    As you see highlighted on the pic. My coin door has a “pad” under what I believe is the slam tilt switch.

    When I took my door apart for restoration, this pad came off and is damaged and I am not sure if there is a need to put a new one on or not. If so, where can I find this “pad”?

    It’s a square adhesive pad with a hard (plastic??) top layer

    I have a Pinbot btw.. in case it matters

    Those square 3M things come to mind. You peel off both sides and stick stuff to something. Don't peel off one side. Peel off the other and stick to the coin door.
    There is a very thin pad between the two adhesive sides.

    Every hardware store should have something similar you could use.

    What it was is a square of double sticky tape with a square of fishpaper stuck to it.

    The purpose was to insulate the weighted blade from ground and falsely triggering a slam tilt.

    You can perform the same function by just placing a couple of squares of electrical tape where the weighted blade touches the door.
