Switch Lube Service Info

What is Switch Lubing?

Lubing: Lubing switches is the process of improving the sound and feel of a mechanical keyboard by applying a thin layer of lubricant on the internal components of the switch that create friction. The sound and feel will depend on the lubricant being used.

Filming: Filming switches is when we install a piece of film in between the top and bottom housings. This reduces stem wobble and in many cases improves the sound of the switch.

Clipping: Clipping switches is when 2 of the plastic tabs/legs are cut on the bottom of PCB-mount switches (5-pin) to make them compatible with keyboards (PCBs) that take plate-mount switches (3-pin). Clipping switches offers no additional benefit other than compatibility with 3-pin boards.

Spring Swapping: Spring swapping is changing the spring inside of the switch. Changing your springs will change the weight of the switch. This is great if you enjoy the sound profile and smoothness of a switch, but find it to feel too heavy or too light for regular use.

Where do I ship my products for service?

All supplies being shipped to us for service goes directly to our PO box in Coquitlam. Please address your package as followed:

Omega Keys
PO Box 64783 Rpo Sunwood Square
Coquitlam BC V3B 0H1

We ask that you please provide the tracking number to us so we can keep track of your supplies and ensure there is no mixup of switches.

Can I purchase switches from Omega Keys and lube them before shipping?

Of course! Just add the desired number of switches to the same cart as your lube service order. In the "Switches to be Lubed" section, just leave a note that the switches in your cart are to be serviced. We'll have your order shipped out as soon as we are done lubing your switches.

(Feel free to add any other products to your order to save on shipping!)

Can I purchase switches from other vendors and send them directly to you for lube servicing?

What parts of the switch do you lube?

Bottom Housing: Rails + Center Post


Linear - All Sides

Tactile - All Sides excluding tactile legs*

Spring: Lubed with Krytox 105

*Let us know in the additional information section if you would like the tactile legs to be lubed. Tactility will be affected in these cases.

If providing my own lubricant, how much should I supply?

When supplying your own lube, we ask that at least 1mL of lube is provided for every 100 switches shipped to avoid any shortages. Don't worry about sending too much. All leftover lube will be shipped back to you.

Ex. 50 switches = 1mL,
100 switches = 1mL,
150 switches = 2mL,
200 switches = 2mL.

Can you film my switches with films from your store?

Yes. Just add a pack of your preferred switch film option to the cart of your lube service order, and we'll take care of the rest. Any extra films will be shipped along with your newly lubed switches.

Do import fees get charged on service shipments?

In some cases, CBSA attaches import fees to shipments being sent to us for service. Customer's will be responsible for import fees higher than 10 CAD.

In order to avoid import fees, we highly recommend ordering switches from Canadian Vendors for lube service.

Shipping your own switches? Use HS code 847330 to avoid mislabeled import fees.

Will purchasing faster shipping speed up the lubing process?

No. Selecting faster shipping options does not improve your queue in the line. It will only mean the switches get shipped to you faster.

Due to the amuont of lube service orders we take, we do not offer an express service option and only serve clients on a first-come, first-served basis. Please look at the current additional wait time for lubing turnaround estimates.

Do you lube stabilizers?

No. We do not offer a stabilizer lubing service.

The only exception being the Puca Numpad.
