Installing Manuals

(From 1 to 5 steps,because some keyboards of differences,we will add more informations for it,please kind understand the situation for installing.And it will have not the influences for installing.)

1)Find the pcb stabs in package,and install pcb stabs to pcb.After this,check the stabs of installing by the stabs of level in pcb.If you dont know how to do this,can check the video(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D21Ocg9kVsU&t=651s) for pcb stabs of installing.

The step is for the keyboard that have big keys like 2.25u enter/2.75u shift/6.25u spacebar etc,so if your keyboard is air40/ID75 etc all 1u layouts,need not the steps,just to 2 step.Here is some images about the stabs of installing.

If you upgrade the stabs to screw in stabs firstly,can just install it normal by screws.(PCB will have the hole for screws of connection,don’t forget to add the foam for screws of connection.)

2) Fix pcb with plate by screws or switches.First,install four switches for plate of four corners.Second,install more switches for pcb and plate of fixing.

Because some keyboards of structure are different,we give the two ways for pcb and plate of fixing.Here is some images about the switches of installing.

And if you need add foam or lube switches for your keyboard,can add it in before of the steps.

Some keyboards of plates are integrated,so can just use case of top part as the plate for the step.

3) Check the Switches of installing.See whether all switches are in the same level with plate.

4) Fix pcb plate parts with case.We will prepare the screws for pcb plate part with case.You can find the brass stud in case to finish the connection.

For integrated plate of keyboards,plate is the case of top part,so will just use screws fix case top part with bottom.

Some PCBs need use stickers to protect pcb of working with case part,so we provide some stickers for connection places.You can use it when connect pcb with case.

5) Install the keycaps set for your keyboard.

Please note use the right layout for keycaps,like 96 keyboard use the 96 layout keycaps.And some keyboards of layouts is special,so need confirm the keycaps of layouts for keyboards firstly before installing.Of course,all need the mechanical mx keyboard of keycaps.
