Switch Replacement

  • Use either switch puller to pull the switch out or a flat head screwdriver or similar tool.

  •  If using a switch puller, pull the switch out straight, not at an angle, to avoid bending the pins.

  • If using a flat head screw driver gently pry the bottom of the switch out first, then the top, this helps avoid bending the pins.

  • Place new switch into the switch plate, try to make sure the pins are aligned with the hotswap pocket.

  • Don't use more force than necessary, it can help to wiggle the switch as you put it in to make sure the pins align correctly.

  • If you bend a pin, don't panic, pull the switch out and either using your fingers or a pair of needle nose pliers to bend the pins back into place.

  • Replace one switch at a time, rather than taking them all out at once. This allows the PCB below to maintain full integrity as you replace your switches.
