Ergo keycap pullers?
« on: Fri, 07 January 2022, 19:58:58 »
Does anyone know of any keycap pullers that put less strain on shoulder/neck muscles, or use alternate motions? I pulled a muscle in my neck really badly a few years ago, and whenever I take the caps off my boards, it uses just the right muscles to make it act up again. Just removing one full set of caps once to clean my board or something is enough to make my neck hurt for most of the next day.

Or even if there aren't any ergo styles of keycap pullers, does anyone have any tips on pulling techniques that would be less strenuous? I usually don't even have to put a lot of muscle into it to begin with, so maybe it's the angle or something.

(Or, maybe my neck injury is just specific enough that it's just something I'll have to deal with no matter what I use to pull caps or how I use it. \_(ツ)_/ )
