Joysticks of any video game controller take a great beating with use, over time the essential joystick becomes slippery and difficult to maneuver. With this instructable I will show you how to restore grip to the joystick for about $3.00... This is my first instructable so if I most any points feel free to let me know. Thanks, Anthony

All you need is gorilla glue and dremel sanding discs, you can buy them at any hardware store... Product is seen sanding disc No. 411

Step 2: Apply Gorilla Glue

Apply gorilla glue to the concave in your joystick, fill until the glue is almost level with the outer rim of the joystick.

Step 3: Place Sanding Discs

Allow the glue to settle than gently place the pads to the saturated area... Make sure the disc is centered! : D

Step 4: Allow to Dry and Game On!

Give the glue a good 10 minutes to dry, when dried properly the grips will never move or peel I really love this replacement and think its even better than the original grip... Happy gaming!

easier way is to put gorilla glue on it and then your thumb, that gives you even more grip
