Firstly, great customer support.
Really wanted this to be everything it could be & it really very nearly is, if you get a good batch. My order came with one that worked perfectly on the left stick & was loose on the right. The other one was loose on the left & downright sloppy on the right. It didn't keep it from moving hardly at all.
Contacted support & they replaced the whole set at no cost (therefore 4 stars & not 2 or 3). However what holds back the fifth star is that second set still does not have one that completely immobilises my right stick.
After two sets, if both had some movement, I'd think it was a great idea poorly executed, or perhaps I've misunderstood the actual function. However, the left stick is completely locked with protector on.
I believe their is a variance in my deck's joysticks & housing dimensions. As unlikely as that might seem, it's the only thing I can think of.
The problem with the first set is that one had the magnets not recessed enough, so it was closed, but not holding the joystick. The second set is very nearly there, but still has some movement on the right stick with either protector placed. Not a deal breaker with second set, but it does hold back a star.
THE ITEM WORKS GREAT, AS DESCRIBED
It's exactly what it says it is and it works.
Fits perfectly! I really love them.
