Gripping my thumb onto the Circle Pad.

#1TwilightRaverPosted 9/24/2013 5:43:41 PM
I often find my thumb slipping off of the pad when I'm trying to move around my character. There's no grooves or anything in it to help grip my thumb onto it. Is there any way to rectify this? Anything I could purchase or do?

What? It's the same as the 3DS thumbpad.

Wipe down the pad with something dry and wash your hands until they are dry. If that doesn't help maybe a double sided sandpaper, 80 grit maybe. and cut out a round piece the side of the analog and then elmers glue it to the circle pad(in case you want to take it off in the future)

Well, they're sold out on amiami but I have these and they work well:

Only downside is that obviously, you have to remove it when you close the 3DS. But the grip is far better than the stock feel, and doesn't require you scratching/sanding the circle pad or whatever.

Any idea when those would be sold again or if those are sold anywhere else?

... was that a bump? Don't know what to say TC. Maybe stop sweating so much in the hands, maybe?

Those are never coming back. However there's another brand that you can try. I have both kinds and actually prefer the latter:

Yeah, that was supposed to be a bump. My hands aren't even that sweaty, but my thumb easily slips off the Circle Pad whenever I need to keep it on.

Sounds interesting, and I'm noticing that there's a bunch of 3DS XL accessories that I've yet to see on any other site (they have several grips and I've only seen one or two on other sites), so I'm a bit curious. I can't seem to find any reviews for stuff... but if you do have it, then I'm hoping it is legitimate. How long did it take for those to arrive?

The site is large and certainly legit. I got them about a month ago, so I can't remember exactly how long shipping took, but I believe it was reasonable (within two weeks). What was the killer was waiting for them to ship. They took forever, and delayed it at least once. The item works GREAT though, I can't even describe what a difference it has made in the way I use the system. I can take pictures for you tomorrow if you wish (I'm away from my system at the moment, in a different state actually). I use the one with multiple circles, it's very comfortable.
