Apologies in advance as I didn't know which forum to post this in

I had an interesting thought while working on my DE Simpsons with the Playfield up. Is there some kind of a Hammock-esque "cover" device that can attach to the Cabinet to catch any parts,screws,etc. that might fall while your working underneath there? If not, would it be practical enough to try inventing something like that and submitting the idea to a company for patenting,etc.?

Some people have made trays with angled bottoms to put on the side rails

I bought a shallow cat litter box to stick under the playfield when I'm working on it. Saved me MANY headaches when I inevitably drop a screw or something.

On EMs, I lay a towel down over the bottom panel.

Lot of people just lay a light coloured towel into the cabinet.

Something with scratch resistant hooks that could go over the rails, with a cloth in between could work, however to mass sell something like that, may not go over that well.

I like the id a -- don't know if I'd go a patent route.. not very big market but I bet you could sell some on here in the marketplace.. thinking mesh nylon with 4 or 6 point support that clips to existing parts?
