This is a fix for the issue of balls falling into the cabinet during play. It installs quickly with no permanent modification (hooks around the lower apron and uses the factory bolt). Credit to "jeffspinballpalace" for the suggestion to tackle this fix

Shipping will begin Thursday once boxes arrive (or on the 2nd if you're in run #2 of the LDG mod).

I've added a lifetime guarantee to the sale page. As noted there, I expect these ball-stops to last the life of the machine, but will send another out at no charge should anything happen (including if the dog ate it ...or in my experience, the significant other throwing it in the trash...bye bye Sparky air-ball shield [fortunately caught it before trash went out ]).

Shipping a batch of these tomorrow and have a few extra in case I get orders by noon or so tomorrow. Next shipping day is likely Saturday.

Just got all of these shipped out today (aside from those shipping with LDG mods). Everyone should have a tracking update on the order page

If anyone on a future LDG run wants one of these included with free/combined shipping, just send me a PM.

While it's somewhat obvious how this installs, the ones that shipped out earlier this week with LDG mods didn't include instructions, so here they are just in case

It's been brought to my attention that one of my customers on this mod had a different clearance than my machine, leading to the auto-plunger hitting the base of the ball-stop. He was able to fix this issue on his machine with some washers under the lower apron area, but I don't expect anyone to have to do that.

Please let me know if anyone else is having this issue, or perhaps chime in to confirm fitment on your machine.

I'll be re-working a slimmer version, so future orders will have more clearance. Thus, I can either send a new one out at no charge or offer a refund to anyone with a clearance issue (I did worry that my machine wouldn't be 100% the same as others). Sorry to anyone this may affect.

Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

Mine fit fine, and wonder if the guy with problem tried adjusting it. After putting screw through ball-lock then the plastic guide and then the side of the vertical clear plastic, you add a nut and tighten. Now to tighten you screw clockwise and this tends to push the front edge of the ball-lock down about 1/8 inch and you now have a clearance issue like described. To resolve this you grab top edge of ball-lock and push it up higher on the edge (to the top). This will rotate the whole ball-lock backwards (counter clockwise) and now you should have the clearance needed.

Thanks for the fit confirmation and additional information. Future orders (including earlier orders that will ship with the LDG mod) will get the slimmer version just in case. It's only a slight difference. As long as the original version is fitting from the first run, there's no need for the slimmer one.

As it's been brought to my attention that Spooky may have had another design of their shooter lane/plunger cover (with two tabs/screws instead of one), I'm posting this here to better show what yours should look for this mod to fit. As this is the first such difference I've heard, my presumption is that the vast majority of machines were made similar to mine.
