Didn't know where to put the grips when I wasn't using them soooo, maybe this is an acceptable solution?

Love the one I just printed, however, I would like to suggest adding a very slight incline to the bottom of the slides. That way they can be printed without excessive support, or filament extruded into the air, like mine did (I didn't notice it needed support, works well though, just some nasty bits)

This is great and works just fine!

Can you Insert the Cut Off to use the Lock of the parts?

I tried to avoid the grips locking on it by making a pretty snug fit. I did try one version with that but it was difficult to unlock it which scared me a bit, didn't want to be responsible for anyone breaking their grips.

Just printed mine, works great. As for the suggested lock, I think I've got a very quick and easy solution: Move the rails up (to the tip) by about 0.75mm. If you hold the Joy-Con Grip next to the rail, you'll notice that there's about 1cm space with no rail on the top end and the two pegs for the locking mechanism are around 0.75mm into the rail. While I haven't tried it, this looks a lot like simply moving the rail would make the locking mechanism work, without one having to fear that it somehow locks forever or breaks (because there's no rail to dig into). Instead the pegs would keep the rail from sliding out..

Printed and works great, even at .35 layer height with no supports. The lock tabs secure the grips and the Switch logo on the bottom is a nice touch!

How tight the holder is?

So far people have been reporting that it's a good fit, tight enough to hold, but loose to slip off with out any complications. Though it all depends on the filament you use I suppose.

Such a simple-yet-brilliant fix. Why Nintendo didn't bother making something similar in the first place is beyond me.

My assumption is they want you to pay for another set after you loose one. I still want to design something that consolidates things a little further, maybe something that clicks the grips on to the controller.

i want to see more user made acseries like this for the switch thanks i love this
