    Bally introduced the "lock ring" in 1956, as far as I can tell. They used lock rings on their line of bingo games as well as some novelty games such as Skill-Roll. I'm not sure when the rings were discontinued. If you've got one you'd sell that isn't bent or rusted, I'm interested. The part is circled in red on this flyer for Bally Key West. I just need the ring, not the lock. Thanks.

    Be careful, the rings don't always fit the locks they sell new. You may have to adapt. I've had issues where the lock won't seat through the ring properly.

    I just noticed(ah) that I don't have a "ring" on my machine(Bikini) either!?!?
    How does it attach?

    The lock itself holds it on. I only use them if the door has been pried open. The ring will hide some damage to that area.

    Very true. You may have to use an offset cam to account for the thickness of the ring or sometimes file a little off of one side of the opening on the ring for the lock to fit through. No big deal though.

    Thanks for your generous help, Dennis.
