  • Product Description

    Quarter-circle, half-circle and full 360 motions no longer take effort or feel unnatural after installing a Sanwa GT-Y Octagonal Restrictor Gate into your TE or Hori/Sanwa JLF setup.  A full 8 corners allows for smoother and more responsive motions for fireball, dragon-uppercut and spinning piledriver attacks.  Those investing their time in wrestling chars such as Zangief or Shoto chars such as Ryu, Ken, Sakura, Akuma, and Dan(!), deserve to swap out their existing 4-way gate for this one.

    The Sanwa GT-Y Octagonal Restrictor Gate is compatible with the Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT Joystick and Sanwa JLF-TP-8Y-SK Joystick (No Plate Installed).

    1. Great for arcade fighters

      I bought a pair of these for my Arcade1Up Street Fighter II cabinet that I had installed Sanwa JLF joysticks in (with 4lb springs). Though the default JLF offer both 8 and 4 way compatibility by switching the rotation of the gate, it's not ideal. The default 8-way features four locking positions, basically each of the corners, so in fighting games where you need to hit specifics like down, up, left and right, it's really easy to trigger a corner movement instead.
      Transition to having the octagonal gate installed there are now eight, what I call "locking positions" where the joystick can easily rest not only in the corners but up, down, left, and right as well. For fighting games it just makes the experience so much better, while other arcade games (Pac-Man) may only need four way or eight way without this gate. If you have a Sanwa JLF that you intend to play fighting games with, do yourself a favor and buy this restrictor gate.

    2. Great for a noob like me

      So I am new to the competitive aspect of Fighting games and I wanted my inputs to be as precise as possible, so if you want to know exactly where your input is on a stick than get an octo gate, most use square and hey if that works for you cool but for me, those extra gates make it the only way to go for me. on Sep 3rd 2019

    3. Improved my game!

      Recently threw two of these restrictor plates and two 4lb springs in my Arcade 1up MK2 cabinet and the feel of the clone sanwa sticks is night and day. Huge improvement. Smoother motion and more control. I can now pull off spacial moves with no effort. I highly recommend these restrictor plates. on Aug 24th 2019

    4. Great Mod

      This is a great mod for someone who wants a more natural/smooth motion input than the stock 4 way restrictor. I can now do circular motions easier without banging into the verticle sidewalls of a 4 way restrictor. on May 21st 2019

    5. Huuuuge difference

      Made a massive change to my accuracy for inputs on DBFZ! Highly recommend on Apr 4th 2019
