How can I remove the keycaps from my mechanical keyboard?

Why would you want to take off your keyboard keys?

There are several reasons you might need to remove your keycaps, such as cleaning your mechanical keyboard or upgrading to a more stylish set. To do this efficiently and safely, a keycap puller is highly recommended. This tool allows you to detach keycaps without risking damage to your switches or the keyboard itself.

A simple guide to removing your keyboard keys:

  1. Ensure your mechanical keyboard is unplugged.
  2. Use a keycap puller (while you can use your fingers, it's not advisable) to securely grip a key.
  3. Carefully pull upward on the keycap until it detaches.
  4. Remove the keycap from the puller.
  5. Repeat this process for all keys, making sure to keep them organized and in the correct order.
