These switches are stuck in my keyboard plate. I probably will be able to remove them, but I have never had this happen before. It's a shame cause the switches sound and feel ok.
I haven't experiences the creak / tick that others have mentioned but they are definitely tight when pushing into alu plates. You can make it fit, but be prepared for your fingers to hurt.
Smooth and deep sounding with lube but can’t fit in my mod tray/metal plates, picture for reference.
Personally got them for frankenswitches regardless:)
The switches are too tight for metal plates and some tighter tolerance plates in general. The switches themselves creak/tick if you wiggle a keycap with any amount of "force". KNCKeys blamed Tecsee, switches are still being sold with no warning.
