How Thick of a Control Panel Can a Snap-in Button Fit Into?

Q: When building a fight stick, what's the required thickness for the control panel for button and joystick installation? 

A: The thickest panel a snap-in button can accomodate is 1/8 inch (3.175mm) thick. Anything thicker than that will require screw-in buttons.

Replacement commercial stick panels can be found online. Custom wood/MDF panel steps can be found at
