Keep your Nintendo Switch scratch-free with a ‘dock sock’

Address user complaints about the dock scratching the system with this clever solution.

While the Nintendo Switch has garnered bright reviews across the board since its release, there’s one major problem gamers have reported: the dock scratching the screen.

While Nintendo seems dubious about the veracity of these claims (despite photographic proof), gamers have been cleverly working on their own solutions. One comes from Etsy shop MrGeeksBoutique in the form of what the creator calls a “dock sock.” Made with fabrics featuring Mario, Zelda and even comic books heroes, these are a cute little way to protect your Switch from scratches while dressing up the dock a bit.

These run $20 and are handmade to order. We’re guessing Mr. Geek might take custom orders too, if you’re really nice to him. Then you don’t have to worry about ruining something that you blew hundreds of dollars on, and your Switch dock looks that much cuter in the process. What a win/win.
