    I bought a Nintendo Switch about a month ago, and just yesterday I noticed a problem where the left joy-con slides out without pushing the button. I think I know what the problem is, I'm just not sure how to fix it. It seems as if the latch on the left one is pushed in more than the right one. Hopefully, someone knows the answer.

    Actually, now that I look closer, it seems that a part chipped off of the latch

    Go to a service center, throw them the left joycon to the head (be sure to make a hit) and get a new one for free.

    PS: On the bad side, you may get back a desynching joy con, I already have two, they are a PITA.

    I would have to agree. My joycons don't really desync, but when they do, it's SO BAD. Heck, once I climbed a building in LC:U for like 20 mintues, and then, my joycon desynced. To be continued.

    Ive had this issue start too, ive gone through nintendo's service site to request a label, so see what happens

    Wierdly though, why isnt it the right? And also, I dont understand why such a important mechanism is made out of plastic...
