In order to carry out these ps4 life hack, it is important that you pay attention and prepare a series of materials that we will explain below. Let’s start with the tricks!
Homemade trick to protect the joysticks
The first is a homemade trick with balloons for dualshock 4. In this tip I teach you how to protect the joysticks of your ps4 controller, improve its grip, as well as how to raise the joysticks for better precision in your games.
- The first thing we will need is two ballons small in size
- Once we have them, we should cut them roughly in half.
- After doing this, we must take several coins of little value or wooden blocks, which are similar in size to the dualshock 4 joysticks themselves.
- After we have done this, we must stack 3 or 4 coins and stick them with tape so that they are united. We do this step twice to have 2 packs of coins stacked with tape.
- Having done this, we will help ourselves with the two pieces of balloon cut to attach those coins to our joysticks, and thus remain higher. In addition, by doing this we will have solved the problem of the controls deteriorating, since they will also act as protectors of them.
Finally, to improve the grip of our ps4 controller and make it less slippery, we will use another homemade trick for the PS4 controller: it consists of taking two balloons larger than the previous ones, making two cuts in half and then insert these two pieces of balloon into the grips of the dualshock 4. Having done this, we will get a better grip so that in case of having wet hands it will never fall off!
Trick to fix dualshock 4 triggers
Let’s see the second homemade trick for Playstation 4 and Dualshock 4. Next, I’ll show you how to put trigger stops of your dualshock 4 in case they fail or have looseness. The truth is that this tip will be very helpful.
East life hack consists of taking a rubber band. Yes! of those typical erasers that we have at home and that we never know what to do with it. Once we have it, we must surround the triggers of our dualshock 4, passing under the R2 and L2 of our control said rubber, in such a way that it acts as a stop for them. With this we will achieve that in case our triggers are very loose or respond poorly, they adjust better and work more precisely.
