I wasn't very careful to keep track of what I was doing when shopping out a Baywatch I just picked up. I'm left with a couple of hex posts (1 1/4" and 1 1/2"), and I'm not sure where they go. I *think* they go on top of a couple of plastics (probably to keep balls from going where they shouldn't but I'm not sure.

I didn't do a complete shop out, so these are basically the only hex posts I removed. That's why I think they go on top of some plastics. Can anyone who has this game give me a hand?

Thanks!

I just became a Baywatch owner recently so I'm not super-familiar with it yet but I'm only seeing one hex post that looks like its that length. Its holding up the plastic behind the wireform above the center saucer. I could be missing one or more of these peices in my game though because it was routed and I have noticed a couple other small peices of hardware missing.

It's odd because according to the manual there aren't any 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" hex posts in the game. I'm missing a few lock nuts already, so I wonder if someone used a hex post instead of a lock nut in a couple of places. I'm going to order some of the small lock nuts. I usually know where a hex post goes because it usually is used to support a wire ramp or something .

Thanks!

Hi Floyd. I can take pictures of my PF you need any. Not sure about your posts off the top of my head though. I know there is a few in odd places like on top of plastics (i think at least).

I just took a quick look at mine and my best guess is that they both go under the lifeguard tower. There are two of them holding a clear plastic piece that snugs up against the wireform. All the other hex posts I see are less than 1". I can upload a pic if you need.

Looks like I've got a screw loose. I think those are the ones you're looking for.

That's it! Thanks so much. That's why I couldn't remember where they went, because I am missing the clear plastic that is supposed to screw into them.
