Alps switches - they're rare for a reason: Its hard to find good caps! The Nexus Slider is the only product on the market that facilities the use of MX keycaps on the elusive Alps switches.
Ever tried SKCM Alps switches? Let me tell you, theyre one of the finest tactile typing experiences on the planet. These switches have always been the exotic at the meetups; Theyre fantastic to type on but a pain in the ass to find caps for.
Those days are over. The Nexus slider and Nexus Housing allow you to convert your favorite Alps SKCM and SKCL switches to MX compatibility.
Sold in quantities of 10
Sliders and housings work on any SKCM Alps switch and Matias
SKCL switches can be modded but require housings to accommodate slider
POM plastic injection molded parts (slider & housing)
Switch openers - 3D printed plastic - Includes 2 pieces, one to open Alps switches, one to open those with a Nexus Slider installed.
Top housings not required for use on DSA & SA profile caps but recommended
Cherry profile (GMK, Dye Sub, etc) require Nexus Housings. If you do not use the housings you may have to file the housings on your switches to clear the caps. Even with housings some GMK caps rub a little when hit off center.
We tested these on SA, DSA and GMK cherry profile. Compatibility with other switch profiles may vary.
