Is it possible to use a jlf without a gate?


#1

hi all very recently the gate on my joystick broke so im just wondering whether i can use it without a gate while i wait for a replacement to arrive or if im going to have to just wait for my replacement


#2

How did you break a JLF gate?

You must have noticed by now that the gate is needed to secure the microswitch pcb in place.


#3

well to be specific part that holds the insert in snapped when i dropped it


#4

Picture.


#5

i havent got a working camera currently i guess a better question would be is it possible to use the joystick without a gate insert while still keeping the gate itself on to hold it all together


#6

Yes.


#7

and theres no risk of causing any damage to the stick by doing this?


#8

Show me a pic and I’ll be able to confirm that for you.


#9

as i said before i do not currently have a working camera the question is just if someone were to remove the gate insert would it be possible to use the stick without causing damage


#10

As I said before you can’t expect anyone to give you a confident diagnosis without seeing a pic as your description of the damage is too poor to form a judgement.

What is this “gate insert” you keep mentioning? Without a proper, technical description of the damage or pictures then this thread is meaningless.

when i say gate insert im referring to that


#12

Still not enough information. Is it the circle insert that is broken or the parts of the gate that hold it in place?


#13

the parts that hold in place


#14

Wouldn’t recommend it, dude.


#15
