Solutions to Loose/Brittle Keycaps?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi! I've been using the Logitech G710+ for a couple years now, and over that period many of the keycaps have gotten loose and/or broken. Personally I find that coating the inside of the cap with Gorilla glue tightens them well and also fixes the broken ones quite nicely.

However, I'm a bit concerned over the longevity of this method. What do you guys do with loose/fragile keys?

I had the same issue, it was so bad that vibrations alone could cause a few to work loose.

Ended up getting replacement keycap set at massdrop.

I thought i saw posts of peole using a layer of saran wrap over the cherry shaft..

plasic wrap over the cherry stem works well for wobbly caps.

but really, the stock keycaps on most keyboards are just crap.

Everytime I buy a new keyboard I just oder a set of keycaps along with it to replace the stock ones.
