Single Handed PlayStation 4 Controllers


My PlayStation 4 single handed controllers were based on the Hori Mini Wired PS4 gamepad. This item has been discontinued and sourcing new or used ones has become fairly difficult and expensive. For this reason I am no longer offering single-handed PlayStation controllers at this time. Sorry for the inconvenience, consider a Xbox model here:

For existing customers/owner of this model:


  • One year of free repairs, just pay return shipping cost.
  • Reasonable repair rates after one year, typically $40-50 plus return shipping cost.
  • If the controller’s functionality doesn’t work for your situation you can return it for full refund (less your return shipping cost)

This is the newly designed 2020 model of the PlayStation 4 Single Handed Controller which has the following new features:

  • New and improved lower analog stick that doubles as an additional handle grip. Includes the secondary trigger.
  • Uses the Hori Mini USB wired controller. Plug it into your PS4 and tap the PlayStation button to connect it. Also works on PCs.
  • All controllers are hand-built using 3D printed parts by Ben Heck himself on a per-order basis.


How The Single-Handed PS4 Controller Works

The theory of operation is to move all controls to one side of the controller so a person who only had the use of one hand can access everything.

The secondary analog trigger has been moved to the lower rear of the controller so it can be actuated with your middle finger.

The secondary analog has been moved to the bottom of the unit and enclosed inside a protective 3D printer shaft, which also doubles as an extended palm grip. For the left-handed controllers it is the right analog that is moved to the bottom (camera movement / aiming). For the right-handed controllers it is the left analog that has been moved (character movement).

To move the secondary analog you actually tilt the controller itself, which in turn moves the analog stick using your leg as a pivot point.

Right handed version of the controller
The L1 and L3 (when you click in the left analog) buttons are moved to the front right of the controller
The left analog stick is moved to the bottom of the unit and the L2 trigger is built into it

Left Handed Controller Photos

Main difference between the left and right controllers is how the square circle triangle and cross buttons are handled. For the left-handed version those buttons have been duplicated to be in range of your left hand thumb
