How Not to Ring

Today, a short tutorial from your friends at Firebird, in case you’re considering putting new rings on your pinball machine. Please DO NOT use the following methods we’ve seen in actual pinball machines in recent weeks. Thank you.

Let’s just call this “other.” If you’re thinking of doing anything “other,” just don’t. Can you tell what this Pinball MacGyver used here? Check below for a closer look!
Yes, a broccoli band was wrapped around these metal guides. Don’t. Just don’t.
