Get Yer New New New New Wii-Straps For Free

or those still flailing wildly during Wii Sports, good news. Nintendo has released the fourth version of its Wii-mote strap and giving them away. For free! Remember, these have little lock thingy that keeps the strap from loosening. Nintendo's packaging the updated straps with its products and is also giving out four per serial number to those who need them. How nice of them! Just provide the necessary info on the Nintendo site. I'm curious: Do people continue to swing their Wii-mote around all crazy like?
Request one here

I just received the latest generation of wrist straps today. Version 3.0 was silently released a few weeks ago, which has left die hard Wii Sports fans requesting an immediate shipment. The great new feature is the locking mechanism which grips the strap to prevent the slider from loosening. This helps greatly with physical input Wii games.

Nintendo is now packaging the new straps with their respective products. Getting the updated straps is free and easy. Just head over to Nintendo customer service, tell them that you want the new straps, and poof, you gotem.

Update: Ive been getting a lot of emails due to ordering issues. Let me clarify the process. Since most of us ordered the version 2 straps via wrist strap replacement order form back in January, Nintendo wont let you use that order form a second time. Thats why I provided the link above. It will send you directly to a customer service request, where you just write up a few lines asking for the latest straps. Within a few days, Nintendo will reply with your ordering needs. Simple. Shoot me an email if you are still having trouble understanding/ordering

only lets me select US or Canda on the webform:?

am i missing a trick?
#6
Have seen this elsewhere, was under the assumption it was US and Canada only.
#7
I've had a Wii since 3rd of Jan but never any new straps for my two wiimotes.

Not sure what I'm suppose to say or which category it falls under.
#8
THIS IS FOR THE US, Why post here?
#9
Dang, got me all excited
#10
Thanks OP sent message.

Bought mine on launch day with 2 wiimotes, one had thin strap and one thick?? bizzare.

They started packaging the new straps right after launch. It's possible one got into the seperate wiimote.

This deal reminded me I am STILL waiting for my extra straps and 'ordered' them before christmas.

Thats the US website. This is the one for UK residents http://wiiportal.nintendo-europe.com/6315.html
#13
Has anyone actually had any of the original straps break on them?

Theyve changed again since those replacements were made available. The original revision was to make the part that connects to the remote thicker, as can be seen on the link you posted.

However, the design has been altered again, to make the straps less likely to come loose.

This can be seen here and here.

So its a bit of a waste ordering the ones you linked to above, as they have been superseded already.
#15
stoopid thing, it just tells me my serial number is incorrect or has been used, and its neither, stoopid!!!

:D same here..
#18
Same here too.
#19
Right. Can we clarify here.. I used this same nintendo europe website to order new straps earlier this year for the ones that have the thin strap (which was prone to snapping). So I have the thicker ones, but still have the slider.

If I reapply for new straps on the nintendo europe website again does that mean I'll get the 3rd gen straps with the clip?
#20
Said my serial number was invalid as well, so just made one up below the LEH104026220 number...worked a treat :D
#21
I have emailed them as my straps with the slider have started coming loose and this thread has prompted me to take action. I have voiced my concerns over the safety of my plasma tv whilst my young children are using the wii. I shall let everyone know if I have any success.

I also thought about making up a low serial number so I shall be interested to know whether you get the clip style straps.

This is exactly what is happening to our two remotes. I tried the link and like others was told the serial had been already used etc. I too have emailed CS with concerns etc.

That's probably what someone else did to make yours invalid :giggle:
#24
Mine is invalid too. I seem to remember getting 2 replacements straight after launch, which were not much different to be honest. If there is a lock on the slider I'd like these as my 8 yr old don't half swing his baseball bat !!!. How though without inadvertently nicking someone elses code ????
#25
my hubby tried this some time ago and it said that the serial number had been used too.Makes you wonder what is going on doesn't it.
#26
I have just spoken to Nintendo customer support on the phone and they are telling me that the straps with the clips do not exist in the UK. The only ones that they can send me are the version 2 straps that came out just after the launch of the WII. Bit of confusion here!

I imagine people are abusing the offer and selling them on ebay/markets etc.....
#28
Oh well, carry on with the old ones then.
#29
Then I guess this thread needs to be expired ..

Doubt it, there's not much profit to be made, and third party kits of 4 can be had for £1.50 ish:

Following my email to Nintendo commenting on my straps coming loose I received 2 new ones in the post today!

Not the new clip ones (that are apparently not available in the Uk) but a good result none the less!

Thanks to the op for prompting me into action with my email.

Yes but that is £1.50 of my money and everyone elses that has not been sent to them too.So there could be some profit to be made ho well never mind.
banned#33
mine came today! :) rep left
#34
Mine came today. Got the clips on them to.
#35
I see people are getting the ones with clips on now! I got some new ones recently by emailing Nintendo and asking. I wonder if it is worth applying again to get the ones with clips.
#36
I ordered the wii jackets about 2 - 3 weeks ago now when i try and get these new straps they say the serial is either wrong or used what should i do?

Try emailing them. That's what I did stating that my straps were coming loose and I was concerned about my plasma tv in front of my 5 year old when he is playing ;-). They sent replacements without a problem.

Now I want the ones with the clips though :p
#38

#39
You say you posted a link but i dont see it...can someone post again please
#40
So the Europe link gives you the ones with the clips then?
