    The happened to me on my blue shock shell. I figured I bought this to replace the normal hinge crack on regular DS Lite shells, and if this thing is going to crack in a week, I'll just stick with the better quality shell, basically I put the original shell back on. I beleive someone on the their forum stated all he did was take a solder to it, and melted the hinge back together. IMO those things are crap, the angle of the screen was off by a few degrees, it just is not worth 40$ to me.

    I have done a shock replacement twice now and I have had no probs at all I think they are fine a better alternative to not playing at all when the LED falls out LOL, But I think the people who bash the shock cases fail to realize the real problem here and it is poor manufacturing on Nintendo's part! This is my 2 cent's.

    To those who have a cracked hinge; do you pull the screen all the way back so it becomes flat ?

    I see what you mean and that would defiantly contribute to the cracked hinge.
