Please note: You do not need to purchase a separate restrictor gate for this insert. It is designed to work with your Sanwa JLF's existing GT-8F gate. It is not compatible with the Sanwa JLF-TPRG-8AYT-SK Silent Microswitch Joystick, as the restrictor plate does not allow swapping an insert. You may try purchasing a GT-8F plate for that model however.
The Sanwa GT Y Octagonal Restrictor Plate is one of our most popular products. Players love the smoother, circular motions that this product offered. The actual clear plastic gates themselves, however, are already installed in most Sanwa JLF series joysticks as the Sanwa GT-8F 4/8-Way Restrictor Plate.
Every Sanwa JLF-series Joystick, including Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT Joystick or Sanwa JLF-TP-8Y-SK Joystick (No Plate Installed) comes with the Sanwa GT-8F restrictor plate. This clear plastic plate houses a square-shaped insert that allows for up, down, left, right and diagonal movement. While effective, it doesn't feel as natural when attempting to perform quarter-circle, half-circle, or full-circle (360-degree) motions. These motions are common in most fighting games, which a square gate cannot reproduce easily. The translucent yellow insert, which contains the octagonal guide, is the most important part. If you already own the GT-8F restrictor plate on every Sanwa JLF, buying another just for the GT-Y insert seems like a wasted purchase.
The clear GT-Y insert we offer is molded with the exact same specifications as the yellow insert available in the official Sanwa GT-Y, and works just as well. Hadoken, Shoryuken and Spinning Piledriver attacks are fluid and easy to perform.
A fantastic deal!
Now, with Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT Joystick or Sanwa JLF-TP-8Y-SK Joystick (No Plate Installed) purchase, you can option bundle the GT-Y insert for just 45 cents!
