    Is anyone else having this problem with the new straps? i've got 2 already unthreading. You think Nintendo will send me new ones if I email them the problem?

    >_> One of mine unthreaded a little bit because I used my teeth to pull on the strap.

    Don't ask why.

    Lmao

    I got my new Wii straps but why stick them on if the old ones havn't snapped yet?
    There really is no need. Im sure your not going to let go of it anyways....
    So keep the old ones on until it snaps or REALLY starts to unthread

    I'm hardcore, I play strapless. It gets in the way when playing some games like Wii Sports tennis.

    Yeah they'll replace them.
    Just go the official Wii site and they'll send you new ones.
    The new ones they send now are cheap knock offs though.

    I don't use the strap either... it's not difficult to hold onto a remote and NOT let go.

    I use the strap because in SSX Blur when i do a flip the plastic thing always hits me or the wiimote.

    Oh yeah and my old straps started unthreading when my dog chewed on them. Stupid mut!

    LOL!

    The straps shouldn't be getting damaged tbh dry putting them in a Dry spot. I dunno if they'll replace them if they are all ready the new ones... Should do if you explain with pictures etc

    In Australia when you order the new straps they send them out with a reply paid self addressed envelope so you can send them back the old ones :wink:
