Hi,

I got my Switch on Friday and so far I am loving it. The only problem I have with it are the Joycon straps. It is super easy to attach them to the Joycons but getting them off is not as smooth as I'd like. It actually requires quite a lot of power, which doesn't make me feel comfortable about it. I bought one extra pair of Joycons so I have two pairs of the straps and two of them are so difficult to take off, it feels like I put it there the other way around. The other two are also way more difficult that I'd like though. Also a weird thing is that if I use one of the straps on a specific Joycon, it falls of by itself.

Does anyone have the same problem?

oh and before you ask... No, I am not putting them on the wrong way

Are you aware of the locking device on the bottom of each strap? I think some people are overlooking it and trying to wrench them off anyway. It's still a little stiff even unlocked, but not too bad.

I think the worst thing that has happened with me is giving them to my Dad who put them in upsidedown. That was a nightmare to fix. M

Yes, I am aware of the locking at the bottom. The positioning doesnt make sense because when I try to push it off, ill lock it again but whatever. I did put it there once upside down and yes, it was pain in the pooper to get it off but not that much worse than what it is for me now

I have the same issue with correctly positioned straps. They are really hard to take off. It helped to put on the wristband and then pull not only with the fingers but with the whole arm. Still way to hard for comfortable use.

What can change the nature of a man?

@Janus1986 I dont have problem taking it off only using my finger but it requires so much power that I feel like I am gonna break it at some point if I keep forcing it like this

@Masurao thanks that's helpful. IMO you can see the amount of force the person removing the JoyCon has to use. Obviously Nintendo wanted it to make superhard to accidently make the JoyCon fly, but I don't know why they had to make it that hard to remove them given that there is a lock anyway.

The approach described in that video works fine, especially that you actually don't have to press that button on the back. Glad I have that figured out now, this issue was the one design flaw I found annoying with the Switch.

yes, it works for me too. Finally I dont have to worry about breaking it everytime I try to take it off
