Extra Plastic Stabilizer Insert for keys
Extra Plastic Stabilizer Inserts for keys (Horizontal or Vertical) – need 4 Horizontal stabilizer inserts for the standard layout
4 are included in the price if you order the key set with the keyboard – good for the left shift, backspace, enter, and right shift keys. So you only need to buy these stabilizer inserts if you are not ordering a full key cap set with your order and you don’t want to remove them from your old Model M keyboard (they are tough to remove from the barrels!). The full key cap sets include the stabilizer inserts.
You probably don’t need vertical stabilizer inserts unless you want a 2U vertical Enter or + key for your F77 keyboard (these keyboards are only 3 columns wide so I’m not sure there are a lot of possibilities). You can also get them for your other Model F or Model M keyboards.
Installing stabilizer inserts:
- Install horizontal inserts (white inserts) as pictured in the product photo, with the “ears” on the left and right sides.
- The vertical stabilizer inserts are installed also as pictured, but must be installed differently for ISO Enter! The product photo shows each photo in the “right side up” orientation so for ISO Enter you’d just install the vertical (black) insert 180 degrees rotated from the photo, so that the larger “ear” of the insert is on the left.
Buy 4 of this item if you are “bringing your own keys” and prefer to order new stabilizer inserts. They are often difficult to remove from Model M’s. The photo shows 4 inserts; Qty 4 of this item is required for 4 inserts. Qty 1 only buys one of the inserts!
Note: Small items in the store, like this item, do not ship free unless they are shipping with a keyboard – please contact me for a shipping quotation.
The black inserts are the vertical inserts (for tall keys like ISO Enter, num pad + and num pad 2U Enter) and the white inserts are the horizontal inserts.
