Evening Everybody,

Please check out our Jurassic Park lighted raptor fence mod. Full description below taken from our store-which we will bring online soon. We hope you like it!!!

Please contact myself or "IJustPrintStuff" with any questions. Here are a few videos. We will be on tonight to answer questions. 10 sets will ship within 7 days. Cost $95 USPS priority box shipping included.

From Store Description-
This product elevates play immersion by introducing a thoughtfully designed, strong, and more movie-accurate raptor pen fence for installation on top of your Jurassic Park raptor pit plastic. Utilizing existing hardware, This relatively large mod includes a wireless remote, allowing you to select flashing patterns of the 4 amber leds atop fence braces, similar to those seen in film. Each post is solid in construction, with exception to the internally wired amber leds. Four runs of pre-cut, braided steel wire compliment the scale appropriately, and look fantastic in front of the excellent Mezel tower or the original.

Once you receive your mod, the installation is quite simple for those with basic experience. Installation notes, video, and myself will be available to ensure you are taken care of. This system utilizes roughly .015-.025 amps as tested, depending on flashing mode and brightness level selected. This mod includes a 5-pin connection, non-idc, to plug into the ticket connector on the cabinet node board. If this does not work for you, (If already using lighted flipper buttons) contact me and I will work to accommodate your requests such as a wall plug or otherwise. This mod system is fused inline as well. Each order will be tested prior to shipment and include hand-soldered, shrink-tubed connections.

I am excited offer game owners an awesome and "impactful" raptor fence mod for your game at a respectful, USPS priority-box shipping-included price. Like the park (had planned anyhow), the fences are always on. When the game's GI goes dark between drains or in certain mode starts, your fence will prominently display the light pattern of you choice, and replicated tapered beams and braided steel wires. I have had many of the prototypes in my game as small changes occurred with design and sizes. I can truely say, without overstating. This adds a really nice element to this section of the game.

Good Morning Everyone-

I just wanted to shoot an update out on the Impact Mods Raptor Fence:

Thing are going great!-We think people will be very pleased with how it looks in your games.

4 Sets shipped out to customers, and should be arriving to their homes today! I have attached some pictures showing part of our process. This was, and remains a soft launch for about two weeks-then we hope to have sets ready to be in games in just days…We have been asked about a non-lighted version, but as this is our flagship for our brand we won’t look at that until we have enough complete sets for anyone that wants one…quick-at a high level of quality and details. I look forward to hearing what our first customers think. Cheers!

Got mine the other day! Wanted to share my feedback on it and the install. I've had the mezel mods raptor fence for quite sometime and while I always liked it, it doesn't resemble the movie prop as well as this one does. Also the the left side would slowly sneak its way to the right over time, resulting in my raptor's arm getting stuck on it. While that issue could have been installation user error on my part (I have terrible luck installing mods LOL), the impact version has enough clearance to where I don't think this will ever happen. I did have to be very careful when slowly prying the sticky tape off of the plastic as not to stress or crack it, so take your time at that step if you're replacing yours. I definitely appreciate that the fence's posts of the impact mod screw on using existing hardware instead of using tape. While of course you always want to be careful when screwing on plastic holdings, I had little fear of snapping them. The plastic molds seem very high quality. While sliding the 4 wires into the cage, behind the targets seemed a little daunting at first it actually wasn't. Took only a few minutes to route them through and ensure they weren't contacting any moving parts or getting pinched. The kit came with plenty of small zip ties for fastening things up too which I wasn't expecting but was thankful that they were included. I did struggle a bit leading the wireform wires through the tiny holes in the plastic without tweaking them out of shape but if you simply take your time, evenly passing them through on each side, and keep the ends from getting frayed it'll all work out. It looks like the wireform may even help prevent air balls from getting stuck behind the raptor (an issue my JP faces all the time).

My primary reason for buying this mod is that it's perfectly modeled against the movie prop plus it has it's own lighting! I haven't messed with the remote control just yet since it shows up on an orange color and fading in/out effect setting that is equally movie accurate. I really like that the LEDs are not too dim or too bright either. You can tell a lot of attention to detail and testing went into creating this mod. The whole "kit" came very well packaged with clear instructions and some funny movie references to boot. I highly recommend it! Super thanks to tbutler6 for creating it! I've added some photos below. As you can tell I have a few other things going on around it .

First set headed out to Europe!

Some progress pics from today’s painting and yesterday’s playfield waxing. We will ship international (DM for actual increase over USPS priority cost, and not a dime more). Why not? Its pinball, and we want these things in some Jurassic Parks! Next single set available to ship Friday afternoon.

Have a great week everyone.

I finally got around to installing this very well put together mod last night in my game. Instructions were very clear and loved the movie references from time to time but overall took me about 25 mins to install. Here is a video of it in action:

Thanks again for this awesome mod Tim!

Just installed the Raptor Fence and I have to say it’s beautiful! It’s an absolute must for JP and adds the thing that part of the play field was missing. It only took about 20 minutes to install and the instructions made my day!
