Just got these in the mail yesterday from the last time they dropped.
-Installed first on Masterkeys PRO L, browns, DSA caps; reduced noise considerably and feel is not mushy whatsoever. Travel distance felt fine too. Yay! -Installed next on Leopold FC660m, blues, stock caps; moderate noise reduction with instant mush feeling. Travel distance noticeably reduced. Just felt bad. Removed right away!
Misc stuff: -Had no issues with the install tool; just applied even pressure until I heard a small "click." Occasionally, only one side would actually catch and I had to reapply pressure but did not break a single clip. -Removing clips was very easy. Barely any force required to unhook. The plastic has enough flex without being brittle. That said, go slowly with as little force as possible to avoid damage. -Sometimes the tool picked up two clips at once so double-check before pressing down. -Once, I picked up a clip not realizing the hole for the LED was facing the wrong way and tried to press it down anyway. Nothing bad happened; again, just double-check.
Overall very pleased with the quality and performance of these on the Masterkeys PRO. Mileage may vary depending on what kind of caps you have.

I installed these on my Phantom TKL I built (steel sandwich plate setup, gateron browns.) The sound is less for sure...but travel feels pretty reduced. I don't mind the noise of my keyboard though...these were to appease the wife, but she's used to the sound of my keyboard now.
Guess I should sell these things now. Not really a fan of them, I think.

Did you get the PCB mount or the plate mount versions? The Leopold FC660M looks like a plate mount to me... Thanks!

I got the plate-mounted. 660m is plate and required a bit more "force" to snap in place.
