    What is the purpose of the small square rubber dot / pad on the apron? This is on a Data East Lethal Weapon 3 machine. It is just in front of the Data East logo. Is it meant to be a sort of padding in case someone leans hard enough on the glass and it takes the weight onto the apron / playfield? Mine is sticky, that's why I ask. Feels like there's adhesive on it. Probably just the rubber deteriorating over time though.

    Beauty. Thanks for the replies. I'll probably remove the sticky, deteriorating one I have and put something new in it's place. Cheers!

    Interesting. I don't have any of those rubber pieces snugging up the playfield or glass into position. That's a good question about how much the playfield would move once up on it's back when moving. Not sure what the answer is. Probably changes over time and with each specific machine, i.e. condition and things becoming loose or worn down.
