Have you noticed that when you remove a record from the deck there are some little popping sounds? If you do, what you are hearing is the discharge arising from the static charge that built up as the groove walls slid under the stylus , friction arising from the relative movement of the surfaces. Have you wondered whether you could prevent the static build-up? Have you wondered whether the friction affects the tracking? Probably not! However if you wanted to do so and find out, you could do as follows;
Using Duct Tape (e.g.) attach on all four sides a rectangle (8"x6",say) of absorbent material (flannel, cloth, etc) to the inside top of the lid. This material should be dampened somehow. Obviously you should avoid any actual drops of water in/on the deck as a whole.
Play a favourite LP side, preferably with the lid down, and when you remove the disc, with luck, no little pops!! Ex-static.
