Mounting a MADCATZ fightpad pcb


#1

Hi guys. I need some suggestions on a how to mount a fight pad pcb onto my inside of my stick. It will be a happstick. All help is greatly appreciated and try and show pics if you can thanks.

There is no one way to mount a PCB into a stick.
You have to take in consideration the PCB, the case (or the space with in it and how its made) and any other parts inside.

All legitimate ways to mount a PCB in a stick :
Wire anchors and zip ties
Screws
Screws with stand offs
PCB feet
Double sided foam tape
Velcro (hook and loop material)
place in a project box and mount the project box

There are other methods of doing so but these has been what I have seen.

just avoid hot gluing the PCB to the bottom of the case if the bottom panel is plexy or acrylic and it does not look that nice

I used 1’’ #4 Screws and screwed my brawlpad pcb into the underside of my table/stick.


#6

Hell I’ve seen just hot glue holding pcb’s in cases…messy but it does the job…


#7

I will hot glue my pcb if I get desperate, but I will stick with the pcb feet. Also, what are 1" #4 screws?

1 inch long #4 screws. The ‘#4’ is the diameter size of the screw.

You can even use the screws that come with the fightpad. Save the monies =)
