The Nintendo Switch's clever design allows you to play the handheld console on your television, but the device can be easily scratched if your device is without a front cover. Some may choose to go the screen protector route, but if you prefer to keep your system naked, a Switch front cover in the form of a dock sock does the trick. Here are the coolest-looking ways to protect your Nintendo Switch screen.
