Has anyone ever seen this modification before? I can't figure out what it is supposed to do...any ideas? This was found on one of our Wall Streets.

Where does the wire go to under the playfield?

Is it a handle, to aid in lifting the playfield just enough to get a hand under it?

Robertson screws, was this bingo ever in Canada?

I thought of that but why would you have the one on the left? It is mounted flush to the playfield. And why are they wired together? Gotta see where the wire on the right piece goes to under the playfield.

Is there a way to push a piano wire in under the lockdown bar, in the corners of the cabinet? Those bars could have had power to them, hoping to shock a potential cheater? Just a guess.

The bar on the left blocks the instructions, so it must of been important enough to install them. Just odd.

We thought "Cheater Shocker" too...I will trace the wires and report back here later this evening...

It was to prevent a stiff wire from being used to manipulate the balls on the playfield.

Makes sense...plus it was definitely wired to something, but the wire was cut off underneath the playfield. Maybe it was connected to the tilt circuit.
