Noob question.

I was trying to install some new Stern Button Guard side rails from Pinball Life, and the top side rail bolt is blocked by the Back Box hinge. There is a Huge hex on the inside of the cabinet. Is there a special tool to unscrew this hex?

I've installed a few sets of those stern button guard rails and I don't remember ever having to remove the backbox hinge bolt....

They won't just slide straight out / up towards the front of the machine after taking off all the little screws in the rail??

I didn't consider folding down the backbox. DUMB! lol

Not Dumb.... Sometimes ya just have to step back and check out things from a different angle or "outside the box"
