Unfortunately, many aftermarket Game Boy Color D-pads have a flatter rocker than the OEM buttons. As a result, the D-pad will sit slightly lower than expected, and allows for the input of opposite directions simultaneously. 

This simple 3D-printed riser has been designed to correct that, and restore the genuine feel to your aftermarket buttons. Designed to sit between the silicone and the PCB, the simple, no adhesive install will make correcting problematic D-pads quick and easy! 

Features

Does what it’s supposed to do

It’s kinda subtle as far as improvement goes but there is an improvement. It’s hard when we are talking millimeter’s as far as making the D-Pad function perfectly. So I do wish it was ever so slightly higher or raised as I think it could be better if they just got the measurements a bit more raised but for now this will do as I no longer press inputs simultaneously to register the wrong directions.

So far they have fixed my DMG and my retroflag SNES usb controller, they fit in many things that aren't the CGB.
They may need a bit of sanding but it's way better than tape or plastic packaging & glue.

Works like Magic

Wasn't entirely convinced this was a real solution until I placed it inside and immediately saw a difference. No longer locking myself in place moving diagonally in Link's Awakening. Absolute necessity for aftermarket pads giving you trouble.
