I'm always worried that I'll bust the top screen right off. Anyway to tighten it?

I have the same problem since I bought mine August 2011. Till this day the hinges still click. It was a design choice for the hinges to be a bit loose so that they don't break easily unlike previous DS hinges.

Oh really? so its not an issue? Cause when I play Mario Kart 7, my hand is big around the left side while I hold the L button down so I can keep an item out and my finger presses against the back of the top screen which makes it move and crackle sounds a lot from the hinge movement. Idk, but it seems like the 3DS is tougher to get a grip on than the regular DS use to be for me. Love the system so far though.

My 3DS makes a clicking noise on the left hinge. I'm a bit worried about it as well
