    Hi everyone, I just registered here on GBAtemp since I always come here for info and such and decided to reg.

    Anyhow, my new ndsl touch screen came in the mail today, I'm about to try to repair it, most of the
    triwing screws are pretty stripped since I've had to do other repairs, (ds' need a heavy duty version for ppl like me :[ )
    so can anyone link me to any were I can buy replacement triwing screws so I won't have to struggle every time I
    go tinkering inside the ds? Thanks in advance.

    also sorry if I put it in the wrong section, I kinda suck at that.

    Try poking around on eBay - there are definitely replacement sets for Wii (replacing the triwings for phillips screws) and many of the screws are common between them (though I don't think the Wii set has the smaller ones required in the DS so don't buy a Wii set in error)

    Nobody says replacement screws have to be triwing.
    Take one of the remaining screws to a local electronics store, like Radio Shack, and ask if they have something similar.
    Chances are you'll get out cheaper than ordering replacement screws online.
