Nintendo Switch front covers for your dock prevent screen scratching in the best way


The Nintendo Switch's clever design allows you to play the handheld console on your television, but the device can be easily scratched if your device is without a front cover. Some may choose to go the screen protector route, but if you prefer to keep your system naked, a Switch front cover in the form of a dock sock does the trick. Here are the coolest-looking ways to protect your Nintendo Switch screen.
