I mostly use my Nintendo Switch when traveling long distances. For example on an airplane, backseat of the car or in a bus. And I am always struggling to place the screen at a location comfortable to look at, especially if a friend joins me for some local multiplayer matches.
This is why I started thinking about an universal way to mount the Nintendo Switch.
After some failed experiments with hooks, I came across this paracord tensioner design from Cadfinger and with his approval I created (and shared) this design for an Universal Nintendo Switch Holder. I also used the joy-con slide design from takumus's design and I tweaked it a little to make it a tighter fit.
This design consists out of two clips that attach to the joycon slides. The clips have paracord ropes attached, which can be brought under tension with a little help from Cadfinger's design. This way the Nintendo Switch can be attached to a large number of objects, as can be seen in the photo's.
It is possible to use the ropes straight, as I did with the car sun visor mounting. Or crossed, as with the car headrest mounting.
I haven't had the chance to test it in an airplane yet, but I am quite certain it is possible to attach it at the inboard screen or tabletop.
2x M3 nut
2x M3 screw 6mm
2x 3mm paracord +/- 60cm
2x small pieces of rubber band (optional)
For me this design is working like a charm. If you printed this, please post a make with a picture of you using it, as I would really like to see some creative applications :D
I will add some steps and pictures of assembly if necessary.
Supports are necessary for the holders, the grabbers can be printed without.
I printed the holders with the side down that slides into the Nintendo Switch. In other words: the other way around as in the preview object pictures.
