Keycap Compatibility

Our keycaps are designed for our own keyboards, but they are also compatible with many other Cherry MX mechanical keyboards. Please follow these guides to determine if our keycaps are compatible with your keyboard.

Keycap Size Chart

Different rows on the keyboard have different height and slope profiles. Here's a general layout of our keycaps on our keyboard.

Keycap Height

Most Cherry MX keyboards use the same height profile as us. This is sometimes referred to "OEM" profile. There is also a lower profile style known as the "Cherry" profile.

Spacebar Compatibility

1. Length. Our spacebar is roughly 118mm (4.65in) long measured from the bottom of the keycap.
2. Stem spacing. Our space has the mounting stems spaced 50mm apart with the middle stem in the center.

Modifier Compatibility

Many keyboard companies change the layout of their modifier keys. Below are the most common modifier layouts.

Green = Compatible.
Yellow = Not standard, but available upon request.
Red = Not compatible. Size not available.

Caps Lock Compatibility

Check that the stem in centered on the keycap. Some keyboards may use an off-center stem.

Enter Key Compatibility

We do not carry the large "L-shaped" Enter key found on some keyboards such as SteelSeries 6gv2 and Zowie Celeritas.

Right Shift Compatibility

Keyboards that use the large "L-shaped" Enter key will typically also use a shorter R1 1x1.75 right shift key to make space for an extra 1x1 key for the "\ |" backslash/pipe key. We provide an option to adjust for the backslash key, but not the right shift. The R1 1x1.75 is currently available in limited colors as a single blank keycap.

LED Backlighting Compatibility

Our keycaps will not allow light to shine through the legends on LED backlit keyboards.
