Replace your worn ones or use them for a DIY project;A hot-swappable keyboard allows you to change the switches by only using a switch puller, so you just pull out the switches and plug in other ones; that's easy.

Some PCBs support hotswap sockets. They're an easy to install and affordable way to swap your switches as your like.

Hot-swappable sockets for keyboard switches are a valuable feature in mechanical keyboards, providing users with the ability to easily replace or upgrade their switches without soldering. These sockets allow for quick and convenient switch swapping, enhancing the customization and versatility of mechanical keyboards. Here's a deeper look into hot-swappable sockets for keyboard switches:

Functionality:Hot-swappable sockets enable users to remove and replace keyboard switches without desoldering. This is accomplished by integrating the sockets directly onto the keyboard's PCB (Printed Circuit Board). Users can simply pull out the existing switch and insert a new one into the socket, eliminating the need for soldering equipment and technical expertise.

One of the key benefits of hot-swappable sockets is their ease of customization. Users can experiment with different switch types, brands, and variants to find the perfect combination that suits their typing preferences and gaming needs. Whether they prefer linear, tactile, or clicky switches, hot-swappable sockets make it simple to swap out switches and personalize the keyboard to their liking.
