We've got DLT-7K drives in two libraries (one Breece Hill Q7, and one huge
StorageTek library) that have mechanisms so that what is normally done by
the "flap" by hand, that lever is turned via a rod going into the side of
the drive (on the right-hand side).  So, a motor/mechanism does the "locking"
and "unlocking" of the tape, rather than a hand hitting a flap on the 
front of the drive.
