I don't believe these to be actually sanwa parts. They are reproductions for some reason. They are wickedly difficult to remove compared to the original. I don't know why that is but the tolerances on it must be ever so slightly off. They do not come with the logos as show in picture. I removed the inserts and put back into my original gate. The inserts are not molded but 3d printed.
They do however snap in and work. Removing them compared to the original factory gate however is extremely difficult. I don't know where you would actually buy original parts of these.
These are not sold as official sanwa gates, The Sanwa joysticks we sell are original but gates, balls, bat tops are all a 3rd party.
I replaced the square gates with these in my Mortal Kombat Arcade 1up cabinet along with the 4lb springs and could immediately feel the improvement. It went from feeling like a cheap toy to more like precision arcade quality equipment. Now if only it helped me beat the 14 year old in the house ;)
Just what my arcade1up joysticks needed!
Works great, thanks
One plate came completely circle, no octagonal angles at all. Please fix this.
