Keycaps stabilizers confusion
« on: Sun, 11 February 2018, 11:45:54 »
In this site ( https://www.novelkeys.xyz/product/cherry-stabilizers/ ), it says that default 60% and full layout keyboards need 2U and 6.25U stabz. I am interested in 60% keyboard for now. But 60% have only one key 2u width, so why it says it needs 4 ? Does, for example, left shift key (2.25U) on default have 2u stabilizer support and same with 1.75U keys ?


 P. S. I am new to MK, never used one, but want to know more.

You need a stabilizer on every key equal or greater than 2u. So you need four for shifts, backspace and enter key, unless you're splitting them.
