  • Pin In Lift Rods

    Recently I have had two occurences of a pin getting caught in the lift rods (A-2 machines. This makes the ball get a gouge all around the ball. My mechanic says there is nothing we can do, that it just happens once in a while....

    Any thoughts...

    Re: Pin In Lift Rods

    It's going to happen once in awhile but there are things you can do. Zot makes a lift rod clamp that allows the pin to go through and I believe you can also use a bungee cord setup. I use the Zot lift rod clamp and might get one or two pins caught in a year but it doesn't hurt the ball.

    good luck
