    I just completed the customisation of my switch but a couple things have stood out
    The screws stripped really easily especially if you haven’t ever undone them
    You have to fully open up the switch controllers so be sure to have plastic tweezers etc to handle them
    Some video tutorials make you detach the motor and battery but you don’t need to do this as long as you are careful when handling the motherboard – I tried to follow this and ended up breaking the battery wire and had to find a replacement battery so BE CAREFUL
    Also some buttons were really stif after finally closing so don’t tighten the screws too much as I will probably have to reopen them to fix this

    Quite complex installation if it is your first time – the shell is really sturdy but the screws and screwdrivers that came with it were no

    I bought this because my original switch shell was in a bad state, it was missing screws and everything.
    I love this design and it wasn’t too hard to replace everything (as long as you don’t accidentally strip I screw which I did, leaving my only option to pry apart the back of a joy-con)

    The backplate for the switch is the easiest, with the joycons being a little more involved.
    I didn’t use the joy-cons buttons as I didn’t like the multicolour ones , I feel like the cherry blossom set would benefit more from getting bundled with white buttons!

    Overall this set is great and I would highly recommend getting one if you are comfortable fitting it yourself !

    Absolutely thrilled with this kit. Just installed it over the weekend and expected the worst to be honest, as my eyesight is not what it was and I’m not exactly known for my steady hand. However, with a bit of patience and forward thinking, not to mention a good clear space and very good lighting, this was largely trouble-free. I’d read all the reviews beforehand and bought a separate console disassembly kit as advised, which came with very useful spudgers and tweezers as well as the proper screwdrivers. It does add a cost to the price you pay for upgrade, but really, even factoring that in it’s well worth it. The Switch now looks amazing and completely refreshed. By the end of it I’d surprised myself that I could do this and I think if I can, then I’m very sure you can too. It’s not easy and I would advise patience at the trickier bits – I had particular fun with the ribbon cable for the trigger on the right joycon. But just take your time and keep thinking that teeny pesky ribbon WILL go back in! Proper tweezers are invaluable here, as is a good tutorial video on YouTube. I recommend the FetchingTech one since he talks you through most of it very well indeed. Once you’ve done it though you’ll feel proper chuffed with yourself.

    I’ve now bought the SNES style dock shell to match and cannot wait to see it all done. Awesome, well made product that will absolutely put a smile on your face!

    Parts were made extremely well and fit perfectly.

    The fit comes with everything you need however I did use my own tools due to people having threading issue’s, everything lined up and clipped together as if it was a genuine Nintendo kit!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great shell!

    Really good product, have no complaints. As long as you take your time almost anyone can do this. Only thing I’d say don’t use the video tutorial they made search YouTube for someone else as they’re tutorial could cause issues with the delicate cables inside the joy-cons.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersLove it. – It’s not easy or quick – It’s not difficult – just fiddly
    The console backplate is super easy to change – the joy-cons are a fair bit harder – the right joy-con in particular will take longer to do due to it having the Amiibo reader and the IR camera inside.

    Worth it though.

    I will definitely be getting the shells with the D-pad for my 2nd set of Joycons.

    5.0 out of 5 stars This turned my well worn, 4 year old switch, into a shiny new console.

    This replacement shell is absolutely gorgeous and in all honesty, seems and feels way more durable than the OG shell. It’s not extremely difficult to swap, but do be aware that the tools they provide are not magnetized and the screws on the switch are ridiculously tiny, so that will be a challenge. Other than that, if you’re experienced in electronics and/or feel like you are capable of doing the case swap, go for it. Again, looks stunning and feels super good/durable.

    I bought this to make my switch look a little different from others (mine was the standard neon blue/red)

    I can say with a little time patience and a steady hand you can make your switch look totally different in around 40-60 mins. the housing fits perfectly and everything fits in nicely just like a official one.

    the tools are a little hit and miss, but the kit comes with a bag of replacement screws and springs so if you are unlucky to have a spring launch skywards you are covered.

    i will 100% be buying more sets to keep customising my own and friends consoles! highly reccomended!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars amazing custom housing!

    It’s pretty good quality. Plastic is thick enough and the detail is good. The only issue is the inner look, very cheap looking, but you won’t really ever see i

    Great case fairly easy to put on the back plate didn’t take long the joycons took longer. I’m a complete novice so I watched some YouTube videos and took my time. I think that’s the key to just take your time it took me 30 mins on the left joycon as I replaced a analog stick at the same time, and 45 on the right.

    5.0 out of 5 stars If you just take your time

    The switch back plate was very easy and simple to install, while the joycons were a fair bit more fiddly. Happy with the end result though – it looks and feels great, as well as feeling quite sturdy.

    My only critism is that it would be nice for the image on the joycons to line up more perfectly with the switch.

    Okay, first off: The design on the shell is gorgeous. It was exactly what it was promised to be.

    Now for the installation: the shell for the console itself was easy to install. No issues there. However, the joycon shell replacements were pretty difficult to install. It requires a steady set of hands, which I do not have. I got there in the end, though with some persistence.

    Overall, the shells are sturdy, slightly damage resistance but over all they are beautiful.

    Would recommend, but be warned. You need a steady hand and the patience of a saint.

    Golden Review Award: 3 From Our UsersThe switch is passing down from our 13.5 year old boy to our 4.5 year old girl for Xmas. He didn’t look after it too well and had a lot of scratches and his left joy con was drifting, the joy cons also weren’t securing to the switch as strong as they used to. Came across ExtremeRate products on Amazon and realised I would be able to do a complete re-shelling and fix up of the console to make it more girly too.

    I have little to no experience when it comes to things like this but I have never been too afraid to open things up and give things a try.

    First of all, I replaced the drifting joy stick, then I swapped out the plastic clips for metal ones before starting on re-shelling the joy cons themselves. It look a little bit of examining and playing about to figure out how it comes apart and goes back together, but it was not overly complex.

    The came the big job, the console itself. The new case came with a back shell but no front so I opted for white front shell to contrast the rear shell and component some of the white features of the new shell. I initially took apart the entire console, but for bit, mapping out the screws as I went along. I ensured I was meticulous and slow. After doing that I realised that I could have just separated the digitiser screen from the front shell to expose the screws and not dismantled it all.

    I made I few little mistakes putting it back together, nothing too worrying, so ending up closing and re-opening the console a few times but after some persistence and care I got there.

    The trickiest part was removing the digitiser, it’s pretty well stuck down and I also didn’t use heat to soften it up but I was gentle and careful.

    I think the end results speak for itself. It looks amazing and has added a whole new life to a 4 year old console. The warranty is long gone so there was no risk of losing that anyway. The replacement parts are all high quality, even down to the tiniest of screws.

    I have now ordered some Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut to top up the thermal paste on the heat sink (as it was starting to look a little dried up) just to be sure and keep the console as cool as possible, so one more open up and job done in time for Xmas.

    Would highly recommend these products! If I can do it, you can too.

    5.0 out of 5 stars High quality mod-job kit!

    To start off with I would like to say that I am a novice when it comes to this sort of thing. I literally bought my switch and the next day, took it apart to customise with minimal knowledge of what I was doing.

    It is time consuming and you need patience (took me around 2 hours total for all my modifications)!

    The instructions are all in the photos on the advert and I’m really pleased with the results.

    The kit comes with absolutely everything you need to completely modify the switch and joycons.

    Very pleased at how they came out and really good the part with the rest of my modifications.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Really beautiful results

    It was quite fun assembling it (watched a YouTube video made by IGN which was easy to follow) and overall pretty nice. The tool provided wasn’t that bad as long you screw/unscrew the screws generally so it doesn’t blunt the tool. I didn’t really use the screws given but instead the ones originally on the Switch so I’m not sure how they fit? The only downside I’d say is the line from the Joycons and the actual console doesn’t fit? But other than that everything else is fine.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good :3

    The material used for the joycon shells feel amazing and the quality of the print really shows. The only issue is that the plus and minus buttons on each joycon are too flush with the shells. This means they aren’t as easy to press as other buttons. I still recommend highly because of the quality of the image and the material used.
