TM grip retention brace

As all FCC (and I assume RSSB users too) are aware, the way Thrustmaster are interfacing the grip to the base will cause, over time, and increasing amount of play in the grip. To solve this some solutions have been suggested by the community, from 3d printed braces to just sticking LEGO blocks between the grip and the locking screw. However, all those solutions work for the stock straight grip. However, If you have a 13 degrees adapter for the stick.. good luck with those.

So I’ve decided to try and model something for myself. I went with a press fit, no screws or any other fancy hardware.

it fits snugly under grip and reduces the play considerably. it does not eliminate play completely, but does an awesome job .

And to top it all off… I’ve uploaded the files to Thingiverse, so if you want it just grab it 🙂 please note that it’s licensed under CC-Share alike. 

And for the giggles, a short before and after clip.. abd yes, the brace literally installs in 3 seconds.
