One of the most common issues you may face when building a modular mechanical keyboard is bent switch pins. These two metal pins, located on the underside of every switch, transfer your keyboard input into a signal for your computer to translate.
Bent switch pins may cause you a minor panic after finally putting together your board because they can cause keystrokes not to register correctly. Worry not - the solution is quick and straightforward, requiring only tweezers, patience, and a gentle touch to get everything back in working order.
