Need more room in your arcade cabinet than a long stem pushbutton can provide? Fancying the nostalgic feel of American-style Street Fighter cabinet pushbuttons in your custom Fightstick (that can accomodate .187" microswitches) or iCade? Industrias Lorenzo may provide a solution for each with the PSL-H Concave Short Stem Pushbutton.
The American/EU styled, concave pushbutton features a short stem body for metal and up to 3/4" wood control panels.
Yes, the spring definitely makes this button more difficult to push, my suggestion is to get cherry switches, take the spring out completely and get ready to kiss me!mister_non

Good but without its flaws.
The IL short stem pushbutton is meant to be use by those who want IL buttons for their arcade sticks (mostly Japanese) that are too small for the regular long stem buttons. While this button does a good job of providing the quality that IL is known for, I couldn't help but notice how much more tense the button push is compared to a long stem. After some inspection, I discovered that the spring used for the short stem is the same sized spring used in a long stem, which, given how it has to fit in the smaller casing, gives the short stem a bit more tension that the standard long stems. Its not too bad, but it can be noticeable to those who've used long stem buttons, and it might cause a bit more fatigue than usual. I suggest comparing this short stem button with a long stem for yourself before getting yourself a whole set.Gil E.

Fits ion iCade Button Mounting Holes
This button fits into the mounting holes in the ion iCade "cabinet". The spring action is improved and, when combined with upgraded switches, respond far better than the default buttons. Solid blue color. Recommended.mPwalters
