    Sacrificed an old micro USB cord. Jig worked first time I tested which felt good after all the time spent pruning the USB connector down to size.

    You slide it down the rail like you would a joycon, and the pins are kept securely in place as a result.

    Don't know if this is common for all jigs, but it is a really good design. The Keyring is great too, particularly if you have a carry case or something to clip it to.

    I simply bought a replacement joy con rail and connected pins 1 & 10. No Modification of the actual joy cons needed, zero risk of damaging the pins of the switch (since they mate with the actually intended rail) and it can be stored away nicely in some pouch.

    I have bought a replacement joy con rail too, but now I'm wondering if should I solder a wire in pins 1 and 10 or should solder 9 and 10. I've seen many with pins 9 and 10 soldered and they say it works perfectly, but I also read some saying anyone shouldn't use pin 9 (because it's not a real ground, or something like that).

    So, what u guys think?

    DSCN0225[1].JPG Cheaper than a jig, better than a paper clip (even though it looks like one)
