Wow, I never, ever saw one of those metal clip doodads, and my computing experience started with cassette tape. Yes, I'm a young'un. I remember drooling over the like of MK14, NASCOM etc before finally saving up enough to get my first computer, a 16KB Video Genie (didn't think much of the ZX80, so kept saving, knowing what else was now available) Every 5.25" floppy I ever saw just had the slot cut out and the box of disks came with a sheet of write protect sticky tabs.
