Quoted from Riffbear:

I just received one from Bay are amusements for iJ and it was delivered ROLLED UP! Major WTF!!!??
I layed it out over night with tons of books to try and weigh it down but the problem is, the end pieces to "mode start hole" will not bend back down onto the play field.

Bought one for my TZ from Best Of Pinball (i'm in the UK) and it came flat-packed in a huge box!

Not built up the courage to fit it yet though.

Quoted from comat0se:

Does anyone have, or has seen one of these installed on The Shadow? My Shadow has some kind of bad insert lifting...

I'll be installing one on my Shadow soon. Happy to report back once it's on.

I installed one on my Addam's Family about 300 plays ago - it's great! The only thing i found annoying is some magnetic dirt has collected underneath around the lower right Power magnet causing a mild discolouration - especially noticable when my blue LED topper lighting is on. To clean this out i'd have to remove the flippers, slings and guide rails. Now i've written it down that's not that much to do to be honest! I'm obviously just too lazy or preoccupied with playing it!

Quoted from ff6735:

Has anyone purchased one of these AND installed it AND has photos of it they are willing to share?

I've installed one on my Addams Family; here are some photos of it in situ.

The only thing that bothers me, ever so slightly, is a small bit of white 'fluff' over Quick Multiball which is trapped under the protector. I don't have any photos of it taken out again to show the scratches or stuff because taking it out right now just to show that and remove that fluff would just be silly, sorry. Besides that, i can't see any obvious marks on it. During installation it took a few mins of marking with a sharpie where it didn't line up quite right, so i just took a dremel to it and hey preto - snug fit.

I have one for TZ, but haven't built up the courage to strip the playfield back enough to fit it yet...

Quoted from Gorno:

What have you guys been using to cut these protectors? Just an exacto knife? There are a few tight spots on my F-14.

I used a sharpie to mark the bit needing a trim, then a dremel with a soft grinding edge to make the modifications.

Had some tight spots on my TAF too, glad I took the time to fit it though.

Quoted from Robl45:

Why is it bad if the protector sticks to the playfield?

Looks messy - like it’s got damp patches.

Quoted from pinballaddicted:

We have invented a tool to get underneath the protector each service to stop the protector sticking to the playfield.

Show us your tool!!!
