    First time pin owner here. Can someone please explain what steps I need to take to adjust the flipper angle/alignment on a modern stern game? Thanks much!

    Need an Allen wrench. Loosen the bolt that clamps the flipper bat. Move to desired location and tighten back up. Be sure to allow some gap between under side of flipper bat and the bushing (about a credit card thickness) or it will bind. Proper alignment is done by aligning tip to the divots in the PF at the tip but its your game so align as you prefer.

    Got it. Thanks!
