Nintendo Australia to replace wrist straps - here's how! [Dec. 21st, 2006|04:02 pm]

Wii Remote Wrist Strap Replacement Information

Nintendo is offering to replace the original version of the wrist straps for the Wii Remote with a newer version. We have received some reports that when consumers swing the Wii Remote with the original version of the wrist strap using excessive force and accidentally let go, the cord connecting the controller to the wrist strap can break, potentially causing the Wii Remote to fly across the room. Because some of the Wii consoles shipped in early December utilise the original version of the wrist strap, you will need to determine which version of the wrist strap you have before requesting a replacement. Please see the diagram below to determine if you have the original version of the wrist strap. If your Wii Remote already has the new version of the wrist strap it is not necessary to replace it. The newer wrist strap is thicker than the original version.

To request a replacement wrist strap, contact NINTENDO CUSTOMER SERVICE on (03) 9730 9822 Monday to Friday 9:00am to 5:00pm (EST).

To check whether your remote has the new or old strap, click here.

and how long will it take them to replace them? i already had to have my sensor bar replaced. luckily my EB had one left (and before xmas too). they had just gotten 3 in like an hour before and said i could swap it over if i brought it in that day. awesome guys those dudes. just i have 4 of the bastards. it was hard enough to get the 4 motes and chucks preordere, let alone swapping the motes over.

Before I phone, does Nintendo charge existing old strap owners at all?
