Did anyone else get mislabeled spacebars? I got two (alpha and beta) that are marked as 6.25u but are both actually 6.5u. You can see below how both are longer than five 1u keys and a 1.25u key but match the row of five 1u keys and a 1.5u key. Am I seeing things?!

This is the strangest issue I've seen in years, don't understand how the under marks can possibly show 6.25u engraving if the keycaps are 6.5u. Please open a ticket showing these pictures as you clearly need a replacement.

Hi! thanks. I have done so. Still waiting on the board that these will be mounted on to be delivered. Have heard it might be an issue of spaces between the keys. Seems weird to me though.

Actually - if anyone else out there hasn't mounted their keys yet, would love to see if they look different than what I've got.

Have you actually tried mounting these? If you have 1u keys flush next to each other, you're not accounting for the 1.5mm clearance between the caps that exists when mounted.

That board is still enroute to me. Will test as soon as possible. Maybe just jitters now, but looked really weird on my desk. Good call.

I face the same issue too. Where do I open a ticket?

There is no issue, the spacebar is actually 6.25u per tests done and will fit keyboards that require a 6.25u spacebar even though it “looks like” a 6.5u when arranged next to other keycaps.

Thanks @MiTo and @boolean-julien for clarifying.
