Name of those things we put in the center of a 45 record ?

I jsut was watching a music video which stated off showing an old 45 with one of the things in the center of it that made it possible to play on a regular record player. It got me wondering if those things actually had a specific name ??

Just curious,'

I think it was just a "disk". You would use it for 45's and take it off when you wanted to play a 33.

There are two kinds, those that snap into the record and stay with the record, they are called spindle inserts. Then there are the turntable adapters that stay on the turntable.

The very first 45 single I ever purchased was American Woman by Guess Who in 1970. I remember I couldn't play it because I didn't have any of those 45 RPM inserts.

So I went to Sears and bought these:
