Clearing Coin Mechanisms in Crane Machines

Recommended Posts

I have a few Crane Machines and a problem that has cropped up in two of them is people putting half dollars into the coin mechanism and then it gets jammed.  What is the easiest way to clear these coin jams?  I was able to get in there once and clear but some of the coin mechs don't allow easy access to the coins inside and I am afraid I would have to pull it apart.  Is there an easier and fool proof way of doing this other than having to get out a screwdriver every time and risking not being able to get it back on there?  Perhaps spraying something in there that would free the coins or some other method... I just need to clear these quickly so I can be on my way.

Close the coin entry plate so that only quarters can get through.

Depending on the coin mech, either use Imonex R9 rolldown mechs or get restrictor plates to keep anything but a quarter out.

Spray something in it to free it and be on your way......har har har.  No magic elixirs exist.
