Turning buttons/microswitches 90 degrees when installing new buttons

[LEFT]I remember once at a tournament I tried out Henry Cen’s stick and the buttons felt amazing and quite springy. I asked him if they were new and he said they weren’t–they felt so good because he turned the buttons while putting them in.

I asked if he could do that to my buttons, and he said he couldn’t, it has to be done when the buttons are new because the microswitches…something or other.

That’s all I know about this because I’m not a stick techie. Is this practice common among stickbuilders? Could someone detail how it works for me?
