Thanks to modern technology, today’s multi-cade cabinets can provide the comfort of having many of our favourite childhood games combined within one unit. This includes games that were originally programmed for and equipped with either specific 4-way or 8-way joysticks. Playing both types of games on the same cabinet with just one type of joystick can turn into a quite frustrating game experience.

Based on sophisticated engineering and modern technology the GRS TOS Switchable 4-to-8-Way Restrictor provides an easy-to-use solution that allows switching between joystick versions on the fly, just between different games.

Optimal Compatibility

The GRS TOS Switchable 4-to-8-Way Restrictor is compatible with a huge variety of Sanwa-style joysticks. Just use the joystick of your choice.

It works with many Arcade1Up, AtGames, and iiRcade cabinets.

Multifunctional Design

The lighted 2-in-1 Arcade button with coloured status indication reduces the consumption of valuable control panel space and keeps you informed at any time about the actual setting.

Adapt the lighted 2-in-1 Arcade button to any colour that fits best with your cabinets' design and tastes.

The permanent dual-mode allows simultaneous usage of software automation and manual control. Enjoy the comfort of automated restrictor setting while having the option to manual override whenever you want (note: automation only on supported platforms).

The controller board supports up to 4 joysticks per cabinet.

Use an optional second 2-in-1 button as a USB-keyboard key to take control of your emulation and frontend software.

Super Easy to Install

The ease of use already starts with the plug-and-play installation. Just replace the existing static restrictor plates of your cabinet's joysticks with our motorized restrictors, add the 2-in-1 arcade button to your control panel and connect everything with the provided microcontroller board and you are ready to go.

Comprehensive Software support

While the basic functionality does not require the installation of any additional software, there are several optional software packages available that support advanced features. Those are:

tos428config

Configuration utility to customize appearance and behaviour of the tos428 components (e.g. colour of the button, finetuning of restrictor angles, requires Windows)

Wow, better than advertised!

This system was even easier to install than expected. Was so easy to install and use I ordered another set for another arcade, an aatGames Gamer Pro. My first set was for an AtGames Legend Ult8mate 1.0. R4c9mmend to anyone with a compatible arcade.

Had to modify cabinet as the kit is a little long. I used a 1 inch bit to make the wholes for the gates. Also, I needed to use the software to make adjustments. But all in all took about an hour and a half to install. Well worth it. I also installed a set in my cocktail cabinet that uses the new pandora box for cocktail cabs. That set needed no adjustments. I love this product, I am now a master in Donut Dodo! A must for any multi-cab.

GRS Switchable 4-to-8-Way

Very happy; it makes the 4way and 8way games playable on the same cabinet. Great customer service. I had a minor issue, and they took care of me immediately; what's not to like? Thank you!
