Part 4 - Installing switches and stabilizers

  1. Prepare and tune the stabilizers you need for your planned layout.
    Prepare and lube the switches as well.

  2. For stabilizers that sit loosely such as Cherry clip-in or GMK screw-in, insert the provided stabilizer shims onto the stabilizers, with the side having the shiny rectangle facing up. For firmer sitting stabilizers such as Durock and Everglide, this is not necessary.

  3. Install the stabilizers onto the PCB. An example showing the shim use is shown.


    Note: Due to a mistake on our end, when using 2.75U shift and 2.25U enter, the inserts may collide. In this case, clip the overlapping bits with a wire cutter or similar. This should have no negative effect on the shims actually doing their job.
    Note 2: Some extras batch 2 units supposedly shipped with KBDfans' stabilizer gasket shims. Although one is flexible and the other is rigid, there should be no difference in functionality or feel. Apply them in the same location (under the stabilizer) as the rigid shims.
  4. Snap in the switches to the plate.
