Time to replace the boring, scuffed up, or even cracked Nintendo Switch backplate with a new one! This is not for a full console shell, but this video is to show how to easily replace the backplate/bottom housing shell on the Switch console itself. Thankfully this cosmetic modification is quite easy to do and only requires a small Phillips head screwdriver as well as a Triwing screwdriver. Despite this being a quick and easy modification, there’s still several steps that people could miss, and even some shortcuts that many will overlook!
