Hello. Just though I ask for a suggestion. So on 3DS models, the bumpers being too low and causing the lower belze to rub against the larger top screen seems to still occur. Apparently a design flaw, I guess. On 3DS XL and the "New" models, the borders around the screen are actually plastic of the case itself (as the DS Lite). The original launched model of 3DS however......had the shiny screen cover extending over the entire top section of the system. The bumpers too were redesigned, from separate entities you could remove to actual configurations of the case/shell. I ramble, so here is what I ask. I have an original 3DS model and I wanted to end the need to place a cloth everytime I close the system problem. Without sending it (at the moment). This topic listed an idea they came up with which actually is quite reasonable: http://handheldaddict.blogspot.com/2011/08/3ds-screen-scratches-avoidence-fix.html "pull bumpers out and place (...) under and reattach. It looks as new and holds the top screen high enough where it does not meet headfirst into the touch screen" etc, ect. Cool, just one question: if I do not have Wii sticky-tape-to-attach-sensor-on-top-of-tv-tape, what brand/item would substitute in quality for that special object? Oh and for those with the 3DS XL and "New" class, bumpers for under laptops and for under tables to extend the height or cease movement are the best solution apart from a microfiber cloth between the screens or at least the edge (to lift up higher). It could work on the original 3DS, but the sticky residue is a concern with the slick surface and longevity of how long they last, or just design wise (if picky).
