Phreak Mods Link is a replacement shaft, manufactured from stainless steel, for Sanwa JLF series of joysticks and once fitted to your fight stick will allow you to remove your ball top or bat top handle with ease, without having to go inside the fight stick. This is ideal for those players that are always travelling to tournaments or taking their favourite fight stick round to a friends house and are tired of the handle being in the way when putting their fight stick into a messenger bag. 

The Link is the ideal solution for the casual game players who are looking to save some space in their bag and for travelling tournament players who need to cram as much into their bags as possible. Once the Link is installed, the ease of which you can detach or attach the shaft and handle as and when required is very straight forward and no hassle. 

Each Link comes supplied with a bottom shaft piece, which needs to be installed into the joystick housing, a spring loaded top part and also a hex key, which allows you to tighten the ball top or bat top joystick handle with ease. We also sell a LINK Lanyard for those players who are always on the move and want to keep their favourite joystick handle and Link safe and wear it round their neck! 

Once you have initially installed the Link into your fight stick, you can remove the handle by simply pulling up on the spring loaded top piece. The Link also features a hollow shaft, so is ideal for those customers that want to illuminate their ball top for their project.

Before installing, please note the following information
* If your arcade stick has a dust washer underneath the control panel, please remove this prior to installation as it may have adverse effects on the operation.
* If you are using a custom acrylic dust washer, please note that the thicker ID edge may casue improper operation. To alleviate this issue, a counter-sink of the edge is recommended to avoid binding.
* Although designed to not come off during game play, it is NOT recommended to pick up your arcade stick by the top while using The Link.

What's Included:
* 1 x The Link base shaft
* 1 x The Link quick release section
* 1 x 3mm hex key

Product Features:
* Quick release shaft
* Hollow shaft - Ideal for illuminating ball top
* Stainless steel

    Phreak Mods “The Link” Quick release lever for Sanwa

    Posted by Carl Burrows on 16th May 2020

    Excellent addition to my fightstick for when I need to carry in my backpack, You can easily remove the stick and store it safely without the risk of causing damage. The only little negative I could find would be the “feel” when fitted but I got used to it very quickly. Highly recommend this product, the anodised Colours especially look very nice

    Perfect for travelling and carrying your stick around, especially with the lanyard. Doesn't work with the KDiT Aluminium dustwashers unfortunately.

    Great mod for those travelling to tournaments, looks slick & great for storing your fightstick in ya backpack. I was waiting for the new Phreakmods EX groove link 2 but to be honest I’ve had no issues adapting to this shaft over the standard JLF feel. It’s a great product & you’ll have no regrets making this purchase. In fact I’m going install these in all my Fightsticks now I’m happy with the feel 10/10 from me ;)

    Great product

    Very nice product, well designed and well built. When you get one, you're you're going to want all your sticks to have this mod. Please note, the stainless steel one feels noticeably more heavy than the aluminium version. I do prefer the stainless steel version, simply because it does feel alot more solid. Having said that, nothing wrong with the aluminium version either.

    The Link arrived very quickly once ordered and was everything I expected it to be. If you have the compatible joystick for the link you choose it is just a matter of removing the old shaft and replacing with the new. Very well built little piece of kit and very handy in a build that requires a removable shaft.

    I highly recommend this.
