Why do you need lubed switches?

  • Crave for better typing sound and feeling
  • Reduce friction, especially in the glider and spring
  • Definitely change the game, best way to explain is to try it on!

Viscosity and typing feel

Viscosity of the lube significantly affect the typing feel. Thicker lube can reduce the sound more significantly but the viscosity could affect the actuation force slightly. Thinner lube takes the middle, having the advantage of lubing and not affecting the actuation.

Note: We will do thin lube on orders, unless customers make their thick lube request in the check out window.

Note on orders

  • All switches are freshly lubed upon orders.
  • Allow few days for us to arrange time for the lubing and testing. No immediate shipment can be made. Thank you for your patience.
  • All switches are hand-lubed, it is impossible to guarantee all switches are identically lubed. Slight difference may exists between switches. But of course we will test them one by one to reduce this difference.
