Who was it that said they might have an Mx lock switch for sale?
I have a couple somewhere. Do you just need 1?
Yes sir! Thanks! You’re in nashville right? I could just meet you
No, I’m actually in Memphis. DM me your address and I’ll sent it your way
I also have a few if anyone else needs one.
what are mx lock switches

Hey, do you happen to have any of these switches available still?
I’d be looking for 3-5 or so.
How/where are people acquiring lock switches? Been looking for ages.
Everyone took them - I only have 2 left that I need for builds. Sorry.
They pop-up on eBay and Etsy from time to time.
Pretty sure mouser has them.
Really? I only see the the 21 series switches on Mouser and those are just linear. I thought only the 31Xxx series is locking, such as:
Octopart lists them as unicorns (no verified vendors).
If you successfully order from Mouser please share the part number! 90 cents is a lot better than $5-15 dollars a pop.
Huh, I guess it’s out of stock. Was in stock a few months ago.
Yeah all the remaining retail stock of MX locks got bought up by now. I think it was in 2015 they discontinued them. Then to top it off in 2016 or 2017 someone ran a GB for them & pretty much bought Cherry out of their remaining MX lock stock. Nowadays either paying up for a few or finding a board to harvest them from is about the only ways to get your hands on them unfortunately. @menelkiner I know you are looking for like 3 to 5 of them, but if you can’t find them I do have an extra one I’d be willing to sell. The others I got are either earmarked for future builds or filling their spot in my switch collection.
