    Saw this in the clearance section in pinballlife

    Hard to believe Terry and crew don't know . . . so can any of you experts out there identify it?

    It looks like part of a High Speed wireform (above each slingshot).

    my understanding is they have a box of them, so it is not a partial or broken off piece from something. It does look like it would be used for something like that.

    It kinda looks like it gets screwed down on both ends, to surfaces that are perpendicular to each other. Like some kind of guard or guide.

    Tie hangers. Just in time for Father's Day.

    Got to be a hold-down for something...possibly a rail or ramp. The loop is a screw hole and the top curve hooks over the top of something to hold it in place. It's legit....I looked at my crystal ball before posting.

    I can't picture any game where something gets held in place with a wire hook that is only attached at one end.

    Maybe it's a mount for some plastic doodad, like the T2 hunter ship mount kind of.

    That is why it is a mystery...........

    Hey, I'll bet Hitler knows what it is!

    Seems like it'd be great for mounting random plastic toys. I hear PBL has a whole bag of these things. One of you mod guys should SCOOP THAT S#!T UP.

    It's the thing that holds the wachamacallit to the doohickey on that one game.
