Switch & LED Hot Swap Connectors

  • Solder no more! Turn your PCB into hot-swappable keyboard!
  • These are sold INDIVIDUALLY! You will need 2 per switch and 2 per LED. A keyboard with 65 switches and LEDs will need at least 130 for switches and 130 for LEDs  – You may want to order extra in case you drop and lose some.
  • Minimum order quantity of 20
  • PLEASE NOTE: These don’t fit all boards! Please read below for an ongoing compatibility list.

Description

These are sold INDIVIDUALLY! You will need 2 per switch and 2 per LED. A keyboard with 65 switches and LEDs will need at least 130 for switches and 130 for LEDs.


PLEASE NOTE: These don’t fit all boards!


To install them:

1. Set the connector in the corresponding hole
2. Using a blunt/wide tip on your soldering iron gently rotate and push the top of the connector into th
3. Get the connector as flush as possible

Your soldering iron needs to be on. It doesn’t need to be overly hot: standard solder melting temp of 200C.

I suggest you do all of your switches first and then LEDs. The connectors are different and you don’t want to confuse them. I also suggest you buy extra! These will be forever gone if you drop them.
