• Nintendo Entertainment System NES - NESRibbonFixer Kit


This is a drop in replacement kit for the 72 Pin Cartridge Slot on a Front Loader NES.

Don't buy those cheap replacement 72 pin connectors that grip the cartridge to death and can potentially cause damage.

Our kit has the optional feature of AVRCIC which you can buy seperately and solder in yourself.

We also use the aid of springs to make ejecting the cartridge easy just by giving it a little wiggle.

You can still close the Cartridge Door when a cartridge is inserted where as other's you can't.

Please Note: Colours may vary!


This is based on the open-source NES SlotMaster:

Installation Instructions

1. Remove the 6 screws holding down the original Cartridge Slot Mechanism.
2. Remove the 2 screws holding down the RF Box.
