Installed two on the right side of my hobbit today , will post up pics tomorrow afternoon. They look so great on the machine, easy to form / bend the mount as you see fit. Some work is needed to use these on a hobbit as the connector supplied is a trifurcation style , TH takes a 2 pin molex (I think .93 you will need 2 male per barrel , I re-used the existing 2 pin molex) , the upper right side I had to move from the post mount at the habitrail (they don't clear the habitrail on that mount point) to the post mount just above the right flipper. The lower light you will have to add about 6" to the leads , you could possibly re-route the supply but adding length to the leads was easier for me. I pulled all the fasteners from the plastic so I could route is as best as I could .The lack of reflective material on the inside is a moot point , I see no light loss what so ever . They are very sturdy and well built , I like that black zip ties (x2 per barrel) are included and the leads are also shrink wrapped for a cleaner look than the original vinyl braid . nice addition to any TH, highly recommended mod , quick to ship, great communication. Added bonus for me the spots from TH match exact to my RRWOZ and I will re-purpose them there for a 6 spot enhanced GI.

Bob add 6'' and they will be fine , only need 2 black zip tie for the top (right side) 4 black zip ties for top (left side) and 5 white zip ties per side for the bottom ( 2 or 4 spots , is the same as you have to cut 5 per side) leave the molex connector off in a separate bag so the wires can easily pass through the playfield and then the customer can push the MALE .93 pins into the connector ( connector is FEMALE ) i have a .93 extractor so i reused mine, and removing it made it easy to remove the original. polarity is a moot point. if the bulbs don't work, pull the bulb , rotate it 180 and it will work.
left side i removed all the hardware holding the habitrail down to feed the wires for the lower spot. the bracket on the lower spot remove it , flip it around and re-install it on the barrel. it drops the barrel abit into a better position and most importantly the ball will clear the bracket on the habitrail on the way to the kickback, it doesnt clear it they way it comes in the box.
i will post pics after work tonight.

The lower barrel on the right I am going to remove it and flip the bracket I like the way it sits with it flipped like on the left , the upper right one I am going to get a 3/4 metal thread post to lift it a bit higher

Last post I promise !! U would not believe how loose all the hex posts holding the habitrails were and it not from playing I have maybe 25 plays on my machine, who ever installs those needs a gym membership , the post supporting the left habitrail under the divertor was only on 2 turns.
