  • Deck issue

    I have a lane that after a strike is thrown on first ball the deck is going all the way to the floor. I've messed with the dector rod adjustment, but I cant get the deck to stop where is supposed to (90 degrrees strike) to know for sure if the rod is correct. Suggestions?

    This causes lots of double loaded deck jams.
