Get you some of these... Still not Pro controller comfortable, but it's a helluva lot better than the JoyCons alone. There are a couple of different brands, but these are the ones I got and know they're comfortable enough in my large hands.
this is a super common one, though lots of people still complain because they are basically tiny gamepads. Unfortunately there isnt much else in terms of bigger grips. There are things of these shapes and size, and the small wheels.
Im sure people are also 3d printing a bunch.
These are a set of "hollow" controllers that the Joy Con fit into to make them a little more comfortable. They come with a covering thing to add extra size and grip to the joysticks too, and those work really great for me. Not a standalone option, but it might be worth it if you want the controller shells too.
Check these out instead. They look better and from my personal experience (and my fiancee), they feel great.
Does anyone know the name of a JoyCon Grip Kit that looks similar to this? [link]
I think it hasn't released yet but I like the design
No problem, I'm really happy with how forward-thinking Nintendo has been with the joycon. For a company with a bottomline of simplicity in gaming, I was expecting another sideways wii-mote situation when I first saw the reveal and I think a lot of others thought similarly. Thankfully that's not the case, I'm surprised with how many buttons they did cram into it.
I'm gonna grab a set of these for sure:
If you don't want to cut things up, these basically already exist (though not the exact same grip): Surge Nintendo Switch Grip Kit, Joy-Con Grips & Thumb Grips - Grey. They're more for sideways use, though. Maybe we'll see single-player grips soon?
That looks like the right product, but it's sold under a different name (or by a different company) in the US. I bought it as the Surge Nintendo Switch Grip Kit. I've only used it briefly, but I think it makes them a lot easier to hold. The one thing I don't like is that unlike the default wrist strap it doesn't make SL and SR much bigger, but thanks to the general change in shape they're still more comfortable to use than without.
I agree with you completely about sideways Joycons being incredibly uncomfortable. My wife and I were just playing Snipperclips last night, and it's still fun (the game doesn't require speed, so the poor controls don't really matter), but the controllers do not fit in our hands well (and we don't even have big hands!).
I actually just ordered these grips for my Joy-cons: [link]. They arrive Monday...I sure hope they work as I expect them to.
Joycons for 4 players Mario Kart and 2 Players ARMS.
Also there are Joycon Grips for each joycon that has access to all the buttons from Surge.
But if you want the sideways Joycon to be more comfortable, I'd recommend picking up a pair of these
I use these. My friends liked them first time and bought some of their own. The thumb caps had mixed reviews among those who tried it, but they loved the grip itself.
I got these and they should arrive tomorrow, I’ll let you know how they are

I heard good things about these.
For Mario Kart, is it better to go for grips or wheels? I can get two pairs of Surge joy-con grips or 4 Orzly wheels for pretty much the same price. I'm leaning towards the grips but I'm wondering about the side buttons on them, and the reach of the top buttons.
If your planning on playing some multiplayer games, each player with a single joy con, get the the Surge Grip Kit, it's like $12 and makes it so much better using single joy cons.
Those if you're gunna be using singular joy cons for games like Mario kart or snipper clips
Please, people, check these out instead.
Simple. Get this. The grip is amazing and fits larger hands. Also it's cheap and you get 2. [link]
No; I use these third-party grips: [link]
They're great. They make the Joy-cons fit in my hands much more naturally.
These are the ones I got:
My only problem with them is that the trigger buttons on them are pass-through (you push buttons built into the grip that then push the triggers on the joy-con itself), but they are still tiny like the triggers are when holding the joy-con sideways. If you're going to make pass-through buttons, why not make them big, like on the straps? Because of this, and since I plan to eventually have 4 joy-cons for multiplayer games, I also bought these:
Unfortunately, they have yet to arrive as they are being shipped from another country. They look good, though.
Edit: After looking at the grips again, it looks like the first grips I ordered are back-logged on Amazon. The second set of grips I ordered look like they're not getting the greatest of reviews. You may want to go with the ones that 'homohyoid' ordered.
I'll likely try a shorter version and then publish it up for others to modify/print.
These are the joycon shells I have. I like the way they feel, a bit bigger would be nice. I may augment them.
Have you tried these? I haven't but I heard they are alright.
Does this not already exist? [link]
swich grip kit - when you add a joycon in one of these - does it function as a full controller?
i note that you get a pair of grips for the left and right joy con controller so its looks like you have two controllers. do you get full functionality of all the buttons
example of grip kit
or is the standard grip which comes in box a better option which utlised both joy cons as 1 controller
I ended up buying these, maybe use them as a guide? My modeling skills are not good enough to recreate them.

Best Buy and Target has the same colored pairings.
The controller attachment is on Amazon only.
“Wall-E style”? Please detail haha
As for the joycon grips, i bought these and maybe they would be a good asset for you:
Anybody have any JoyCon grip recommendations?
I currently have this set which work fine. My only complaint would be that the trigger buttons are pretty small.
I would like to get a different set for my second joy con (to have 4 grips total) so people have more options to choose from for multiplayer games. Any recommendations?
You could try these. I heard lots of good comments habout it.
