    Not my idea but I saw my pinball tech guy using tube plumbing insulation to prevent the top of the backbox from being dinged by a raised playfield.

    Basically you take one of those foam tubes that wraps copper tubing and split it open. Snap it onto the top of the backbox.

    Think it would be especially useful when shipping and the apron is off. Trough edges can gouge the head pretty good.
