  • Product Description

    The Seimitsu PS-14-K snap-in pushbutton closely rivals the ease of installation and tournament quality use of the hugely popular Sanwa OBSF-30 pushbutton.  These are especially easy to install into Fightstick models with a thin metal faceplate. Available in several translucent colors, artwork can also be inserted under the cap of the plunger. and are sought after for their increased customization ability with joystick graphics and LED mods. Seimitsu buttons offer a similar high-quality and responsiveness as a Sanwa, but a slightly different feel and sound as it uses the  Seimitsu PS-14-D Button Micro Switch

    Bundle with MM9-3 High Tension Button Spring and Save

    By default, Seimitsu PS-14-D microswitch requires 0.2 LBF (pounds force) to each button. 

    The MM9-3-25N adds an extra .08 LBF (pounds force), for a total of 0.28 LBF.  The result is a light, but firm button input requirement that accelerates its the button cap's return to neutral. 

    The MM9-3-50N adds an extra .16 LBF (pounds force), for a total of 0.34 LBF, resulting in a much firmer button input requirement that quickly pushes the button cap's to neutral position, ready for the next press.

    This is desirable to some who appreciate using more deliberate input force and a bit less sensitivity than Sanwa's SW-68 offers. Now, you can save 25 cents off the regular price of the MM9-3 series spring when you choose one of the high tension springs from the options list.

    24 vs 30mm

    When processing orders, a frequent mistake we found among new players is choosing the wrong size for action buttons, such as punch and kick.

    Within the fighting game genre, Japanese arcade buttons commonly consist of two diameter sizes: 24 millimeter and 30 milllimeter (mm). In most configurations, 30mm represents your action button.  These are front facing, appearing most prominent on your Fightstick control panel.  Option button, such as "Start", "Select", or more recently "Option", "Touch", or "Share" are usually 24mm.

    UPDATE: Owners of Neo Geo AES Joysticks will need 24mm pushbuttons instead of 30mm (Thanks SRK's DEZALB)

    Below is a visual representation of a common Fightstick control panel.  Throughout this article, we will mark 24mm in green, and 30mm in Orange.

    Checking the Proper Size

    button-30mm.pngAnother way that players can misinterpret the pushbutton size is by measuring the pushbutton plunger.  Have a look at the diagram at right.

    The plunger - the part that you press down to represent an input - is 25mm or a bit smaller in most 30mm pushbuttons.  Often this leads to the conclusion that one needs a 24mm button and not 30mm.

    Similarly measuring the button rim can lead to confusion, as it is intentionally larger than the button hole it is placed in.  You don't want to use these measurements.  Instead, review the button housing diameter, or the hole the button will be placed in.  You can do this with a caliper - a digital caliper is often quite helpful for this and other arcade-related projects.

    Control Panel Configuration

    Most Fightsticks from MadCatz, Hori, Qanba, and similar will use these two sizes.  How the buttons are used will depend on the model joystick that you own. Over time, we'll provide example configurations for specific popular Fightstick models and arcade cabinets using the color key for 24mm (green) and 30mm (orange).  We'll also expand the key for future models if another size is introduced, and we offer for sale.

    1. Plus ultra customizable

      These are dope buttons I usually use sanwa but I’m liking these more. Im thinking of ordering the screw button version next. on Sep 7th 2020

    2. Yellowed

      GREAT AMAZING buttons. I purchased 8 of these to put in my stick years ago. I've never had any issue with them at all. I've been playing regularly for years and they never broke.

      My only thing I have to comment is that since they are a clear plastic, over the years, they've began to yellow. When I first got them, they were a nice clear with a blue shine when sun hit them. Over these years, they're now yellow when sun hits them. It wouldn't be too bad except I added a clear ball-top recently and that one still shines blue and the buttons now look bad next to it.

      Point being, clear buttons are amazing and look very nice. These work just as expected. I would say semi vs sanwa, semi buttons are more rounded and as such, you have less sharp edges and theyre also more clicky vs sanwas mushy. Both great. Only comment is that these buttons are going yellow over time and if you're down for that, go for it. I'm going to be replacing my yellowed ones soon for no other reason than cosmetic.
