    The brand new Twilight Zone slot machine kickout plunger the operator installed failed in a couple of days. I was at the venue and wanted to play it between tourney games.

    Had to improvise a field solution with kneadable wood putty and a flipper pawl bolt. I cured the putty under the men's room hand dryer. I used a flipper sleeve to get the diameter right with the putty so it wouldn't foul when fired.

    Was still working until it was changed out with the replacement.
