    I mean those adhesive ones , the little cushion like bumpers that stick to your 3ds screen for protection!

    i have the og small 3ds, the bottom part creates lines on the upper screen and i also have ogXL/n3dsXL which do not have that problem,
    BUT ! i have ordered a set of circle grip covers from CyberGadget.

    these http://www.amazon.com/Circle-Pad-Co...460628180&sr=8-1&keywords=n3ds+xl+circle+grip

    and i plan to use them on my 3ds'es and i would like to ask you guys , what kind of bumper cushion size would be perfect to use with the circle grip on ?

    i ask because i obviously do not want to keep taking the circle grips off/on off/on !

    so please give me some recommendation for adhesive bumper cushions , thanks in advance !

    xbox360 ? or what do you mean, do you mean the little bumpers of the consoles?

    @driverdis mate you did mention these in my other thread, http://www.amazon.com/Polyurethane-Adhesive-Protect-Cushion-Surfaces/dp/B000EBVTV4

    they are abit expensive , but there are really 250 pieces in the bag?? cause that would be well worth the price actually..

    but i would appreciate it if you could take few pictures of your 3ds with these bumpers on !

    open the 3ds and let me see how they look like, and also when you close the 3ds i would like to see the gap ! much appreciated if you could do this for me, thanks!

    I slapped screen protectors on mine.
    Haven't had a 360 yet where I nicked the bumpers off.
    Atleast, I had a few RRoDs from people which I scrapped for parts but I never nicked the rubber feet off.

    If I had a few spare then I'd send them towards you in a postcard if you'd be open to send me a post card back with a couple of small cents ;p

    Just do what I do. Go down to a local Wal-Mart and buy some googly eyes. They make for great bumpers and look cool too. :P

    o3DS will need larger ones. n3DS I used the small ones. :P

    LOooooL your 3ds seems like it is laughing with its mouth open wide X'D

    its looking really good! i would actually want to buy those bumpers i posted.. someone on amazon did mention that he uses them for his 3ds consoles and also on his ps4 etc.

    and i happen to have a ps4/ps3 and a wii u. so i could use them with those as well, i will see about ordering them now.

    (about the googly eyes, it would be difficult for me to find things like that in the place where i live , i been downtown today and i had no luck finding anything related to bumpers)

    so i am forced to order those bumpers , i do not like using any homemade stuff on my consoles to be honest, like tape etc.
    i used some car tape once on my og3ds, and it was actually doing the job nicely, but it just didnt look natural enough to me.. so i took it off after a while.

    @driverdis yo! i have ordered the ones you are using, the bumpers.
    it cost me 17.50$ .. since it contains 250pieces , its well worth the price.
    thanks again for giving me that link !
