ChrisKewl Posted June 3, 2020 Share Posted June 3, 2020 (edited) Do you have 3rd party carts that won't fit properly into your 7800 or 2600? I've personally experienced on a few of my systems; this is why I created the "Lock-On 2600", the Tight Cart Fix for 2600 games. No modding needed, just attach the Lock-On 2600 to your cart and plug it into your system. It couldn't be easier! This has been tested with many systems and the compatibility is stellar, see all the reviews in this very thread! Updates: 03/26/2022: The items from Winz were returned and the hardware is being reused, sadly the 3D prints are not in a usable state and will be recycled. I received the shipment of 100 circuit boards and 100 card edge connectors, this means I can make a good quantity of these for a while. Extra m3 12mm screws have been ordered, should be here in the next week. Each cart takes 3 screws for stability. @Albert has the test unit, hopefully no issues arise. 03/19/2022: A new version was created, now v3. Each case now includes clips on the front to help remedy separation and some side grips for easier removal. https://twitter.com/ChrisKewlTV/status/1505309243502649349 The Lock-On 2600 will no longer be sold by @winz_mod. The remaining stock will be sent back to me. Once the stock is returned they will be rebuilt and sent to @Albert for the AtariAge's store. 07/28/2020: Round 3 carts have been shipped out by @winz_mod. Everyone should've received a DM on tracking. If you haven't please let me know. We are still evaluating our options on placing stock in the AtariAge store. 07/23/2020: Round 3 carts are being sent to @winz_mod , they should be there on Monday. Then it'll take another week to prepare for shipment. Expect these to go out around the first week of August. I will send tracking numbers once we are ready for that I do apologize for being a week late, I fractured a bone in my foot. Everything is good now We are evaluating our options on further releases. One option we are considering is placing them on the AtariAge store. 06/30/2020: Round 2 carts will be shipped out today. Everyone should have a tracking number. Round 3 carts are being 3D printed as we speak. @winz_mod has ordered more stuff to make sure we can accommodate everyone in Round 3. Expect these to be ready around July 15th. 06/26/2020: Round 2 carts were shipped to Winz. There are 10 more carts we are sending. Each cart was tested twice before being sent out. People who requested, in order, are being contacted to see if they still wish their order fulfilled. Carts are the v2 version so they are a bit slimmer. Due to this we had to use some glue with the screws used to connect the top and bottom parts. We also tried a new method of bonding the shells to the 3D printer bed so the back logo may seem a bit cloudy. A bit of high-grit wet sandpaper to polish should give you a nice clean finish if desired. 06/21/2020: Round 1 shipments are all delivered but one, the USPS machine ate it. So we owe a lucky person a new cart. Speaking of new carts, take a look at the v2 case. Slimmer and with logos! https://twitter.com/ChrisKewlTV/status/1274581215119638529 The new PCBs should arrive next week and they are quite pretty as well. I will be showcasing those when I have them in hand. 06/10/2020: Round 1 shipments are going out today being shipped from Brooklyn by @winz_mod. Tracking numbers will be given once available. Round 2 boards have been ordered and should arrive by the end of the month. 06/03/2020: We are out of stock but we have ordered more. @winz_mod is waiting for the card edge connectors and shells so he can build them and ship them out.
