If you hate to hold the Nintendo Switch in your hands but love the idea of playing it portably, the Fixture S1 Mount and Carrying Case are designed for you. These two pieces of gear can and will change the way you play with and use your Switch daily, as long as you’re happy to supply the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller yourself.
I’ve been chucking the S1 Case & Mount in my bag and carrying it to work and around my house now for a few weeks, and the target audience for the S1 Mount is clear. It may not have changed my life as someone happy (most of the time) to play the Switch handheld with Joy-Cons attached, but I can quickly see how this could change lives. Most importantly, if the barrier between how much you play the Switch is an ergonomic factor, this is your best solution on the market right now.
The Fixture S1 Mount was released late last year, while the Fixture S1 Carrying Case was released in June 2021. Some of you may have or be aware of the mount, but the case will be a great addition to your S1 Mount if you already own one.
Setting up the S1 Mount is as simple as clipping your Pro Controller into the bottom and then sliding your Switch (without Joy-Cons attached) into the mount itself. Everything is rather tight and safe when it’s together and you’ll never feel like it’s going to fall apart. When holding the Pro Controller, you can tilt and move the Switch screen into your perfect position for playing comfort, and it doesn’t feel like the screen is going to fall or topple over no matter the angle you’re holding it on. The whole unit is somewhat heavy, although not uncomfortable, it would be too much for a small child to hold. If you like to play your Switch a lot in bed, however, I wouldn’t suggest the S1 Mount as I found that more awkward than simply using the Switch with the Joy-Cons attached.
