Mr. Pinball Tip:

When removing parts from the playfield, the best way to catalog them is by using cardboard (see cardboard tip)... but, however, there are just some parts and assemblies that just CAN'T be mounted to the cardboard layout --- so you've got this assembly which screws into the playfield, if it is removed, you run the risk of it falling apart in your hands, simply because everything relies on that one screw that is supposed to be screwed into the playfield.

Solution: Put a wire tie on the end of that screw to act as a 'nut'. Make sure that it is on there tight, though... Abra-cadabra! You have an assembly that won't fall apart!
