3D model description

Wanted something a bit more portable than the big single piece grips so I decided to try making a smaller one. This relies on a tiny peg that locks in one of the bottom screw holes on the joycon. You slide the grip in from the bottom until you feel the peg locking in. To take it off you push on the tab at the top and it pops right off.
I left a bit of wiggle room to put some strips of electrical tape to try to avoid scratching the joycons. I prefer that over making it really snug and scratch everything.
Work in progress, your mileage may vary.
