Somewhat loose space bar keycap

So I hit the left most corner of the space bar on my 60%, probably because how the left pinky is permanently hovering above the capslock as Fn.

Anyways the TEX ADA keycaps seem to be a bit less snug generally, and on the space bar I get this regularly:

Any ideas how to fix this?

Put some tape on the tip of stab stems to make spacebar keycap fit more snugly. I use medical tape made out of hanji but anything will do. Anything that thickens the stab stem tip should work, like a dab of nail polish or crazy glue.

Some kitchen plastic film over the + might work.

Cool caps BTW. :slightly_smiling_face:

Nail polish! The reverse-lube I was looking for :slight_smile: I’ve applied it to the + hole in the key cap so the stem doesn’t become too thick for regular fitting caps. Seems to work fine so far. Will see how it fares through entire work days.

Thanks!

@skepp the film novelty set is great! I’m currently waiting for blank DSA 1u caps for the alphas so the cool ones stand out even more :nerd_face:
