The brake on a small gauge video or audio cassette

How does the brake work on a small gauge video or audio cassette?

Pat Shevlin demonstrates the "brake" on an 8mm video tape cassette. The brake operates on a spring and its two wings engage tiny grooves on the outer edge of the reel. Pulling the brake back releases the reels so they will turn.
