Squeaky space bar on my Ducky

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've got a Duck DK-1087, and my space bar is squeaking. It's getting kinda annoying lol. I pulled the key, and it seems like it's not the actual switch but the two side "dummy switches" for lack of a better term.

What can I do?

I imagine a tiny bit of silicone grease should eliminate that.

I figure the same but how do I get in there, and JUST in there and not everywhere else?

Thanks for the help.

I'll look into these things when I have the time.

I actually just received the 1087 and I'm using it right now. The spacebar doesn't make much noise - in fact it somehow feels cushioned and makes almost no sound compared to the every other clacky/quacky key on the board.

Maybe it will start making noise after some use, so I'll remember this thread for the future.
