    Hi all,

    I'm working on a homebrew and need a coin door. I'm using an repurposed BSD cab, so it already has all the holes cut for a frame. The DE doors are way less expensive it seems than a new WPC one. I assume the 4 holes must be standardized for mounting the frame - but w/out both doors in front of me I can't be certain.

    Anyone know - are the frames/doors standardized so the mounting holes will line up either way?

    I am 99.9% sure they do work

    Thanks! That's pretty good confidence to order buy! I guess worse case I can return it.

    Aren’t they all made by coin controls?

    I think so. I seem to recall pulling a brand new DE coin door off a WPC game I refurbished a few years back.

    Yes.

    Gottlieb doors have a different hole size in cabinet.

    Data East, Happ, and Entropy has standardized mounting hole spacing and are directly interchangeable.
