[Solved] Reidea KM06 replacing switches
I have a general question about replacing the switches in the KM06:
The instructions says, that the switches can be replaced. There are also some spare switches delivered with the keyboard.
Can the switches just be pulled from the board or are they actually soldered to it? This is not clear to me from the instructions.
Hi, the switches can be pulled from the board:
1. Remove keycap via pull it;
2. Remove switch via “U" puller (included)
3. insert a new switch and keycap
Please check the attached image
Great! The product page looks good!
Just a short update on this:
I finally replaced the switches in one of my boards with brown gaterons - or, at least, I tried, but the lugs of the gaterons were a tiny bit too thick to fit into the holes on the board.
So I had to open up each and every switch and replace the red innerts of the original switches with the brown innerts of the gaterons.
However, the result is great! I can recommend this setup for office use. Especially in combination with rubber keycap dampeners.
Can someone maybe recommend other switches that will fit directly?
