When you receive laptop keys in the mail from us, the hinges will come attached to the key. We do this to protect the laptop keys during shipment.
Start off by taking the laptop key out of the baggie. Then observe the key and gently remove the tape. Make sure to hold down the retainer clips when taking off the tape, so that the retainer clips don’t break.
Then start of taking a thin blade and putting it in between the key cap and the laptop keys retainer clips. Gently push the hinges upwards so that the hinges (retainer clips) disconnect from the laptop key cap.
If you find that the plastic key clips dont come come off the button easily, then there is another option. The other option is to slowly unassemble the retainer clips from the laptop key cap, piece by piece.
Make sure to fully unassemble the entire key kit before attempting to install you laptop keys onto your keyboard.
