I bought 2 of this white hinges and they don't shut all the way, so I used the previous that I had.
Thanks for your review! People will generally prefer the OEM hinges since they tend to fit better than the aftermarket ones - easier to insert. We recommend using Vaseline or dialectic grease when inserting hinges in general into the hinge housing to help insertion and avoid breaking either the hinges or the shell. The best method for insertion and removal is for the shell to be on it's side and one click from fully open.
I cracked a couple of aftermarket shells with OEM, so I got these. Still very snug but work well if you thread them correctly. A softer close than OEM, but not bad.
Replacement Hinges for Game Boy Advance SP - Pair
The hinges I received are not what I ordered or should I say not what is pictured on the listing or advertised. As an avid SP modder I have encountered many different aftermarket hinges and factory hinges. The hinges pictured on the listing are actually right side hinges, what I received is a universal hinge. With that being said they are decent quality aftermarket universal hinge and for that I give a 3 star. I have yet to see a seller label their hinges properly as right, left or universal. Iam unsure if it is pure naivety by the shops (which also sell expensive modded gameboys) or they purely don’t know, I would seriously question any console sold by a shop that doesn’t know in depth details of a console like this. If these hinges were listed as universal, I would easily 5 star it. Picture included shows a right hinge with the same swooped portion as the advertised picture, hinges on the left and in bag are what was received.
One was a bit dirty, not an issue I'm sure it was just from the factory. Both hinges fit perfectly in oem or third party shells. The feel is perfect, not too tight and not too loose.
