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.

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 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:

tos428config

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

Ordered by mistake then broken board.

Web site wasn't clear enough that this was an extension and not a full kit. So I ordered the kit, and when it arrived the USB port fell off the circuit board.
I'll probably end up just making my own.

Next Level!

This has taken my ALU cabinet to the next level. It’s such a difference playing any 4 or 8 way game. Look no further. Just buy it!

Works great but needs fine tuning!

I really love the 4-way 8-way joystick from GRS. Great quality! I drill a hole in the top of the deck for the push button and was a little worried in cracking the Acrylic protector but I was successful in drilling a hole in the deck without cracking it. Used a Forstner bit1 1/8 you just have to go slow and easy. I still have to load the software to adjust the restrictor because they are not straight. When installing the solenoid restrictor it stands tall so you have to make sure that they clear the bottom cover but on the ALU it fine and the Arcade 1Up is fine. The IIRcade it will not clear the bottom cover. The only thing I would change or add would be identifying the 4 way and 8way on the button even tho the colors tell you what it is in 4way or 8way. I order printed numbers to stick on the buttons to identified 4 way and 8way And maybe a little easier explaining and instructions in guiding you in the loading software for fine tuning the restrictor.
