When installing the trackball, make sure the trackball is in the correct orientation. (Refer to picture below.)

1. Fill any existing holes in the metal control panel.

7. If using Plexiglas on your control panel, it is highly recommended that a 3-1/2" hole be cut in the Plexiglas for the trackball. This allows for players to use the full height of the trackball. Carefully file and smooth the edges of the hole in the Plexiglas so players do not cut their hands when playing.
