Designed by a Nintendo fan for Nintendo fans. 

My goal as a Switch fan was originally to create an optimal console grip for my personal use. After searching the market, I have yet to come by a grip that has that comfortable console feel, and lets you detach the Joycons at will. So I decided to make one for myself and now I want to share it with my fellow Switch fans.~ Head Designer at ProSwitchGrips

  •  Perfect Fit. Design Puts Hands in Best Game-Ready Position.
  •  Perfect size. Suitable for all hand sizes. Suitable for gamers of any age.
  •  Ergonomic. Allows great mobility and extension for the thumb to hover over the joystick freely for maximum comfort. 
  •  Durable. Made out of high quality plastic.
  •  Unique Design. No other grip out there allows for the Joycons' modular usage while also providing a console like grip.
  •  Portable. Can be easily attached, removed, and stowed.
  •  Very lightweight. Streamlined for minimal bulk
  • Allows joycons to be detached with the grip on
  • Motion control compatible
  • Allows Switch to be docked with grips on
  • Compatible with battery cases that are currently on the market

 Color Options

Currently there are two color options available.

However, we want to include a third color, but there's a twist. 

Upon reaching the Stretch Goal of $4000, backers will have the opportunity to vote on what will be our official third color option!

Does not interfere with the Joycon's ability to separate in motion control mode or single Joycon mode (it actually gives you a bit more to grab onto in this mode as well). So you can still easily hand a Joycon to a friend and play some Mario Cart at the local cafe.

Risks and challenges

The project is at a stage where my manufacturers are refining the 3D files for compatibility with their machining instruments. Soon after that they will have pre-production samples at the ready for approval or minor tweaking and once this is done, it's just a matter of cutting the molds, and we'd be ready to go with production. We've had extensive experience with manufacturing, inspecting, and shipping plastic parts and products so this is quite a regular and familiar process to us. There's always the off chance of a snag here or there, and we've accounted for this in our time table, and we have discussed all of this with our manufacturer as well.

Looking forward to some smooth sailing!
