  • Ball lift / kicker assb. Assistance

    Einstein's of the 82/70's. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cool.gif[/img]
    We have an issue w/ "pad starter" sliding back up.
    Eventually it moves far enough up to hang balls in the hole. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif[/img] The kicker(s)have no problems getting the ball in and balls return fine when the pad is in properly. Hence to say, pad moves up, no balls return. Last about 12-15 balls before the calls start. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif[/img]
    Any suggestions on how to make this pad stay in place? But, be removed when needed for replacement when wore-out?

    If its SIMS, its only a game.

          There's a hole in the side of the bracket for the afore mentioned screw. It's part of the OEM design. I use 1" hex head sheet metal screws.

            <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Yep, King, Old School, and Dutch are absolutely right. That is the best way to secure start pad.

                I should have been more clear. I glue the starter pad with contact cement. I do also use a sheet metal screw in the bottom of the pad.

                You know when you have to repace the starter pad the contact cement is really not that bad to get off of there. There is some clean up but the glue does hold better than just a screw for me.

                  I've never had a problem with the screw alone but contact cement sounds like a good choice if it is still trying to climb out of the bracket.

                      Some older brackets never had holes drilled in them. I used to glue and screw them in because when the first urethane came out they wouldn’t stay in to well.
