Gameboy Advance SP Hinges

| /

If you're planning to give your Game Boy Advance SP a makeover with a new shell or if your SP has started to flop due to faulty hinges, these replacement axles are just what you need. Simply remove the broken hinges, transfer the plastic caps onto the replacement barrels, and slide them into the hinge hole on the console's housing.


  • Ideal for reshelling your GBA SP in a new aftermarket shell 
  • Simple snap-in installation
  • Includes left and right barrel hinge


  • 2 x GBA SP hinges / axles 


  • The Aftermarket (Better Feel) option is easier to install and has a more satisfying closing snap
  • Remember to place the plastic cap on the hinges before inserting them into the shell
  • Ensure the grooves are properly lined up before beginning the installation process
  • You may need to apply some force to snap the hinges into place. Make sure you protect the shell and the LCD before applying force on the unit
  • It is recommended that you keep your original hinges for use in genuine shells or in clear third party SP shells since there may be some compatibility issues with this item
  • This is an aftermarket product and may not feel identical to its genuine counterpart

Very good

Nice Quality Hinges

Bought the better feel ones and currently have no issues, the snap feels as good as OEM hinges.

Almost as good as original hinges

These hinges are quite good. They have a nice snappy opening to them very similar to original hinges. The only thing i found was that closing snappiness almost doesnt exist. It's very small and almost unnoticeable. So if you want replacements these are a great option, however if you want better feeling hinges for closing use original hinges.

A solid substitute

I was not prepared to salvage the hinges from my original shell, so I ordered this instead. They don't have quite the same caliber of *snap* when closing, but I'm not sure if I could tell if I didn't have the two shells side by side.
