We have been working on these for a while. We showed them at Texas Pinball Festival, but most people did not know what they are. We will have a bit more of a display at Allentown. We should have these ready to sell in 30 to 60 days.
Lighted Magnetic Hinge Covers. Nobody has ever heard of these before, so we wanted a name that describes what they are. The heart of this mod is a relay that we have been working on for a while, a photo sensor power switch. We have many mods that work off of 12 volts. A lot of these mods either need more power then the game can supply, or can cause some electrical interference (EL Panels). To use this relay, just plug into the service outlet, turn on your game, BOOM, power to your mod.
We will be selling this relay separate, but we have a little more work to do on it. This relay will only work on pinball machines that have a service outlet and a light.
These are prototypes, and some of what are in these pictures won't be available to sell until we get some permission, but we will have something for that title. Example, "Theatre of Magic", we won't be doing that title for a while if we do, but we will have a tiger saw and chains with a lock.
I bet Chuck that I could do a full installation in under 2 minutes. I had Chuck record installation, full install in only 91 seconds. I do not suggest doing a install with power on, but I wanted to show the photo sensor. Towards the end of the video, I am moving my hand back and forth over the relay, this is blocking the light to turn on and off the mod. I turned the game off at the end, to demonstrate the mod turning off when you turn on the game.
