Here's what I suggest for tight stems. Run the cap under the hottest tap water you can for a minute or so. Once heated it'll be a little flexible. Dry it off and gently work it onto the switch stem. Once it cools it'll hold the new shape quite well.

Top notch info, saving that for a rainy day.

The rain probably won't be hot enough to heat the cap.

He's in LA, sure it will be.

I bet the rains down in Africa would do
I hate that song.

It's not fond of you either I'm sure.

Keyboards / Re: Type of keycaps to fit Ajazz AK33?
« Last post by Kevadu on Tue, 22 May 2018, 18:07:58 »
You got me thinking, and it might have actually been a different keyboard and not my Ajazz (I did have a similar Chinese one at the time) I was having that problem with... However, it was indeed the problem I've described.
The plate was raised way above the switches and mounting "normal" keycaps was possible but it would not actuate due to the "skirt" hitting the plate and preventing further travel of the raised stem.

I don't know what keyboard you're talking about but that sounds really weird...

Most keyboards have plates, even if they're not a floating key design where the plate doubles as the top housing they're still there.  MX switches (assuming they were MX switches...) are designed to mount into plates in only one position.  If they somehow positioned things so that the plate was above the normal mounting point then the plate wouldn't actually be doing anything because it wouldn't be holding the switches in place.

So either:
1. It was a super-thick plate that extended significantly higher than a normal plate.  But why would anyone do that, especially cheap Chinese keyboard makers since it would increase material costs with no real benefit?
2. They weren't MX switches at all (could still have an MX-compatible mount though).  But even then most switches are designed similarly so I don't know what they would be...
3. You're misremembering something.
