Square restriction on ls-32?


#1

Trying to switch out the JLF for a ls-32 in my Q4, but i can’t seem to figure out how to make it

square restricted. The base restrictor plate is white and round restricted instead of the light blue square restricted ones I have seen online and I can’t seem to find a site that sells that square plate. I read that all siemitsu sticks can be square restricted right out of the box, but I don’t see how that is possible with what came with the stick.
any help would be much appreciated.
(also, when i remove all the plates, it is still has circular restriction and when I put on the blue thing it makes it either 2-way or 4-way. the middle doesn’t seem to do anything at all.)
Thanks.

your main guide is round, get a square main guide (its light blue in color)

The sub guide is mainly for making the stick 2-way or 4-way.

LS-32’s should come with square guide stock, was this the default ls-32 from a Q4? strange that they opt to put circle guide hehe

I’m trying to figure out where to get it. I bought the ls-32 from videogamesnewyork and it came with the circular plate for whatever reason

Send them a message and tell them they sent you one with the wrong gate. They should correct it, at no cost to you, especially since it isn’t listed as having a circular gate when the default is square.

that’s a fine suggestion. i’ll tell you guys how this ends. cause I need that damn gate.
thanks.

Actually this is the version of LS-32 square gate you will find nowadays, Seimitsu changed the gates a little.

That would suck to import a $1 dollar part from japan. Got to wait till tomorrow to see how NewYork decides to handle this, cause I agree with moon in how this is pretty much on them


#8

Do try to keep the round gate as a spare part. Seimitsu has discontinued the round gate and that is currently hard to find.


#9

Seimitsu dropped the round LS-32 gate? That’s wild.


#10

So yea, newyork decided they would send me a square gate for free using priority mail which is great. They have no idea how that round gate got on there in the first place, because even they said all 32s come with a square by default. So it all worked out in he end and I can’t wait to rock the new stick.might even do that ls-36 mod someday.

The LS-32-02 is supposed to come with a flat mounting plate… or at least that’s how its listed on PA:

Too bad they are out of stock… I prefer the flat mounting plates than the S shape.


#12

Do they sell those square gates separately for people who had LS-32’s beforehand?


#13

Akishop does.


#14

I’ve gotten a few people asking to buy the circular gate but unfortunately it’s not for sale… at least for the time being. I’m going to put it in a different stick that isn’t primarily used for fighting games and if I do sell it I, it will go to hibachi since he asked first.
Didn’t realize this gate was that rare.


#15

It was not rare…but now it is, since Seimitsu has discontinued recently.
