No not extremely tight...but the inside edge of the clamp on mine is quite sharp. Depending on the material of the label, I have had one or two get slightly marked. 'Cut' might be the wrong word, scratched or grazed is probably a better word. From memory the one this happened to was a 60's LP with a 'rough' paper label, as opposed to a smooth almost shiny label a lot of records have.
That said, generally the labels are absolutely fine even after getting slightly wet. The only other problem I have had is that on one record, the fluid seemed to dissolve part of the print...it seemed almost like it was paint. This record was an early 60's one.
To put in perspective I have cleaned 65 records and have only had these 2 or 3 problems.
