 Please view this video for instructions on how to replace Gamma Zulu keycaps.


  • Using a key puller, place the key puller on top of the switch and press down until it latches to the bottom of the keycap. Pull straight up, and voila! The keycap is removed.

  • It's important to note that you do not pull the keycap off of the switch at an angle. The prongs of the keycap are inserted into the switch itself when it's seated - which means if you remove the keycap at an angle, you can potentially break the prong inside the keycap. Always remove the keycap by pulling the keycap straight up from the switch.

+ Simply place the keycap back on top of the switch and press down until seated.
