Switch Tester Plates

LAS 8387 - 2000px.jpg


Switch tester plates are an excellent way to try out different switches or mounting artisans.

They are made from 6mm silky smooth matte clear acrylic, very durable with no flex.

If you're fresh in the hobby, please ask around the community (such as snagkeys or switchkeys discord servers) in order to find out which switches to try. I sell individual switches and blank keycaps listed at the bottom of the page.
