This means that once the switches are soldered onto the PCB, they are permanent and cannot be easily removed or replaced. It is also a lot harder to tune your stabilizers as if you realize last second that your stabilizer isn’t properly tuned, you have to desolder the switch just to fix it. Soldering your keyboard can potentially lead to damaging your PCB if you aren’t careful or don’t really know what you are doing so I recommend practicing first before attempting it on a more premium board.

This method requires inserting the pins of each switch through predrilled holes in the PCB, and the application of molten solder on the pins to anchor them to the board. These hot swap PCBs support Mekanisk Fjell (without middle standoffs), Mekanisk Klippe T (without middle standoffs), and other 4-point tray mount keyboards. With a hot swappable PCB, you can customize your keyboard with different switches as often as you like, making it a popular choice among mechanical keyboard enthusiasts.

With hot swap sockets, your keyboard will be up and running in no time, there is no soldering needed. North-facing per-key LEDs and pins for underglow compatibility to really make your keyboard and switches shine. It is not possible to use a hot swap PCB for a half-plate build—individual switches are not as strongly attached to the PCB as soldered switches are.

This not only secures the switches on the board, but also makes electrical connections between the PCB traces and the metal pins of the switch. With a hot swappable PCB, you can easily swap out your switches and experiment with different combinations until you find the perfect match for your needs. This makes it easy to change switches and figure out the type of switch that best suits the application.Now some people do say the soldered switches are more secure than hot-swap keyboards, but I have never really noticed this myself. This means that if you want to change your switches, you will need to desolder the old switches and solder in the new ones, which can be a time-consuming and difficult process. The ratings/reviews displayed here may not be representative of every listing on this page, or of every review for these listings. Additionally, since hot swappable PCBs are a relatively new technology, they may not be as widely available as soldered PCBs. One of the biggest advantages of hot swappable PCBs is that they make it easy to customize your keyboard.

That makes it more difficult to implement international layout support at the PCB level, especially if the keyboard also has LEDs. One of the biggest disadvantages of hot swappable PCBs is that they can be more expensive than soldered PCBs. This socket makes it so you can replace switches with ease and have very little risk involved so you don’t have to worry about accidentally damaging the PCB when building your keyboard.

Pressing the switch allows making a contact, transferring the necessary signal to register as an input, eventually triggering a response in the computer. The downside to this is that you are locked to only certain layouts as most hot-swap PCBs do not support more than the layout provided to you originally.
