Best switch opener I have tried hands down.
I have never liked opening switches before till now. This is the most consistent switch opener ever, unless you like Khail switches, which this will not work with, since this is only intended for Cherry switches. This is literally perfect for switches that have a tighter housing than others, like the Black Inks V2. I have used the Monstargear switch opener, and honestly, they are quite inconsistent compared to this one. The switches often get stuck in the prongs, and do not open all the way. The Gateron switch opener also will not bend the four prongs of the switch top housing as much as a standard switch opener as you don't have to push down into the switch opener. Highly recommend this as they make opening switches a real breeze. You will cut some time with opening switches.
Great QOL for lubing switches
Excellent improvement on the traditional switch openers. Makes lubing lots of switches at once faster
Saved me a lot of time when lubing switches
Worth the investment
Kind of pricey but the amount of time it’s saved me is worth it. A lot heavier and well constructed than what I imagined.
These are pretty handy.
They’re fine. These were apparently known to break Boba U4T’s, but they didnt do any noticeable damage to mine. I’d just say, open your switches slowly (just barely enough force to get the housings seperate) with these, if you don’t want to break anything.
