  • Pin not falling into 9 bin

    Have a lane where once in a while when the 9 pin is dropped onto the bin the bottom of pin will hit the pin stop and will bounce back up and the head of the pin will rest on the back rail of bin. then the distributor will get caught on the pin and a pile up will occure.
    Any suggestions?

    Have you checked everything in that bin...butt spacer & shock mounts, pin guides & holders? Also, are you 100% sure the pin is bouncing back up vs. not falling all the way into the bin?

      You may want to adjust your dizzy a little bit either way. Might just be hitting at a slight bouncy spot on the butt guide

        Everything in bin is good nothing broke. I have tried adjusting the distributor a little side to side but does not seam to make a difference.
        I am sure it is bouncing back I have seen it a few times.

          Try replacing you shock mounts on the butt guide with new ones. They might be spongey and giving extra bounce

            What Ausweegie said. We've had the same issue with pins trying to bounce out due to bad shock mounts.

              Or failing that ask for a durabin

                Just spitballing here..... How old are the pin holders?? Older ones that are worn can get sticky and not allow the pin to slide back into the bin. At worst flip them over and use the bottom side.
