Those of you lucky enough to have gone hands-on with the Switch at one of Nintendo's recent public events may well be concerned about the robustness of the console's kickstand, especially after seeing this post on Reddit which shows the stand popping clean off when placed into the dock.

However, we're happy to report that the kickstand is actually designed to disengage from the main Switch unit when force is applied; it can then be re-clipped back onto the console.

Given that we're all likely to try and dock the console with the kickstand open at least once during our ownership of the machine, this is good news. What do you think? Let us know with a comment.
