Retooled BOX switches are still cracking keycaps.


I would like to report that the retooled BOX switches are still cracking keycaps. I put them in a vintage Wyse keyboard, thinking they were fixed, and while the caps went on smoothly, but after a while they cracked and split open many of the keycaps.

The new switches still have the nubs on the stem, which put uneven pressure and stress certain parts of the keycap mount, causing them to crack.

You need to fix the stems... again...

Please make them without ANY nubs and EXACTLY to Cherry specs. Your company have made MX compatible switches in the past, that had proper cross mounts and never cracked keycaps, just make the BOX stems exactly that size.
