Decent replacement

These are easy to install and operate perfectly smooth. However, they do not snap the screen shut and do not keep it shut like an original Nintendo hinge would. I'm subtracting a star because there was no warning in the description about that. I bought these because the original hinges in my SP were not perfectly smooth due to wear and tear, so these are a step up in that department, but also a step down due to not keeping the screen securely shut. If you need an SP hinge, an original Nintendo hinge is best.

They Kinda Work

I purchased these along with a replacement shell and IPS screen for what I was hoping to be a quick upgrade to my old SP. While these hinges kinda work and snap open, they do not snap closed like the OEM ones do and so the screen sags open and flops around. A little disappointing.

About as good as aftermarket GBA hinges get.

I bought some because I ruined my originals taking them out while doing a shell replacement. A little tough to get to go in all the way with the screen closed, but when I opened the screen a bit they slid in. Thanks!

Not the best

While these hinges definitely do work, they are pretty hard to install due to the fact the hinge sticks out on the very end more than the original does. Basically that means it's super hard to put the hinge caps on the hinges. I fought with it for like an hour, before I finally gave up and shaved down the hinge caps and just glued them on the ends of the hinges. It works for me and looks like it should now, just kind of annoying
