DON'T REMOVE YOUR CLEAR SANWA OBSC MORE THAN TWICE FROM A PANEL TABS WILL BREAK!

I just want to give a warning to everyone DON'T REMOVE YOUR CLEARS SANWA'S MORE THAN TWICE FROM A PANEL
I just moved my clears 30mm Sanwa's from one of Arts plexi's very very gentle like and broke like 8 of the push tabs they are way way too weak I think I switched buttons once from a VSHG to plexi replacement TE and now I only have like a couple of buttons with all their tabs. Just a warning to you guys pick a case and don't switch them out leave them in the panel you originally chose!! Thankfully Art does such a great job with his plexi's the buttons still fit fine without the tabs, it may be because the plexi replacement are decently thick but either way better safe than sorry try to limit the amount of cases you put them in

    It is more like "don't remove them or else they break" for me. I was doing some cleaning maintenance on my LE Red Qanba and decide to remove the buttons and they all broke. This, however, gave me an excuse to buy more buttons.

    I have a few snap-ins I've removed from panels at least 8 times. Sadly the OBSC have a tendency to break within two removals, like the thread topic :(

    You have to do them with likes of genital.

    Not surprised, I only deal with Seimitsu PS-14-KNs when dealing with clear buttons but I would imagine the OBSC buttons are close to the clone Mad Catz buttons where the clips snap or get over stressed that there isn't anymore resistance.

    To my knowledge, clear plastic are more fragile than solid plastic. Correct me otherwise.

    Sanwa plastic sucks.

    That's for sure I've bent back tabs on the standard Sanwa buttons in the past but the clear sanwa's no way theres no bend in those babies.
    I have feeling in the future we will see lots of spare translucent Sanwa plungers floating around

    I never installed my OBSC, so I have not experienced the breaking.
    But from looking and holding them, I can feel they will break.

    Kuya_Joe had his break before.
    When he was swapping out.

    The ps 14 k buttons are the clears to get if you like to swap buttons a lot. Or screw ins. The ps 14 k is the most solid button I think.

    I personally like Seimitsu PS-14-K's. They can take sanwa switches as well.

    Ugh. Wish I read this thread before buying a complete set of OBSCs. Tried transplanting some this morning and broke most of them.

    All snap-in buttons are meant to be installed once, just that translucent buttons are a bit more brittle than solid colors.
    also

    Yeah yeah. I don't feel bad resurrecting this thread. I've been popping sanwas for well over a decade and never broke a tab. Feels pretty shitty paying a premium for OBSCs and not having ANY disclaimer anywhere saying the tabs are more brittle than normal.

    Buttons with completely broken tabs and even shaved ridges will still fit snugly in those old Mad Catz SE cases. Might even be the... case... with all Mad Catz cases, but definitely not with Hori.

    Believe me, I paid an even higher premium for those Sanwa OBSF-30RGs and was pretty bummed when I broke them. I thought I'd never be able to use them again, but then I had a light bulb moment and realized they'd still work in my Mad Catz Wii TvC stick.

    Dip the ends of the broken parts in acetone and fuse them back together. They'll still be brittle as fuck but at least you can install them one more time. Shoegoe for extra support helps a good bit, too.

    Is it only the OBSC's that have this problem? The OBSF's definitely don't have this problem.

    It is all snap in buttons that has this issue (all brands too, not just Sanwa), clear buttons has this problem in spades as clear plastics tend to be more brittle.
    Its why for myself personally I stopped using Snap-ins and use screw ins instead.

    RosserRooster had this issue 5 years ago and it's still a issue now.

    tbh I snapped most of the buttons that I took out of my TE2 when I first got that - luckily I've never had to change the clear OBSC's since (though I do have plans to change the artwork soon... =/)
