Quoted from Pin_Guy:
There are protectors around the scoop hole and while they do frame the hole, the top of the bracket is below the surface which will still allow the ball to strike the corner edges of the opening.
My concern is the ball hitting these edges will chip away at the clear coat around the hole. The lighter colored area I have circled could be the clear coat separating from the surface due to multiple ball impacts to the same area.
Looks like the SOL protector is hanging a little low on the right side compared to the left.
In fact the whole protector is a little low.
The edge of the metal should be level with the surface of the playfield in order to actually work.
All playfield edges have to be beveled or protected from ball strikes or you will get chipping.
Can the protector be adjusted to the correct height?
