Here’s how to remove the button topper for all the adaptive buttons:

  1. Secure the base of your adaptive button and place a hand on the button topper.

  2. Twist the button topper counterclockwise to loosen it from the base. You’ve loosened it once you can’t turn it anymore.

  3. Remove the button topper from the button. One way to do this is to turn the button upside down.

  4. Place the replacement button topper on the top of the adaptive button so the location markers match the base.

  5. Twist the topper clockwise to secure it in place.

  2. Twist the joystick counterclockwise to loosen it from the base.

  3. Continue twisting it until you can pull the joystick away from the base.

  4. Once you’ve removed the original joystick button topper, put the replacement joystick on the adaptive button.

  5. Twist it clockwise to secure it in place.
