hi table Hockey Fans

Does anybody know how to keep the players from lifting off the pegs? My game has been used maybe 20 - 30 times. I have the 50th Anniversary edition but I don't think that matters cause the rods are the same. Thanks for your time

Marcus

I go to a store named "Michael's" a craft store chain here in the US and purchase "Aileens Tack It Glue."

Just dab some glue on there, push the players' down, and you should not have a problem anymore.

Have fun!

Here's my two cents...
The taping idea works well, but if you there's a chance you'll be removing the players often or if you don't want to be so precise on the tape cutting and thickness, you should look into getting some Aleene's Tack-It Over & Over Glue.

This stuff keeps the players from rising and it allows the removal and replacement of players easily. No tape needed!

I believe they carry it a Michale's Craft store and Joann Fabrics store. It'll last you several years.

Be careful not to use too much. Let it set up for at least one half hour. If you get any on your ice surface, clean it up right away with a little baby oil.

Here's a link to what the "stuff" looks like:


You'll find many other uses for the stuff. I've used it many other items besides table hockey. So has my wife and kids.

Like Paul said if you are going to remove players often you need to look at the tack-it option.

I don't change players out very often so what I do is modify the actual players that are having issues. I use a glue called zap-a-gap which you can get at most hobby stores.

I have the helping hands tool from Paul's website and use it to hold the problem player inverted at a slight angle. I put a small drop on one side (the narrow side) of the slot and let it dry a day or two. The key is using very small amounts until you get the right fit where the player is snug on the post.

Sometimes I have to repeat the process two or three times. But if you accidently put too much in you can use an exacto knife to scrape it down until it fits.

Lastly - make sure it's completely dry before you put the player on the peg or you'll end up buying a new rod.

Make sure you get "tack it over and over" glue as Paul suggests. Aleene's
makes many different glues and the regular "tacky glue" doesn't cut it!
