    Man people are still swinging like their life depends on it?
    Really it doesn't take that much, and I haven't had a problem with mine yet, hell half the time I don't even use it.

    i've had no problem, but i have wanted a locking clasp. its more comfortable. whenever i play i have to slide up the thing every 10 seconds. it gets annoying.
     
  5. never had a problem with the straps at all.....come to think of it i dont even have a little grey stoper on my wiistraps (they came with the nintendo skins, those are the ones im using- the original ones are in my wii box upstairs).

    i dont even use the straps at all. but if its free and they come out soon ill take a whole bunch lol

    That will be nice. I hate how the little thing always slides down and you constantly have to slide it back up. I always use the strap though, I am extremely careful with all of my electronics, and don't want my Wiimote or my TV to be broken. When people come over they always get pissed because I make them always use the strap and make sure it is tight every once in a while. I don't even let anyone touch my Wii or PS3 since their glossy finish will get scratched.

    Same here. I make them use the straps. I still have my launch strap but i've never had not one problem.
