Thire are two types of stabilisers - Cherry and Costar.  Costar have small pieces that stick in the keycap, Cherry are bigger and stay attached to the board.  If Cherry they could be attached to the plate or the PCB.  You can buy them all but only you know what you're looking at.  If in doubt which you need post a picture :)

Is this what you need?

https://www.wasdkeyboards.com/cherry-mx-keycap-stabilizer-insert-2pcs.html

Those are Costar, the review says 'Costar style'... If you swap both ends and use the original wire they would probably work :thumb:

Unfortunately it looks like this board has a 6u spacebar so the standard wire probably won't fit, need to measure the distance between the two stab holes on the keycap.
