Switch Tester Plates
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.
Sizes: 2x2, 3x4, 4x6
Material: 6mm matte frosted acrylic
Tester plates support any MX style switches such as cherry, kailh, kailh box, outemu, tecsee, durock etc. Some switches may sit a bit tighter or looser. Tester plates are a bit tighter than mod plates (which can be used as testers).
Material and finish
The acrylic is clear with a silky smooth satin/frosted texture on both sides, that resists dust and fingerprints. This blends into the background so the focus is all on the keyboard.
Clear 3M rubber feet are pre-applied on each unit so it's ready to use after removing packaging. 4x6 units have an extra 2 bumpons in the center to maintain stability.
Each unit comes with high quality 3M bumpons applied and will be ready to use.
Just insert your switch into the plate and chuck on a keycap (which I also sell).
The switches can be pushed out from below.
Note that some switches may fit in tighter or looser. In general, these plates are slightly tighter than switch mod plates in order to grip switches a bit better.
Where to Buy
Switch Tester Plates are currently available from 3 aussie vendors.
Direct purchase is also possible by messaging me on discord. If you are international, I recommend checking out the vendors above as they'll have better rates.

Advanced Switch Testers (legacy product)
In contrast to the tester plates, these are fully enclosed units made from several layers of acrylic and features a 1.5mm switch plate to allow switches to clip in securely, like a typical keyboard case.
They are great as fidget toys to leave around or take to meets. The switches won't fall out because of the switch plate and enclosed nature.
Note: these are currently out of production but I have a few available. Please message to check availbility.
