Sanwa JLFD-TP-8YD Detachable Joystick




Sanwa's new Arcade Joystick with a detachable shaft, great for travelers!!!


What's so special?

Unlike Phreakmods Quick Release shaft (The Link), you will be able to secure the detachable shaft by simply rotating the shaft clockwise after you insert the shaft to the base. If you want to release it, simply do it opposite.

Here is Sanwa's tutorial on JLFD-TP-8YT:

*** We recommend that you not install the balltop to the detachable shaft with a screwdriver. Instead, we recommend do it by hand. If you use a screwdriver, the balltop will be very difficult to remove from the shaft.

Length of shaft (up to bottom side of ball): 32.5mm, with a 5-pin male connector (plugs into JLF-H, NOT included).

Easily turn the stick into a JLFD-TP-8Y by disassembling the mounting plate and attach the JLF-CD (sold separately) to obtain a JLFD-TP-8Y-SK.

*** Sanwa uses Loctite to the screws on the joystick to secure the mounting plate. The screws are easily get stripped if you are trying to swap the mounting plate. We recommend using the JIS version of Phillips drivers or removing the Loctite by using a heat gun.
