Going through a Liberty Bell, found one of the ball traps cracked pretty badly on all 4 corners.
Super glued back but wanted to reinforce.
Took a wall outlet cover and cut it with a hot knife to fit. Worked quite nicely as added support.

Because there no fun in fixing a new part. I'm sure OP would have opted for new if it was a topside piece(guessing.)

Thanks for the links, I am very familiar with both sites.
Since it’s bottom side I didn’t care about appearance.
As mentioned in the title, this was a hack.
I thought it was pretty cool that a wall outlet cover did the trick.
Had this been a more expensive machine I would’ve sprung 3bucks for OEM parts LOL
