Low profile switches exist in various forms, but they used to come with significant drawbacks. Gazzew has worked hard to provide for a switch that's far less compromising than the alternatives, by making a switch that has an MX-compatible footprint, and with dimensions that allow it to be fit into any keyboard that also accepts an MX switch.
The switches listed on this page are prototypes, fresh from the factory. They come in three flavours: linear, tactile and clicky.
Due to the switches being low profile, they give an overall lower height of 2mm. Easy savings!
You can purchase these switches per 10, or in a convenient bundle. Purchasing switches in a bundle will be more affordable than buying them per 10:
- 200 - for multiple keyboards;
- 110 - for a full size keyboard;
- 90 - for a tenkeyless keyboard;
- 70 - for a 65% keyboard;
- 50 - for a 40% keyboard (like the Kyria or Planck).
- 55gf actuation at 1mm travel
- 65gf bottom out at 3mm travel
These switches have the same height as a normal MX switch below the plate, but are lower above the plate. As such, they may not fit some keycap profiles.
Due to the keycaps coming in much closer to the plate, it may clash with screws on the plate-style cases we sell. Assume that the keycaps come almost into contact with the plate – screws will likely be in the way. High profile cases are not affected in this.
The following compatibility list is not exhaustive, not all profiles have been tested yet.
Keycap profiles that definitely work (they sit tall enough to not hit the plate):
Keycap profiles that may work (but may barely hit the plate):
Keycap profiles that won't work (because they sit too low and hit the plate):
