Also, lmnop. I tried doing what that Korean guy did and didn't work. I pulled for infinity and nothing came off, so I gave up since I didn't wanna' break it again.

Notice in that video it's out of the case.

Not a very helpful video actually. I change my opinion of it.

What do you mean? It does a great job explaining how to remove the keys. Firmly pull up, then wiggle the tabs out. It requires a bit of finesse but its not rocket science.

Maytan, did you take the keyboard out of the case first? (probably not).

Did you remove the key next to it and shift in that direction?

No disrespect to the video creator. Maybe the full instructions were in Korean.

Disagree. It's far harder than it looks.

Of course not (referring to taking it out of the case), my warranty is the only thing standing between my bad luck and my keyboard.

I removed the the 9, 0, -, =, p, [, ], \\, ;, ', Win key, Page key, CTRL key, and then lift both Enter and Shift off the stems and shifted them downward. (while still on the stabilizer) to give me more room. The Backspace key WILL NOT come off of the white caps. I pulled so hard I snapped one, which Das luckily replaced. (replaced the keyboard, that is. They couldn't replace just the piece as they don't stock extra parts.) So when I got the new board (which is my 3rd Das, btw.) It started squeaking (for a 3rd time) after a couple weeks. I gave it a few months to see if it'd go away, and even tried lubing it up fairly liberally with some White Lithium Grease. The squeak seems to have gotten louder if anything.

I tried doing EXACTLY what was done in that video. But I got to a point where I felt like I was going to snap the plastic piece again, so I gave up. Thinking about going for RMA #3, but I hate having to act like the insane person when talking to their support. (At this point, she's probably thinking I'm the biggest perfectionist ever. Considering the 2nd time I sent it back they couldn't even hear any squeaking, while I heard it fine.) In total, I've spent about $180 on this keyboard. 2 RMAs, polish, and grease that did me no good. Quite disappointing, but it's much nicer than anything else I've typed on thus far.

I had decided to replace it with a Unicomp, but I think Buckling Springs will be a bit too heavy for my gaming. (mostly on the pinky) I'm still big on that front, after all.

I don't blame you.

I added a few paragraphs to my previous post, by the way.

You're not trying to remove the white thing. You're flexing the metal thing enough to gently lift off.

Korean instructions are inscrutable.
