  1. Step 01:

    The goal of this step is to determine and then select the hinge model (Plastic Clips under the Key Cap) that matches your keyboard. The best way to find your hinge model is to compare it to a regular sized key hinge (A, S, D Key, etc). If your hinge is exposed, you can use that for comparison. If you dont have a regular sized hinge exposed, you can easily and safely remove a regular sized key cap from your keyboard for comparison purposes.

  2. Step 02:

    To remove a regular sized key cap from your keyboard: 1. Put your finger underneath the top left corner of the key. 2. Pull upwards very gently until you hear a click. 3. Then place your finger underneath the upper right corner of your key cap. 4.Pull upwards until you hear a click. 5. You can now safely remove the key cap from your keyboard inorder to view your hinge type.

  3. Step 03:

    Compare the hinge on your keyboard to the photo of the regular sized hinges on our website. Once you have determined which hinge type (model number) matches your keyboard, simply select the Model number by: clikcing on any photo on that row or by clicking on the circle underneath the hinge model number. Dont worry if you are not sure what size your key hinge is. We will know what hinge size to send you based on the key you select in Part #2 of the ordering process. For example, ENTER key is Large hinge, F10 key is small hinge, and R key is a regular hinge. You just need to tell us the hinge model number and the keys you need, we'll take care of the rest.

    To put the key back on your keyboard, simply lay the key cap back on the hinge, make sure its centered, and gently push the key down until it snaps into place. Thank You!

  1. Step 01:

    In this step you will tell us which keys to send you. Start by selecting the number of keys you need from the drop down menu.

  2. Step 02:

    Specify which key(s) you need. You can type in the Key Letter ("A") or you spell out name of the key you need ( Space Bar Key). If ordering the SHIFT, CTRL or ALT key, please specify if the required key is on the left or right hand side of the keyboard as they can vary in sizes. If you have a long version keyboard and are ordering from a key from the numberpad, please let us know by typing EG: (3 Number pad).
