Get back the High Scores you deserve!
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.
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.
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 manually 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:
Configuration utility to customize appearance and behaviour of the tos428 components (e.g. colour of the button, finetuning of restrictor angles, requires Windows)

The switchable restrictors are equipped with metal geared servos for enhanced durability.
