Quoted from Pinkitten:

You might want to consider going keyless. I like keyless as it really simplifies access. Just an option. Pinball Life carries them as do other suppliers. The size seems to be standard from late 80s pins to the present.

I've been doing these on all my games. The downside, when I take them to shows I have to swap in real locks, but they save a lot of time at home.

That would be an issue, at shows. Although depending on how many you have to convert, it might not be too bad. I’ve swapped so many locks for keyless it probably takes me a couple minutes to change one. The exception is when the locks aren’t the same length, and the door rattles when closed and latched. Then I have to use a different latch, or bend it slightly to close tightly.

Good idea this keyless version. Mine won't leave the house so it's a good plan... Let's see who sells it in Europe...

Yeah, it's a couple minute swap. I do bring usually 6-10 games to the Northwest show and smaller amounts to Emerald City Comicon for the classic arcade, swapping the locks to keyed is just part of the game prep. For the 25 times during the rest of the year when I want to change the volume, a setting, or get into the game, I really like having the quick keyless action. I do it on all my arcade games too.

Very cool you bring your pins to shows.

Is there not a way to reset grand champ? Ours is always on 50 million,

Quoted from TheLaw:

Thats the programmed GC so I dont think there's anyway to lower it

I stand corrected, it can be changed in standard adjustments #23. Never even thought this was an option as it's a disgrace to change it

Thanks to Markharris2000 I am now a club member. I've had the game on stream a few times now, and trying to reach Atlantis is going to keep me busy for a while, for sure!

I help put on the NW Show and we have a huge collector community that all brings their games, we usually have like 400-500 games all on freeplay the whole weekend. And then we do the classic arcade at Emerald City Comicon, Norewescon, and in the past PAX. All to promote the hobby and have people play our games. It's loads of fun, lots of work, and makes me keep a bunch of my games in great working order. And we do repair parties, hangouts, etc. Everyone that's a collector here are all networked, help each other, and help put on these events. Or at least before the pandemic, it's going to take a little work to gear up again. But I highly recommend getting involved with your most local show and networking with other collectors, it's a great part of the hobby!
