Would you happen to know where I can purchase a switch opener like that (or any one for that matter that will open up Halo True/Trash Panda/Mint Panda switches? been stuck with my switches for a while and have missed out on all the switch openers.

I 3D printed that one off a design from thingiverse, but I also got an aluminum one that works really well from kbdfans. I know people sell 3D printed ones on Ali and Shapeways, this is the same as the one I printed https://www.shapeways.com/product/ZLA6MAESE/switch-opener I really recommend a small aluminum one like on kbdfans, it has both types of openers that close up with magnets and feels very solid. I'd have to look what it costs but it was only $11-15. Though the larger v2 switch cracker model looks cooler, I am not sure of it's actual benefits other than manybe being a bit easier to open initially. I'm less afraid of breaking it and it feels more accurate. I had to do some sculpting with my 3D printed one to get it to work perfectly but that just may be my printing skills. You shouldn't be disappointed with either, but just be careful if using an exactly blade to sculpt the plastic one if needed.
