Mr. Pinball Tip:

On some machines (Ballys from the late 70's and early 80's) the bar that locks the backglass in place has sharp, 90 degree edges. When in the 'unlocked' position, this edge will point forward and upon removal of the backglass can scratch the paint in the upper left hand corner of the backglass. What I have done to fix this is remove the locking bar and grind off those 90 degree corners to 'round'.
