Cherry MX Keycaps

Please view this [video](https://youtu.be/4Gn9LxO46JU) too how to replace Cherry MX keycaps. Here are some pointers: **---------------------------------** ***REMOVING THE KEYCAPS*** **---------------------------------** + **When removing keycaps from keyboard with lighting, please make sure the keyboard is unplugged so that the LED backlights don’t blind your eyes.** + **Place the keycap puller on top of the keycap and make sure that when you pull up, you pull up straight vertically. Don’t wiggle it or remove the cap from an angle.** + **For keycaps with stabilizer bars, first pull up the keycap to loosen it. Then push the keycap to one side to remove the keycap peg from the stabilizer bar on one end, then push it the opposite way to completely remove the keycap.** **---------------------------------** ***REPLACING THE KEYCAPS*** **---------------------------------** + **For most of the keys, just align the keycap over the switch, and push down.** + **For keycaps that need the stabilizer, first insert the pegs in, with the long edge of the peg pointing to the top. Then insert the keycap by angling the peg on one end and hooking it into the stabilizer bar. Continue pushing on this end, with enough force to insert the other peg to the other end of the stabilizer bar. Now align the keycap over the switch, and push down.**
