Wiimote Straps: Nintendo will swap the lot

Lucky Wii owners take note - Nintendo have issued a recall affecting all units worldwide... for the strap which tethers your wrist to the Wiimote controller.  It seems (as if you haven't heard) that quite a few people have been accidentally flicking their Wiimotes off into the TV/wall/face of the cat, and so keen to avoid any more feline mangling or legal wrangling Nintendo are biting the bullet and swapping the safety straps.

Simply fill out the online form and they'll ship you a new one; you're then free to bin the old strap, as they don't want it back.
