Replace the key stabilizers ASAP! I received my kit in September. Put it together and was very dissatisfied with the behavior of the 2U thumb keys. Very sticky. Investigation determined that the key stabilizers caused binding. Removed the stabilizers and the keys performed well. Ordered WASD key stabilizers, both the plate mount clips and the piece that attaches to the key-cap. Installed and these WASD key stabilizers work like a dream. Clearly the holes in the plate were cut to spec for for the WASD key stabilizers, not what ships with the kit. I'm extremely happy I didn't settle for the junk stabilizers that came with the kit. Massdrop should consider dropping the supplier of the current stabilizers and get them from whomever provides them for WASD!

Do you have a link to the WASD key stabilizers you purchased? Just incase I run into the same thing you did.

I have both sets of stabilizers and I can tell you that they are identical. I am guessing the original ones were not seated properly when you used them initially.

@OverKill I too have both sets of stabilizers and can tell you they are not identical. They were seated correctly. The originals are just not quality parts.

Parts on the left came with Ergodox. Parts on right came from WASD.

Lest there be any confusion. All parts shown are unmodified. I only used a hobby knife on one set of brackets.

Meh. I also have both sets. Different or not, they both stick unbeaten my experience.
Just take them off; it's not a big deal.

the "Insert" part of my stabs look like a mix of yours, but tone of color like the WASDs.
