Opening the Tournament Edition "S" stick

I just got mine today and I’m looking to swap out the stock buttons with the Sanwa buttons I purchased for my SE stick (they just feel better to me.) Do you still open these up from the top like the old TE sticks? I don’t have the tool necessary to do so, so I just wanted to ask before I run out and buy it or start unscrewing from the bottom.

open it from the top just like the others.

Thanks man. I just moved and I dont have access to my dad’s tools anymore so it looks like I’m gonna have to run out and get some.

You know your TE “S” already has sanwa buttons right?
