Switch Blockers

Keycap switch blocker for the Cherry MX keycap switch. This lockout snaps over the top of the keycap switch disabling use and creating a surface flush with the keyboard housing. Switch blockers are molded in ABS.

Note that switch blockers were designed to snap over Cherry MX switches specifically. These parts may not snap onto other switch styles including MX replacement style mounts.

Switch blockers will not snap onto a Cherry MX switch with an LED.

SWITCH BLOCKERS ARE SOLD INDIVIDUALLY.

Sublimated Sets are printed on-demand and won't ship "same day" regardless of shipping method chosen.

Works as described.

I needed to block 4 and 6 on my numpad since I repurposed it as an arrow keys. It made the experience better so now I don't end up pressing them.

Works perfectly and stays firmly in place

In my case, I had to disassemble the MX switch as a foundation and remove the shaft and spring.

This switch blocker has claws, and those claws are hooked onto the switch to prevent it from coming off.
This is an extremely nice mechanism.

However, I think it would be difficult to use unless the keyboard is hot-swappable.

Exactly what I was looking for!

I was looking interested in using a 10u layout on a Planck. I learned about these blockers from a Reddit post & they are exactly what I was looking for!

Exactly What I Was After

These are exactly what I was after.

I wanted a way to temporarily cap certain switches, without permanently altering anything.
These fit that bill perfectly.

As other users have mentioned, you need to understand, up-front, that the blockers will clip on to the switch itself, causing it to send a constant signal, which will need to be disabled.

Pretty good

As others have stated, there is a correct orientation for these on the switch. If you don't orient them correctly, they will not sit square. I am using a hotswap board. If you are too, I recommend recommend using a 'dead' switch (i.e. bend the pins or something) and placing this blocker on that switch before placing the switch into the pcb. This approach worked well for me anyway.

★★★★

This is hands down the best set of keycaps I've purchased after getting two more spherical PBT keysets before it from sketchy sellers on Amazon and eBay. The quality is excellent, there is no sign of wear on the engraving after several weeks, etc.

I have purchased both the alpha and novelties + a few single keycaps and I'm super pleased with the design. If you are considering to get this, I highly recommend that you go ahead with the purchase!

I got this set for my first TKL keyboard and it looks great, even better in person than I anticipated.
