How to mod your game controller

Mod your controller and take your gaming to the next level. You can easily improve your gaming experience by making simple adjustments to your gear. 

Rubber grips on your well-loved controller falling apart? Sorted. Brand new controller doesn’t feel quite right? Make it your own. Make it grippy, dynamic and responsive. 

Here’s how it’s done: 

Hack your game controller
Roll a ball of Sugru

STEP 1 - OPEN YOUR SUGRU

Cut open one single use pack of Sugru. Roll half of it into a ball. NOTE: Each trigger or thumbstick needs just half a pack of Sugru.

Shape Sugru to mod controller

STEP 2 - STICK & SHAPE IT

Press the ball onto the button then press it so that it's snug to the edges of the button. Continue to gently press it and shape it to create a great custom shape.

STEP 3 - RUB IT

Once you're happy with the shape, rub it gently to make the surface nice and smooth.

Shape Sugru to triggers on controller

STEP 4 - REPEAT

Do the same to all the buttons, triggers and thumbsticks.

Surge turns into rubber

STEP 5 - IT TURNS INTO RUBBER

Actually, now you don't have to do anything at all. Leave the Sugru to cure over night and voila— you have great custom rubber parts on your controller. Game on.
