Bumping this - I purchased and installed mod almost a year ago (see post on 1st page of this thread), and I have not had one single airball since. Prior to installing, this was an airball machine causing game stoppage as well as a lot of damage to the components in the machine. Just wanted to bump to thanks maffewl again for this awesome quality mod. Every single POTC should have this installed!

PM sent, looks like a really nice mod to get rid of the hideous sneeze guard!

I'll be at SFGE in Atlanta if anyone is interested to save on shipping. Only have 1 left, so if more requested, I'll have more cut. LMK.

Just installed the ship guard this game should have come with!

Great simple idea, works perfectly, and was packaged quite nicely. Now I can see the pirate ship perfectly, especially the light up cannon fire the mod the former owner installed. Highly recommendable inexpensive mod.

Barely see it during game play. And no air balls!!

Shipping was fast and quality was top-notch. Installed the airball deflector over the weekend and it makes a huge visual difference. Thanks maffewl for a great product.

About 10 minutes to install... much better to looking with the sneeze guard removed.

Thanks Bill. I removed the sneeze guard this evening and installed your protector. I have a clamp (various sizes) to hold the nut while unscrewing the screws from the sneeze guard.

The two posts that the protector needed to connect to also needed to be held in place while unscrewing the screw to place the protector on. Whole process took less than 10 minutes (including photos).
