Our controllers have been described as the most ergonomic custom PS4 controller out there. See for yourself with this DIY kit.
If you are not good with small, fiddly parts then we do not recommend buying the mod kit. Please inspect the tutorial videos carefully before making your decision.
Please choose the correct mod kit for your controllers. There are different version PS4 controllers and all mod kits are different. Pick carefully and ask anything you are not sure of before purchase.
Simply insert the mod kit into your own ps4 controller and your good-to-go. Buttons will have been configured by us using your specifications above. The MOD kit will be sent to you pre-soldered so all you have to do is place it into your controller. The most complicated thing you will have to do is drill 2 holes into your controller shell.
NO Gluing. NO soldering. NO Wiring.
Tools You Will Need:
Drill with 5 or 5.5mm drill bit (to drill the holes for the ClickSticks)
PH00 Screwdriver (to unscrew the controller)
Scalpel (to clean any rough edges from drilling. also good to adjust hole size after drilling)
Hex key 0.9mm (to tighten ClickSticks)
Buy the correct version mod kit. Check the generation of your controller carefully before buying mod kit.
Construct the mod kit. We do all the hard part so this is easy.
Dismantle your controller and drill the back shell with 2 holes for ClickSticks.
It would also help cutting away the following part of the rear shell to help with fitting the mod kit nicely:
Install the mod kit into the controller. Use the tutorial videos as a guide.
Screw your controller back together. (If the holes need adjusting, its best to use a scalpel once the controller is closed.) All done.
Take off the back shell from your controller and compare your motherboard with the following circuit boards. This is the most accurate way of identifying your generation controller.
Cutting this area from the back of the controller will also help:
If you are still struggling with identifying your controller then please get in touch and we can help. We are available on Facebook or Email. We will need a picture of your motherboard inside the controller.[messenger url=”https://www.facebook.com/thecontrollerpeople/” hide_cover=”false” lagre_header=”false” button=”Send Us A Message On Facebook”]

Which Generation Controller Do I Have?
Please check the sticker which is at the back of your controller. There should be a serial number on the left side which will correspond with the above list, under “Which Generation Controller Do I Have?”.
If your Sticker has worn and the serial number is not clear then the best thing to do would be to open your controller and check the circuit board inside. Compare the circuit board inside with the pictures above. This will ensure you have the correct version.
What buttons will the ClickSticks be mapped to?
There is no default configuration for the MOD kits.
You can pick any two buttons from the following choices:
TRIANGLE, X, SQUARE, O,
UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT,
R1 R2 L1 L2
L3 and R3 cannot be mapped to unless you solder the points pins yourself which are on the controller. We can advise if needed.
You can also have remappable ClickSticks which allow you to change the button layout of your ClickSticks at any time. Remappable Clicksticks can only be remapped to the following buttons: TRIANGLE, X, SQUARE, O,
UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT.
How do i remap my ClickSticks?
If you have bought remappable ClickSticks then remapping is very easy. Just hold down the desired button along with the ClickStick for roughly 10 – 12 seconds. As long as you hold both, together for the time period then you should see a little flash in the lightbar to indicate the change.
So for example, to change the ClickStick to TRIANGLE:
PS: You cannot have 2 of the same button remapped to the ClickSticks.
What does the MOD Kit contain?
All MOD kits come with either Stud or Trigger ClickSticks. The ClickSticks are custom built to your own individual specification using the options above. We also include stickers for the back of your controller.
Which tools will i need?
Philips Screwdriver: PH00
Drill with 5mm drill piece
Prying Tool: handy to open the controller.
Are the kits hard to install?
The MOD kits are generally pretty easy to install. The kits are designed to clip straight into the controller without the need for any gluing or soldering.
The only manual work needed is to drill the holes onto your back shell. This is where the sticks will protrude for you to add on the ClickSticks. We recommend using a 5mm drill piece with the below measurements acting as a guide:
If you are not good with small, fiddly parts then we wouldn’t recommend buying the mod kit. Please inspect the tutorial videos carefully before making your decision.
99% of the time the reason for this is that you have not properly aligned the mod kit in the controller. The best way to test the mod kit is connected properly is to test its working before closing the controller back up.
To do this, connect the mod kit in place as normal but keep the controller open. Make sure the back shell ribbon cable connected to the motherboard and connect the controller to a PC with a USB.
Then, open up “Set up USB game controllers” utility in Windows PC:
1) Click Start or open the Window Start Screen.
2 )In the Run or Search text field or at the Windows Start Screen, type “game controller” and click the Set up USB game controllers option.
3) Click the name of the joystick or gamepad you want to test and click the Properties button or link.
Once the software is on, you will be able to manually adjust the mod kit position while also testing all of the buttons.
When you see that all buttons work as normal, screw the motherboard back together and close the controller up. Make sure the circuit board does not move out of position when closing the controller back up.
