Got mine today, great deal!  Not sure I like them, but better than the hodgepodge I had on here before.  Sorry for the poor quality pic...

Also... just ordered clear caps for all the grey keys.  (May only use them on the letters though... bad habit of looking for symbols sometimes.)

I got these keycaps last night but am experiencing a weird problem with them. The Costar stabilizer inserts from my Quickfire Rapid fit so loosely into the stems that they fall out. As a result the long keys are very wobbly, especially the right shift. These are my first non-Esc keys from Signature Plastics, is this how they always make them?

Make a shim out of paper or a piece of plastic bag. Works like a charm.

I don't do the paper shim thing... I drop a dab of my kids school glue in each stem and set it.  I've been doing this for a long time.  It's just enough to hold, but not enough contact space to prevent you from somewhat easily pulling it out.  I've removed/re-glued several times, no problems.

I just end up buying spare stabilizers and attaching them to all my sets... the new ones seem to attach more secure and I dont have to work about swapping in the future.

I'm assuming it also includes all the F keys, and they just didn't show them for space issues in the photo?

Considering picking these up...anyone else have some nice installed shots they wanna share :p

Only the base kit has the other F keys and they are white.

The set direct from SP actually has no F keys.

With the loose stabilizer stems, I wrap mine with Teflon tape. It takes five minutes and results in a perfect fit.

you can only order caps that are in their inventory. if they are, email sales@keycapsdirect.com the 6-digit inventory product code of the keys you'd like to order. they generally don't keep spacebars in stock though :(

you have to get the exact product code from their PDFs. lurk on their site, i don't have the link on hand.
filco/most use 6.25 including leopold BUT if you need a leopold spacebar you need to get what SP calls a universal (6 mount) spacebar and it will only work on Leopold 200, not 500 or 700.

you have to ask for a quote, but generally it's about a dollar a cap. larger caps cost slightly more

Why wouldn't we buy, it's a cheap moogle kit or at the least something to spice up an old board. At $18, that's super cheap
