The Kowal™ flat plate converter is a multi-purpose joystick mounting plate, that is compatible with many joysticks on the market and provides a versatile solution for mounting your arcade joystick into your arcade control panel.
One of the most common issues a customer can have when it comes to mounting a joystick is trying to find the correct mounting plate that has suitable mounting holes that will fit an existing control panel. The Kowal™ flat plate converter overcomes some of these issues by having numerous holes pre-drilled on the mounting plate, so is compatible with many American, European and Japanese joysticks.
Whilst the Kowal™ flat plate converter has been designed to be compatible with many existing joysticks, it will not be suitable for 100% of joysticks. Please consider the points below to check whether this product will be suitable for your requirements.
* Your arcade control panel must be compatible with the Kowal™ plate, rather than the joystick.
* The joystick you wish to install must fit the enclosure you intend to mount it into.
* Your control panel has to be the correct thickness for the joystick height.
* Versatile solution for mounting various joysticks.
* Drilled holes feature unique milled edges, so conical head screws will install flush.
* Compatible with various American, European and Japanese joysticks.
* Multiple mounting holes pre-drilled.
Solid and very good design. It has perfectly adjusted with my LS-36 stick and Mayflash F-101 box.
This plate will allow you to mount a korean stick to any japanese mount fightstick.
The quality could have been better as it has very rough edges which could easily scratch a surface.
Also the japanese mount holes are concave/drilled which may cause an issue if you don't have large enough washers for the screws, especially if you want to attach a ground wire on it as well.
If you're using this for a korean stick, don't forget to replace the original mounting plate and NOT screw it on top to avoid changing the stick height.
Overall it's a great product that will allow you to mount virtually any stick to any stick mount.
I ordered a trick joystick and didn't realize it did not match my cabinet mounting holes. This plate fixed all that. Yes, I could have manufactured my own adapter plate, but it would have taken hours and as inexpensive as this plate is, it would have not been cost effective. This is a bolt on fix that even comes with its own screws. I just popped off the oem plate and bolted this on. Now it fits my original cabinet holes without having to re-drill and mess up the clean control panel.
