These are solid fully enclosed units that hold switches in securely via a dedicated switch plate. They will simulate a keyboard better than the switch plate option, but keep in mind nothing will be the same as trying out a full keyboard with a particular switch.

Switch Tester Plates

These plates are the easiest way to try out different switches and double as artisan display units.

They're made from a single 6mm thick clear acrylic with a silky smooth satin/frosted finish on both sides that resists dust and fingerprints.

Switches are simply pushed into the slots and will be held in place with friction, and can be pushed out from below. There is no separate switch plate so switches do not clip in, but this does means it's cheaper, easier and faster to swap switches around.

High quality 3M bumpons are pre-applied to each unit.

The total price of a 12 slot unit with switches and keycaps will be around $30-40. Delivery can be done via auspost letter untracked at $2.50 - $3.50 within Australia.
