    • Inspect the metal pins at the bottom of the switch to see if they have been bent out of shape.

    • A working switch should have straight pins that fit into the circuit board. If the metal pins are bent, straighten them by hand or with pliers/tweezers.

    • If one tab unlocks and the other tab does not, reset both sides and try again.

    • Alternatively, wedge a spudger underneath the first tab and unlock it slightly.

    • Wedge a spudger underneath the second tab to unlock the top housing.

    • You may have to reset the switch and try again several times.

    • During disassembly, the top portion of the switch may fly off due to the spring underneath.

    • If you are replacing the switches that the keyboard comes with for aftermarket switches, be aware that not all aftermarket switches will fit into this keyboard. Since this keyboard uses Outemu hot-swap sockets, it will only accept switches with smaller pins.

    • In the photos, the switches on the left are compatible with this keyboard, while the switches on the right are not compatible with the keyboard due to their slightly thicker pins.
