So so

The bracket fits nicely but I expected the screen to fit like a globe, I had to readjust the screen several times and in the end, it wasn't perfect. the screen it's tilted to the right veeeeeery slightly. Still, it made the installation more easy, that much I can tell.

So close to being perfect...

Like others, I have encountered the screen being slightly out of square after using this bracket. The concept, though, is a slam dunk. Securing the screen using the bracket is quick and painless, and when the issues are worked out with the quality issues on this, I'll gladly purchase more of them.

Amazing upgrade!

The installation was super easy, the fit was great, the display is amazing! I would recommend anyone looking to replace or upgrade their screen give this a try!

Casey Anderson
Great Product.

Item was exactly as described.

Useless for Some

I noticed in the reviews that this item did not work for some people, but I didn't think that would include me. I was wrong. It pushed my screen too far to the right by a millimeter. I see how it could've been useful if Handheld Legend had checked if it would work with the shell and LCD I purchased in the same order.

I'm sorry you are having issues with this product. Please contact us at so we may resolve this for you.

It's off by a mm or two

The bracket won't align correctly. Needed to be about a mm to the left. Support offered an apology and a $2 coupon that can't be used with any other coupon or credits. Better to pay $4 elsewhere for 4 post bracket. Save yourself pain and time.

We should have a new guide out soon to show how to install this into your DMG with no issues. :)
