    Bought one Lawlor game- Family Guy and traded another one- really nice RBION. AND…..

    Tried and tried again, multiple ways, couldn’t get the power cord to roll neatly back into hole. Got right to end a number of times but stuck out too much to make for neat shipping and transport. Does not have wood rails and cord is just a little thicker than 4 round nylon guides so when putting on dolly creates a little side to side.

    Not a huge deal but wondering if anyone has hack/best practice they could share?

    On my wpc’s, I remove the plate and pull the cord
    modern sterns - easy
    bally’s - wrap and put into cabinet

    Thanks for any / all advice

    Usually some painters tape works/worked for me.

    Don't roll the cord into the hole, push it through. If you can't then open the machine and pull it through, they are just loose in the cabinet. The hole isn't for the cord it's for the plug.

    Yeah, pull the cord from the inside of the cabinet if you have to (if it gets stuck). I have stuffed a plastic bag in the end before to keep it from falling out.

    Aaaaaaah! Feel like a dufus, should have opened up but thought it was a fixed cord as it didnt seem to slide through so will pull from inside…thanks everyone!
