    Quoted from Royale-W-Cheese:

    99% here have had no issues....just look at all the happy posts.

    I've have been keeping up with this thread however a few of the recent posts mentioned this so it could be a change from the recent batches. Not the OP's fault but if he is having these made the supplier could have changed something. I work in manufacturing and suppliers try to get away with all kinds of stuff since the pandemic.

    True, let see what he works out. Good thing is he will make it right. Great guy. Yes I am a fan. lol

    #353 2 years ago

    Love these covers. Shipping was unbelievably fast. Thank you!

    Quoted from chooch:

    That's disappointing to hear. I was looking forward to buying these but know that would drive me crazy. Plus I don't want to have to keep cleaning the bottom of these with hopes it eventually goes away.

    I have them on 40+ machines… No issues. They keep me from having to clean the glass more often. Well worth the investment in my opinion

    #354 2 years ago

    I'm buying more too, like mine a lot. Just need the colors to come back in stock.

    #355 2 years ago

    Yeah waiting on some cool colors for my incoming Aliens.

    #356 2 years ago

    I just received a couple PinShields. They were pretty tacky and left considerable marks on the glass (same as posted by others). I had to give them a good wipe down and the issue is gone. It feels like mold release to me. Just a leftover from the manufacturing process. It is a good product just know you might need to do a little work before installing them.

    What if all the backsides were cleaned with some formula beforehand? Would that get rid of that residue?

    #358 2 years ago
    Quoted from northerndude:

    Yes, if the back side is clean with Windex (normal glass only) or Sprayway glass cleaner NON-Ammonia (Invisiglass/Voodoo/PDI/Stern HD) then it fixes the issue. When the new batch is made next week I'm going to do my best to pre-clean these to prevent these issues.

    I'm hoping by next year to get these mass produced to prevent any issues as currently I'm still making these by hand....

    Too clean, sweet Bro.

    #375 2 years ago
    Quoted from Lhyrgoif:

    I like the product itself, both as dust cover, protector for glass scratches and a nice place to put my tools when working on a game.
    The first times I removed my pinshields there were this white-ish square pattern on the glass matching the pattern on the shields. It can be removed by wiping a cloth on the glass. After that I scrubbed the pinshields underside with water and a cloth and let them dry. They still leave a barely visible square pattern on the glass though. I suspect it will get less and less over time and in the end probably stop appearing but it's a bit annoying right now having to clean the glas every time I remove the shields.
    Anyone else have this issue and any good way to get rid of it completely?

    Same with mine, on both PDI and Invisiglass. I’m going to clean the glass-facing side with Sprayway as mentioned elsewhere and see if that works.

    What is the size of the Pinshield logo on a standard size mat?

    What is the width of a standard size mat?

    Thanks!

    The dimensions for the the PinShield mats are noted in the Pinside store:

    https://pinside.com/pinball/market/shops/1214-pinshield/02863-pinshield-the-perfect-protector-amp-workspace-mat

    On the mats I received last week, the logo is 7" wide x 2" high.

    Just got my custom size Pinshields for Scorpion and Orbitor 1 so now all my pins have their safety blankets! Scorpion's is actually two Pinshields together (front and back with the logo only on the front piece) since it's a super wide body. Thank you!

    I guess noticed this on my machines and have to wipe down every time I remove the pinshield.
    What a pain in the ass!!!

    I had the same issue. Waiting for a better batch.

    #382 2 years ago
    Quoted from marioparty34:

    I had the same issue. Waiting for a better batch.

    Others have reported that issue as well and it's the reason I haven't pulled the trigger yet. My gameroom tends to gets a lot of dust so the reason I wanted to get these was so I didn't have to keep wiping down the glass. Currently I have towels on my machines which don't look as aesthetically pleasing as these pinshields however they do the job of keeping the glass clean. Having to wipe down the glass to remove the pattern these leave defeats the purpose in my case where I am trying to avoid having to wipe down the glass in the first place. I'm hoping the issue eventually gets resolved because it seems to have just started to happen on some of the recent batches over the past few months because you rarely seen complaints about this early on in this thread.

    Just wipe down the product with a glass cleaner to cut the film when you get them. It is a pain but also a non-issue after that. I wouldn’t hesitate to pull the trigger.

    #384 2 years ago

    No issues here. Had one to wipe. Perfection after that.

    Has anyone’s Pinshields come wrinkled in the middle and curled on the top edges? I just got 5 of them and they’ve been on the machines for a couple days and don’t seem to be flattening out. The top edge’s have permanent pinch indentations maybe from fingers when starting to roll it and a big wrinkle in the middle in the same location on three of them as if they were stretched out when rolled up.
