@buyers. DO NOT Dissamble your units. Yelobird and I might have found a solution that works wihtout having to touch the unit at all.

The bracket will now come with a small notch in the back. Slightly loosen bolt and remove broken piece of left over bracket. Slide bolt into new bracket notch and tighten. Done.

Even though my bracket is also broken and the post office had all kinds of mix-ups getting the package to me (which I can confidently say is the primary reason it's broken), I'm not one bit upset. Why? Cause this is a beautiful work of art, from attention to detail on the piece itself, to its packaging and instructions. I'm beyond impressed and I haven't even seen it light up yet!

Let's have a light party before bracket arrives. I think I will got power it up and then leave it in cabinet till bracket arrives...or maybe use tape for tonight and place it. Who's in?

Safe and Sound at home with eggnog ....life is good.

Lit mine up with a battery and looks beautiful! Though, there is one tube that is noticeably brighter than the others and it happens to be front and center. Looking at it, the LED doesn’t look like it’s covered with the orange goo (for lack of a better word) as much as the other tubes. Not sure I’ll notice it once mounted in the game... will have to wait and see.

Thats more then likely the T-Rex goo. There DNA is typically hotter then other Dino’s. Just having fun lol.

STATUS: Pain on brackets are going through the final stages of drying. These replacement units should be on their way shortly.

Attached in order are some pics to assist with the revised installation instructions.

1. Slightly loosen screw (Do Not Remove) enough to remove any remaining prior mount material. Only screw should remain as shown.
2. Feet wires through outer square segment of support bracket as shown for routing in a later step.
3. Slide bracket to top of mod and remove paper backing from applied glue dot. Careful not to touch glue dot to mod until screw is seated into slot.
4. Slide bracket into mount bracket slotted hole. If tight slightly loosen screw but do not remove. When screw seats in slot press bracket to Mod to align and adhere glue dot. Tighten screw to bracket but Not Over tight!
5. One wire at a time route wires through top wire trough in bracket and further down wire trough in leg of bracket to base as shown.
6. Finish mod mount installation to game per supplied instructions.

For those who have hooked theirs up, which light/insert did you go with? I'd like mine to flash pretty often but not leverage a light that is steadily on throughout gameplay. I see mention of CHAOS and the Control Room. Curious what everyone's favorite is.

Heck no it’s still an Awesome mod. Have to break a few eggs to make a perfect omelette as they say. Well cooks do anyway lol. In my view it’s actually better this happened now vs after selling/shipping hundreds which will happen when people see how awesome this fits the game and theme.

Control room is the perfect balance IMO.

Amber would be way too often. Control room is easier than Chaos. Supply Drop is also very often. I guess it all depends how often you want the can to light up. When you hit jackpots in Chaos the Can lights up like a xmas tree. I find that very satisfying. You also get it lit up in Trex multiballs when you hit jackpots.

Oh it happened. Sideways apparently, but it happened. Maybe an airball will break my bracket someday? I will be so happy to have a spare!!

Thanks for all of the hard work on this and thanks to the Mod Couple for getting out replacement brackets.

Got mine mostly installed, can’t finish hooking it up until I figure out how to split the CN6 that’s being used for my topper, but that’ll be another day.

I've started making parts for the second round.

#530 6 days ago

Got the new bracket today! Only downfall is that if you already have installed the broken one (yes I went against advice and epoxied it back together) is that you have to start from square one with pulling the wires back out from behind the helipad, slide the new bracket over, then push them back in. Was that intended? Am I just being dumb?

Yup gotta start from square one. Well almost. You don't have to take the board off etc... but you do have to waste 15 minutes of your life putting it back together.

Hahah don't get me wrong, not complaining. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't crazy thinking I could just slip the old off and new on while everything is installed. I will happily extend 15 min of my life to go through the motions. Can't thank you guys enough for redesigning and shipping out the new bracket in record time. I was not expecting to receive it so soon. THANK YOU! Also I think I will take your advice and move it to the Chaos light. Didn't realize even on a shitty round I could see it light up with the T-Rex multi-ball.

Received my replacement bracket as well, i had a very small fracture in the original bracket which i glued back together then installed successfully. So thinking I'll leave it as is for now and keep the new bracket as a backup. Kudos flash, this mod just got my twipy vote.

#537 5 days ago

Received my replacement bracket and it's in one piece!! Now to work on getting this bad boy put together and installed.

#538 5 days ago

Mod installed and it looks amazing!!! Only thing I need to figure out next is the CN6 connection. My speaker lights and the topper I have on order also need that same connection. Any ideas anyone?

This is the only thing I could find that offers an additional (1) CN6 type connection:

https://cointaker.com/products/spike-mod-power

It seems if you need to plug into a CN6 type connection, you need to hook directly into it or spend an additional $40 (as seen above) for a separate power supply that has the CN6 type connection on it. The good news is that it offers a CN6 type connection and also leaves the actual CN6 connection open. So you would then have 2 (in total) CN6 type connections to hook into and 2 SAM type +12v connections.

With the CN6 connection in the backbox and being unused from the factory, it is very convenient, but with so many mods now going for it.....it's bound to be a mess, for some, until more CN6 type power splitters or adapters pop up.

As it stands, I am glad I stuck to the SAM type connection on my +12v SPIKE 1 / SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kits (with an included adapter) as adapters and splitters for that SAM type of +12v connection are cheap and plentiful.

Also pdx-mike , Would you mind telling me what type of speaker lights (for an LE) are using the CN6 connection?

I hope this is helpful,

The z connectors required for a backbox splitter are no longer being made. We will not offer splitters for that connection as a result. There are other places to connect that don’t require z connectors. If someone wants a 12v split connection to run some mods, contact me and I’ll make you a harness to connect closer to the coindoor for a small fee.

Alternatively, I can make a splitter for the backbox with the traditional 3 pin connector you would see on a non spike game.

#544 3 days ago

I was expecting a lot more picture of installed mods by now . Or hopefully you guys are just way too busy enjoying the addition to your games that you have not thought of adding some cool pics

That sounds like bad news. It seems like any type of z connectors have always been a bit of a hassle to get a hold of. Especially if you were looking for them with a specific type or lack of friction lock on them.

Is it just the smaller ones that are discontinued or are the bigger ones discontinued too? I never understood why Molex didn't make the z connectors themselves. At one time I talked to a Molex rep and he said people asked about them (or at least something to connect 2 of their female connections together) fairly often, but they just recommended to find a solution from other manufacturers. He seemed to think it was a bit weird that Molex didn't offer anything to do that job also.

UPDATE: I was mistaken when typing this. I thought the CN6 connection was a .100 connection and not a .156 connection. I have never worked with the CN6 connection so I didn't know....I just expected them to be the smaller pins like the Cabinet Node 1 board has.

Not sure I follow?? I have bought Hundreds of these from Pinball Life and never has he run out. They are sold in a long section and takes seconds to make them any size you need. Must be missing something on this.

You are, pancon went under, google it. Pinball life stock is all there likely is, Marco may have some. they are pretty expensive from both if you buy in quantity, but if you really need them, buy it. I’m not using my stock for splitters and will only use them for mods. We are looking to try to print some for our own use. There are alternative wiring configurations for splitters that I’m happy to help people with.

#549 3 days ago

I have a heap of Z connectors that I never ended up using, happy to work out a deal to one of the modders etc.

Yup got the new one but decided to keep the old that I epoxied attached. Too scared to pull the wires back out. Will replace when/if it breaks. But yeah the new one showed up in record time, flawless and with exceptional build quality improvements too! I'll post a pic in a few of the currently working install. Thank you!!! I love this mod.
