The Gateron Switch Puller is able to pull switches effortlessly from a keyboard plate to significantly reduce the time spent removing keyboard switches. This newer version fixed reliability issues that were present in the first product release.
Gateron Switch Puller Features:
- 2 Prongs to hold the switch
- MX Button to release the switch
- 1 Gateron Switch Puller
I was able to remove maybe one out of every 10 or so switches. After using other gateron products I was under a different type of impression. The theory and concept are cool, but ending up switching back to a basic metal u-shaped switch remover I'm considering returning this.
Time Saver, Easy On The Fingers
So I've been sitting on this review until I was able to use the puller on a keyboard or two, and now that I have, overall positive experience. You kind of have get a rocking motion a lot of the time, and it's definitely not a quiet thing, but it does its job well and saves your fingers from getting wrecked by using the little clamp things. Definitely recommended if you're going to be tinkering all the time with hot-swap keyboards.
Easy to pull switches!!!
Gateron switch puller
Other than the slight scratch on the plate, which is bound to happen with a normal switch puller, this device makes it so much quicker to remove switches. It also makes it easier to remove switches close to the border of the case. Very good product.
Convenient and very cool
Got this because normal switch pullers are just a bit of work to use (im lazy ik) this works pretty great at just yanking it out with a simple push down, then when pressing on the key on top shoots out the switch from the device. It couldn't get it to remove switches from one of my boards and im not sure why but it mostly works great
