The RL01/RL02 Users Guide (bitsavers.org/pdf/dec/disc/rl01_rl02) Figure
2-25 on page 2.35 describes the positioner restraining bracket that
should be put in place before shipping.  It is just a little square
piece of metal (probably aluminum) with a single screw that holds it
down that sits in front of the carriage to keep it from rolling into the
pack area.

Of course, you don't want a pack in there while you are moving it
around.  :)

It also mentions on that page a couple of shipping screws on the bottom
of the drive to restrain the spindle/blower motor from turning.
