If your Joy-Cons detach too easily from your Nintendo Switch, there's a cheap and easy fix: replace the stock plastic buckle locks with third-party metal ones.

Remove the 4 screws on the back of the Joy-Con using a Tri-Point Y00 Screwdriver.

  • Carefully separate the two halves of the Joy-Con. Be gentle—there are ribbon cables connecting them inside.

  • Remove the single #00 Phillips screw holding the black plastic shell in place.

Remove the Phillips screw and gently pry the metal plate from the Joy-Con (a pair of tweezers might help). Be sure to hold the buckle lock in place so the spring does not fly out.

  • The buckle lock is different for the left and right Joy-Cons. Before you remove the buckle lock, identify the part that you will be replacing it with and make sure it matches the orientation of the original. Pay particular attention to which side is tapered and which side is straight.

  • Remove the buckle lock, being careful to keep the spring inside from flying out.

  • Place the spring into the replacement buckle lock. While compressing the spring, slide the buckle lock into the Joy-Con.

  • Replace the metal cover, making sure not to overtighten the screw.

  • Check that the black plastic latch button is still in place. Reassemble the Joy-Con.

I tried to do this carefully, but I ended up removing the side rail ribbon cables and I had to disassemble the whole thing just to try to get to the inside of these babies. However it seems I messed up, and now I could use some help here. I don't want to lose my left Joy-Con.

I bought this kit of replacement metal buckles, and they work beautifully: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BDH...

This kit comes with four buckles, two for the left Joy Con, and two for the right. If you happen to have two sets (or plan to get a second set) of Joy Cons, a whopping $9.00 will set you up right.

I did have a bit of trouble replacing the metal cover that holds the buckle in place, but that was my own stupidity as I was trying to do this repair with insufficient light. Once I shed some light on the subject and I could see what I was doing, everything went back together smooth as silk. I replaced the buckles on both of my Joy Cons, and they’re both rock solid now.
