I love all of the tools that you guys have and use. Seems like there is always something else I can but. I am looking to add a Cliffy to the scoop on the left side of a KISS Pro. There are two long posts that need to be removed to install the cliffy. These are long with a hex at the bottom. I can't use a hex nut screwdriver because of the length of the post. Is there another tool that I can use or would you just use a regular wrench to get it out of the playfield? I have never installed a cliffy before.

1/4" drive deep socket should work nicely.

If you don’t have a deep enough socket, or your reach to the hex base is obstructed, I use ignition wrenches.

Yeah, I randomly found them while looking for a cheap set of deep sockets. They are a life saver for repairing pop bumpers

I use this for the three long screws.

Yeah those snap on sockets are nice. That post is long. Might have to go find some.

You don't remove it from the top at all. That whole assembly comes out by removing the two nuts underneath. And I'm pretty sure you'll have to remove the 3 screws holding the vuk assembly to fit the Cliffy in. It's not hard at all.

Oh man. I am so glad that I posted this now. I thought that the posts just screwed into the playfield.

You still have to hold both sides. Just drop a socket that fits the hex over the post then hold a flat blade screwdriver in the gap between the post and the socket edge. Works a treat.

Wow that's old school snap on script.
