Installation Key:
Easy
: Kits that require one connection to the game and that don’t involve more than 10 minutes installation time
Moderate:
Kits that require only one connection but require a bit more time to install due to their design. 
Advanced:
Kits that require you to lift the playfield and find specific connection points. Typically these kits use alligator clips and therefore require you to find a specific flasher and the positive/negative. Again, not super difficult but does require more knowledge.

Price Key:
$ less than $70
$$ $70-149
$$$ greater than $150
