as you know the original 3DS models had a little problem. the bumpers nintendo had implemented weren't big enough and so the topscreen had contact with the edge of the bottom screen which led to "scratches".
a while ago i made myself some bumpers which are big enough. i used those things people put under furniture so the floor doesnt scratch from moving furniture. it works great. the little "scratch" i had on the right of my topscreen is gone. so it wasn't really a scratch.

this is how my bumpers look. one on each side of the topscreen.

i think it looks kinda good for some selfmade bumpers. right? RIGHT?!
(yes those are some yummy chips i will eat later haha)

Nice idea! I just leave a folded terrycloth in there, and that has taken care of the problem; plus I always have a way to clean off the screens with me. So it's a win-win! :)

I used the typical xbox 360 bumpers from an old, rrod'd xbox.

Outstanding Morph Marron didn't fit. Woof.

@Gioku: I do the same, but have seen the markings still appear where the Circle Pad rubs and in the two areas that would normally be scratched. Does the same happen to you?

I put duct tape in the upper corners of my screen, which works really well, but I may need to think of getting something that looks better.

@SomeBitTripFan: Yeah, that does happen; but because it's a terrycloth I can just wipe it off. So it's no issue. :)

@mystman12: I almost completely broke my DS hinge, duct tape fixed it. Wear your duct tape repairs proudly.

@Gioku: I'm insanely paranoid about keeping my stuff in top condition. It's good to know my method is safe.

@SomeBitTripFan: Since there's nothing 'sharp' hitting the screen, it's virtually impossible for it to get scratched with the cloth in there. The amount of pressure required to do so would probably do some major damage to the system! So I think we're safe. :)

I'm angry that I got a Fire Emblem 3DS, the top screen is bad because of that. I now put a terrycloth between the system when closing it.

Well, I just realized my top screen has some scratches on it, (hardly noticeable with the screen on) and my warranty expired in October. MOAR DUCT TAPE!!!
