The art cover replacement top panel offers one of the best ways to customize your joystick. The plexiglass sits atop specially cut artwork, allowing you to add or replace new custom artwork to match your joystick theme.
The earlier model of HitBox has slightly different button positioning than the newer model that uses Brook's PS3/PS4 PCB. The corners are also a bit more rounded than the recent 2017 model.
The latest version of HitBox uses a combination of screws in the bottom plate, and plastic rivets on top panel.
First, you will flip the HitBox upside down to access the bottom plate.
Next open the bottom panel of the hitbox by squeezing the rubber portions of the bottom of the corner screws and gently turning. Use a screwdriver carefully to remove the center buttons.
Much thanks to 801 Mods' Joey Wainwright for the helpful tutorial.
Once the bottom panel is removed, use a needle-nose pliers to carefully remove the quick disconnects attached to each button. Carefully remove each button by gently pushing the tabs on each side of the button inwards, and then downwards to push the button out.
The ten plastic rivets can be removed without damaging the rivets themselves. Using a small punch with a flat head (octagonal shaped) gently push in the middle of the rivet. This will allow the rivet to unlock and be pushed through.
Once artork and plexi are in place, you can reinstall the plastic rivets. Start with the bottom rivet, threading it into each top hole. You may find that after removing the first time the rivet's bottom is stretched outward a bit and may not easily fit into the hole. Gently squeezing the bottom with needle-nose pliers will help
Next, insert the rivet top into the bottom rivet's hole.
Finally, push the top rivet down until you hear a snap. The rivet works by securing the top half to bottom, expanding the bottom rivet's plastic legs to keep everything in place. Should you need to remove the rivet again, you can follow the process above to release them without damage.
