  • Gottlieb flipper leaf switches

    On my genie someone has chopped off the female spade lugs and soldered the wires direct to the terminals on the leaf switches for the flipper.
    I have purchased new leaf switches and wanted to know should I solder the wires back on or crimp lugs back on?
    Where can I get these small lugs?
    Thanks for any help.

    Just solder them on just like every other pinball.
    I’m guessing it was an on-site service thing

      yep .. they're the crappy thin ones that get loose then break when you bend them tighter.. its easier to cut them off and solder than find another one.

        EOS switches are one part Gottlieb got wrong infact every other brand has better switches including the cabinet switches in the flipper circuits. If it was my Genie I'd be putting in Williams switches as they last longer, carry more power, are just so much better. You'll need to "make" them fit but your flippers will be stronger for longer and the switches will probably be easier to get and be cheaper to buy.
        Williams made there ones to handle 50volts so only having 25volts on a Gottlieb, you'll rarely need to touch them.
        Won't be original, but it will be better.
