How to remove and install new switches


Removing Switches

  1. You will need the Keycap & Switch Puller provided in the package to begin removing your switches. Use the rectangular side of the puller to gently pull and wiggle the keycaps off. Please make sure not to yank the keycaps off as you may damage the switch.
  2. With the keycap off, you should be able to see the switch underneath. Use the tong side of the puller to hook underneath the switch, pushing down onto the two plastic tabs on the top and bottom of the switches. Now you may gently pull and wiggle the switches out. Please avoid yanking on the switch.


Installing New Switches

  1. When you are ready to install new switches, please make sure that the pins on your new switches are straight. Start by lining up the switch pins with the sockets on the keyboard and gently pressing down until the switch glides into place. If properly lined up, the switch should settle in and feel secure in place.
  2. Once you've installed all the switches, you may test the keys with online key-test to see if they were properly installed. if any of the keys are not working. you may have a bent pin on your switch. In this case, take out the problem switch and straighten out the pins with the switch puller then re-install the switch.
