DVD Hub Tags

Do you use hub tags on your DVDs or CDs?  Do your patrons have any concerns about the discs jamming in the players?  We have had a rash of thefts and are considering hub tags for security, but are hesitant over the potential damage.  We no longer lock the DVDs in cases and have no desire to go back to that model.

What does your library do?
