      As far as I know Quality does have them. I would strongly recommend the kits if you have high open bowling or alot of groups and company parties that deadwood isn't an issue.

          Quality sells them for $40.00 each. Part # is 12-1060. They work really good. We have 3 centers for a total of 94 machines and they all have them on them. Our fourth center which is being built as we speak has 28 machines that will also have them on there. Saves a lot of time. Even if you have league bowlers, getting deadwood is not an issue. I would recommend them for all machines. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

            notnikle- heard from a friend that when you install the auto oor, the machine gets more difficult to manover and to pull the belts back when you get a deck jam, is this correct?

              Gearhead,I have them in 2 centers(36 lanes)and they are well worth the money.About the only trouble I've had is when installing make sure that you do not overtighten the locknut on the new bolt that you install with the kit.It can cause problems with your sweep hook but once you start using them I think you will like them.

                      I have had the Auto OOR kits installed for about ten years now with no problems ,when the kit was about $ 24 US dollars. It is a great upgrade and eliminates a uneccessary machine stop, which improves your FPS.

                          The kits do require a little work to get right, but who needs to chase OORs during open bowling?? During leagues, we clear the deadwood ... open play, just shoot it.

                            Crazy Swede....no way putting on the automatic oors doesn't make deck jams harder to clear. They don't have any effect on belts, or any other problems or parts. It is just a hook that grabs the pin on the hook selector and keeps the rake from sweeping when the machine detects an out of range. They are well worth the money and not hard to adjust or keep adjusted.

                              Just something to remember when installing these kits. 1) Don't overtighten the locknut, leave the hook a bit loose so it can move properly. 2)Use the washers included with the kit to space the hook over and get it in line with the pin on the hook selector.
