I'm new to mechanical keyboards, and this is my first one. I want to prevent my stabilizers from making the clacking sound but I'm not sure how to with this keyboard. I've tried to remove the stabilizers but they wouldn't come out, asked a friend and he said they might be mounted to my PCB. Is this the case with this keyboard? If not, I'm not sure how to take out the stabilizers, but if so, is there a way around it?
Thanks in advance
The stabilizers are plate mount. There is a little tab that you will need to depress in order to remove the stabilizers. I often use the tip of a ballpoint pen or a small flathead screwdriver to depress the tab.
My personal routine to prevent stabilizer rattle:
-disassemble the stabilizers
-add PTFE grease (e.g. Superlube) inside the plungers into which the wire inserts
-reassemble the stabilizer
-use a toothpick to apply a little PTFE grease to the contact point where the wire clips into the stabilizer housings
-repeat for all stabilizer assemblies
