Nothing can ruin Switch games like your controller subtly registering movement without you touching it, which is why Joy-Con drift has to go. While Nintendo hasn’t quite nailed a solution in its first party controllers just yet, other companies have solid solutions. In fact, these effective Hall effect Thumbsticks Joy-Con joystick replacements are an excellent way to mitigate Joy-Con drift on your controllers, and they happen to be on sale for Amazon Prime Day this year.

The Hall Thumbstick Switch Joystick Replacement costs $21.36 on sale (normally $26.70) and comes with two joysticks, exactly what you need to make sure neither of your Joy-Con drifts again.

The Switch joystick replacements work with any model of Switch and Joy-Con and are designed to replace the joysticks that come standard on the Nintendo controllers. Once you have the replacements, all you have to do is swap them into your controllers and voila: no more drift.

Prime Day also has a ton of other great gaming accessory deals, including the LG 1440p gaming monitor, Sony Inzone H9 headset, Samsung 512 microSD card, the Backbone One controller. In addition, we’ve rounded up the best gaming mouse, gaming headset, and gaming monitor deals — plus all the free games and great video game deals to take advantage of this Prime Day!
