    I would not recommend the threaded types- these were designed for the snap in variety.

    quick question before i put my fighter together. it may or may not be a stupid question but i figured i'd ask those who already have built theirs-

    how easy is it to get the buttons and top faceplate off after you assemble it? I want to build an enclosure but really want to start jamming buttons asap! i just don't want to have to go through hell to pop the buttons and the top off and then build the enclosure.

    what say you, oh wise ones?

    Pretty easy. The top plate with all the buttons comes off with a little upwards pressure. Rocking the pins out of the clips, slow and steady with controlled pressure does the job.

    Look in this group for a post on removing the buttons from the top plate - if you're forcing anything you're doing it wrong, they should easily pop out with finger pressure when you get the side clips properly disengaged.

    Small question, why wouldn't you recommend the threaded ones, I understand that it's designed for snap in and that you can't guarantee that the threaded stay putt as good but have there been any problem with them?
