Pure genius. Well done.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

Get a Temper Glass screen that is more smarter and better protection then the cloth could do. It is a myth the Dock has yet to be proven scratches the screen. It's the users not learning how to dock their Dock.

I will never understand this.

What the heck are you people doing that the dock scratches your Switch?

Throwing it in there? Trying to use the Force to mind-place it?

Maybe just place it in carefully and you'll avoid scratches like the rest of us normal people.

I prefer putting the dock under a large Plinko board and dropping the tablet down that way. It's a pure rush to see if you chose the right path!!!

I got a "high end" screen protector made of treated flexible glass for about 20 bucks that solved that issue. It's a harder material than what would scratch the screen in the dock, thus it can't be scratched by the dock.

I too wonder what people are doing if the dock is scratching their Switch.

Launch month switch with still the same tempered glass protector with no scratches so far. Maybe I’m lucky but a screen protector is a better solution

I am honestly to scared to let my wife touch the Switch for fear of her dropping it or scratching it (by her own admission she is clumsy) so as the man of the house I handle all Switch docking responsibilities.

Tempered glass screen protector.

Easier, and more bang for your buck since you'll be protecting the screen from ALL types of scratches any where you go, dock included.

I hope I won't jinx myself by saying this, but my kid has been docking and undocking the Switch since the day the system launched, with only a basic plastic screen protector, and nothing has ever happened to it. She was eight years old when she started playing on it, and she's not a particularly careful kid.

I have no idea what people are doing with their Switches to cause scratched screens and broken shells, but it's not the Switch's fault.

Those kinda statements is what makes the rest of of males look so bad, she says once and you concluded she is a problem. Not a very good home life there if you make assumption from one thing and take it to a new low here.

Same here my nieces and nephews play on my NSW and I have no problem with the Dock or Portable mode gaming handling the NSW. But I do have a Temper Glass HD on it just for screen protection and a GripCase for portable and when dropped it protects it more.

They do they just don't want to admit they dropped or User Abused their NSW otherwise they would be called out on it.

I suppose if the dock is a tight fit, scratching the screen might be a worry. But if that's the case I'd think a screen protector or piece of cloth between the Switch and the dock would mean the Switch doesn't fit in the dock. With mine at least, the fit is a bit loose when sliding the system into the dock. As such I can tilt the Switch back a little, and the screen never rubs against the front of the dock while being put into place. And when removing the Switch from the dock, I pull it strait up with no angles involved.

@SwitchForce I think you took that last bit to seriously but really the amount of times she has dropped plates glasses phones etc is laughable and you know what we have a laugh about it I am not some dictator but being 100% honest my heart does race a bit fast when ANYONE is handling it.

This is what I thought too until I inspected my Switch carefully when that whole cracking issue came out. I found scratches on the black bezel area surrounding the screen. I dock my system very carefully but obviously you can still scratch it if you do not have a screen protector.

Nintendo probably should have lined the dock with a softer material. But I would be cautious about placing cloth around the Switch as that could act as insulation and keep the heat from dissipating.

Issues like those are the reasons I don't give much thought to things people complain about in this aspect. There have been many "disasters" that plagued the Switch hardware. Dock scratching screens, left Joy Con troubles, consoles warping, consoles cracking, and so on. And every time, I checked my console, and found nothing wrong with it.

^ I have no cracks, warping or other issues, either. But I do have scratches from the dock. No big deal, but it is a design flaw for sure. A screen protector basically fixes it.
