Wii remote replacement straps-1-4 (for the original version)

Nintendo is offering to replace the original version of the wrist straps for the Wii Remote with a newer version. Because Wii consoles shipped starting in early December already utilised the newer version of the strap, you will need to determine which version of the strap you have before ordering a replacement.

Quite a few people have had this problem. Other users quoting their serial code I'm afraid.:x
Perhaps if you contact customer services. Good luck!

I had this when I contacted them ages ago, just send them an email complaining and they'll send you them with an apology, you'd think they'd have fixed the damn site by now.

What's the difference in quality between the old ones and the new ones?

What's the difference in quality between the old ones and the new ones?



The replacement ones are thicker/stronger than the originals, to help stop stupid/overexictable people throwing their Wiimotes through their nice new LCD TVs..........:whistling:

Only folks with ealy release Wiis should need these though - as stated above, it is an old, and ongoing offer, and all Wiis bought recently should already have the newer version of the straps.

The new ones come with different fasteners as well. The older version was just a band which you pulled up around your wrist. I think the new ones have a fastener type catch instead.

This is a good spot, as the old straps were pretty lame. I got the jackets last time, so I expect I will encounter the serial number error as well

it will not let me get the straps that is probably because i sent of for the jackets,

Thanks for the reminder, been meaning to order these for months. I tried yesterday but got the same message as everyone else about number being wrong or used before. I e-mailed them and they got back to me today. They are going to manually order them for me.

I got a reply this morning:-

Dear Customer, thank you for your e-mail.

Please be advised that I have passed on your order for Wii Wrist Straps, which will be processed shortly.

Please allow upto 28 days for delivery



Thank you for your kind attention and continued support for Nintendo.



Kind regards,

I know that this is an old offer but couldn't find the original post and that a reminder might be useful.

I think that there has been so many accidents that if anyone emails them, Nintendo will respond ^^ as above and hopefully send the replacements.

No luck here either, just sent an email and will wait and see what happens.

Good find but only works if you haven't used the wii serial number for the remote sleeves :x

If you e-mail them your details they will do the order for you manually.

Heat and rep added - got a launch console with the old style straps!

i still havent received any replacements despite getting an email saying they would send some.

I just chose a random number between leh100000010 and leh 104026220. Had to do it a couple of times but worked eventually. (Sorry if I inadvertantly picked someones number....)

just did it again with the jackets, right first time this attempt!

doesn't work
