Go slow. Check every connection. Keep your screws organized.
Watch a YouTube video on how to do it though, pausing and replaying often.
When you are reassembling the Joy-cons you must be conscious of how tight you are tightening the screws as that will affect how your buttons to press.
When removing the Joy-con outer screws make sure you are using a Tri-wing screwdriver. Be careful not to strip the 4 outer triangle screws or over tighten any screws.
There are multiple very delicate ribbon cables that need to be removed and reattached.
Use tweezers instead of bulky fingers at all times to help with the little pieces that you'll take to move to the new case.
Note that the ZR and ZL on the Joy-cons are spring loaded so be careful when opening.
Totally upgrade your Switch to the exclusive and stylish level.
Ergonomic d-pad button can greatly improve your left Joycon function, perfect for d-pad intensive games.
Made of durable non-toxic ABS plastic.
The texture is not a rubberized finish. Instead, it is semi-slick, matte soft plastic.
More comfortable and feels better in hands than the stock shell.
