View Full Version : I need help with my slippery knob....

Specifically my hat-switch.

Is there anything out there I can apply to it to give it a rough and grippy finish ? Some kind of 'sandpaper in a bottle' is what i'm after. I've no idea if such stuff exists though.

You could glue a piece of material or rubber on it, or sand it.

One thing that works,dependant on the size of the hat,is to glue on a rubber thimble then trim off the excess when the glue is well dry.
I got the one I had on my Saitek Cyborg from a stationary supply shop.By thimble I hope you understand I mean the kind a bank clerk would use to count a stack on bills.

Ahhhh....mines a Cyborg too. Will look into it, thanks.

You could, of course, cut your thumb off and replace it with a rubber prosthetic which will give more grip.

Bit drastic, I know, but some women have been cutting their little toes off to fit into shoes - not much different, eh? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Maybe one of those small round paper-stickies - or you could open the window so you don't sweat too much. I use a towel to dry my hands now & then.

Instead of gluing stuff on it U might want to try Partyballoons for kids ( very small balloons)
and cut the uppermost tip off a few and strap them on the button, kind of like a c*nd*m.

Works for me anyway. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

You could try a rubber thimble as well!

That's so crazy, it just might work.

Wash your hands.

Try mixing sand into paint or glue and paint it on.

Use TrackIR Wink

Meh...tried it.

Sore neck, dizziness and to the outside observer it looked like I was having a stroke.

If Trackir is set up correctly you need minimal head movements.
I would not play anything without it anymore.
