Cabinet protection art, in the Half-Moon kit, are for pinball games in the Stern Pro families. The half-moon -- a metal semicircle with a hole for the flipper button -- helps protect a machine's cabinet art, which can preserve the asset's resale value.

These kits cost $13.99, not including freight or any applicable sales tax.
