Default How durable is the 3DS XL hinge?

I'm so paranoid about whether the hinge for the XL will come out or not and seeing that its a little bit floppy. I want to know that will it easily come out.

I tried to press the top screen from the side and I can notice it coming loose though it still functions normally.

Also how strong is the 3DS XL?

Well, I'm not going to put the durability of my XL to the test to find out for you. xD A bit of loose/floppiness is normal in the hinges, it's nothing to worry about.

I say this in the nicest way possible... I wish you would stop making these paranoia threads, I've never in my life witnessed anyone as paranoid over the 3DS durability as you. If anything, your own paranoia will be the downfall of your 3DS if you continue to fiddle with it and pull it apart to check how it all fits together.
