Gateron Switches R2


This Group Buy will end: 10th April 20:00 GMT

The MOQ is 3000pcs total across the three concurrent Group Buys, Gateron R2, Cherry R1, Kailh R1.

This is a Group Buy for Gateron Switches. These are compatible with Cherry MX keycaps. To keep things simple these switches will be for PCB and Plate mount i.e. they have 3 nubs on the bottom not just one, if you are using these for plate mount they will work as long as the PCB has a hole either side of the main stem, if the PCB only has a single hole per switch you can easily cut the two extra nubs of the bottom. NOTE: The transparent top/white bottom(RGB) switches are plate mount only!

Some clarification on the housing types available. The transparent top with black bottom are suitable for both plate and PCB mount with the 5 pin variety, they can accommodate 4 pin RGB LEDs. The transparent top with white bottom, have 3 pins and are suitable for plate mounting, they also have extra room underneath for SMD LEDs to be mounted underneath on the switch side of the PCB.
