    I had a rollover relay contact break on a sure shot so I ordered some from PBR. They came without the little tit like contact on the end that actually makes the contact . The contacts underneath the playfield that actually make the connection. How am I suppose to put one on.

    If it's just a normal switch blade it's like this:

    A) Find the hole that matches up with your other switch blade and point. Note: don't align the solder tail with the other blade. One to the left, one to the right.

    B) Insert the point into the correct hole and make sure it's in the right one, and the solder tail is opposite the other one.

    C) Flip the blade over and place it on something that will not mar the surface of the contact. I use a hardwood cutting board (D).

    E) It's best to use a peen hammer, but a normal hammer will work. Peen the little contact peg flat onto the blade. Just for insurance I also apply some solder to the peened side.

    Does this help, or is it another type of switch contact?

    One more question where do you get the contact point to put in the blade . My blades came with no contact point.

    The Pinball resource has them. Tell them what the application is on what game and they will send you the right stuff. I'm surprised they didn't ask you if you had any to install in the blades

    I just ordered a bunch of blades I didn't know they came like that. I don't ask a bunch of questions when I order I try to do my homework with the right order numbers. I got hollered at once when I called
