do holtites work with this?
Yes. Though for the \| key, I'd recommend soldering the switch as it's only a half pad due to the ISO stabilizer hole cutting into it. Holtites won't be able to fit in that particular switch.
I wonder if perhaps the Mill Max "holtite" sockets (part # 0305-2-15-15-47-27-10-0) would work better than regular holtites. These must be soldered on, but once they're in, they should fit even more securely to the PCB than regular holtites.
It could work, but if you're soldering anyways, might as well just solder the switch. Granted, if you value the hot swap feature, it's also another option. However most people looking into hot swap don't/prefer not to solder.
