Has anyone had experience with the Zalman km-k500 Mech keyboard? I can find some online in Korean layouts but never owned a Zalman product myself

So I am stuck at a little dilemma here. I cant access youtube at work and I am trying to add o-rings to my Backspace, Caps Lock, Enter, Spacebar and Shift keys but they all have that metal stabilizer attached. What is the best way to remove those keys?

It's imitation Cherry MX Switches, not the real thing. 

 

For the price, it's not awful; but it's not the same as what most folks rave about.

I just ran into that problem today with my new KB, I just used needlenose pliers to bend one side of the metal wire enough to release one side of the key, then the other side can be removed without issue.



Also, have some more pics of my Choc Mini (taken with my PotatoCam™) biggrin.gif

Ah thank you, I will try that I am sure we have some around here. I wish I could see your keyboard but image shack is blocked lol.

pull up and take the key off the switch so only the stabilizer is holding it, then take a small stick-object (screw driver works) and push the key to one side and the metal bar to the other side, if you put a little force it should come free

Thanks, I would rather have the real thing as thats what I am used to. I need to find a keyboard that has Korean keys, its unfortunately a must have for me at this point.

Would you happen to have any suggestions? Even if I have to buy the keys separately I wouldnt mind lol

Alright that worked out pretty well, thanks for the input. I now all of my keys have red o-rings under them. So much quieter with the rings and I love the stiff feeling the reds provide.
