Do you have an older “deluxe chain-link” lockout system you’d like to upgrade?

Our “deluxe” system was a popular lockout system we made for 25 years.
Players on a team were linked by short cords.
We took that same concept and created the Line-Up Lockout System.

The Line-Up – compared with the original “deluxe” – has radically improved connectors.

Similarities between the old and new systems allow us to offer an economical upgrade.
We re-use many parts from your old system and pass that savings on to you!

Here’s what we do:

We take your existing system, strip out the old circuits, and install all-new electronics.

Then, we replace your grey cords (the ones with ethernet “phone” plugs)
with our new yellow cords (with tab-less plugs).

What Changes?
♦ Replace circuits in main box and player boxes
♦ New Player and Team Cords (tab-less design)

Questions and Answers

“What systems are eligible for the upgrade?”
Our daisy-chained system we called “deluxe” and “chain-link”.
These were manufactured between 1994 and 2019.
The player boxes used grey “ethernet” cords and looked like this:

“Does my system have to be complete?”
We need as many parts as possible for the upgrade. We need all the player boxes and the control box. If some grey cords are missing, no problem.  If a button is missing, that’s not a problem.
The upgraded system will be complete and ready to use!

“Does my old system have to work?”
No!  This might sound too good to be true … but we’re going to replace all the electronics anyway. 

“Will my tabletop timer work with this new system?”
Yes. It will function exactly the same way that it did with your old system.

“What do I need to send?”
Send your complete system — boxes, buttons, controller, power pack, cords.

“Do I need to send my old carry case?”
You can, but sending the case is optional.
It’s a little less expensive to ship the system without the case.
If you don’t send the case….
(1) please look through all of our case (including pouches and pockets)
(after years of use, it’s common for old parts to be tucked away)
(2) pack all the pieces tightly so they don’t rattle around in the box.

“How long does the upgrade take?”
Depending on our schedule, upgrades take 1-2 weeks. Please allow extra time for transit.
If you have a tight schedule, call and we can check our schedule.

“Does the upgraded system have a warranty?”
Yes! Your upgraded system has a one-year warranty.

“I have other questions you didn’t mention!”
Please call or email. We’d be glad to answer your questions.
