How to add weight to a keyboard?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I recently bought a Razer Nostromo gaming keypad ( or whatever its called ) and it works great for what i'm using it for ( non-gaming ) but it is crazy light, and cheap feeling, hell, even my mouse weighs heavier than this thing.

Anyway, I was thinking of ways I could weigh down the key pad without doing anything crazy or attatching it to the desk.

its too light, and tilts when i rest my hand towards the back of it.

I was thinking of buying some regular modeling clay, cracking it open, and kinda shoving as much of it as I could into the empty spaces, I'm just not sure if that would be a good idea or not...
i bet the clay would be heavy enough to weigh it down, and should be easy enough to squish in there to keep it secure, i'm just worried that mositure from the clay could damage the unit, or that the clay would dry out and crack and crumble out ( as i take it to and from work each day ) I thought of silly puddy or sticky tack, but not sure if that would be heavy enough.


Does anyone else have any ideas on what I may can do to add some weight to my keypad?

( i love the nostromo, but for $70, it feels as cheap as a OEM dell mouse, if it didn't help my work performance as much as it does, it would have been back in the box for a refund, also for the price, mechanical keys should be standard, basically, aside from comfort and performance, it sucks )

grab a little bit of dynamat or something similar off of amazon.

open it up, take out the board, and put the dynamat or whatever on the bottom of the case (stick it to the plastic on the inside of the bottom)

but make sure metal doesnt touch the board when you put it back in. may want to clear coat the dynamat (if that is what you get) with shellac or something to make sure.
