Pack size

This is the latest evolution of Gateron's classic MX switch line. The KS-9 switch body has a cutout at the rear, designed to accomodate surface-mount LED lighting, for boards which support RGB. They also fit perfectly well on boards without RGB, of course.

The yellow edition has a light-moderate actuation force (50g), with a linear action.

The blue edition has a slightly heavier actuation force (60g), and has a clicky, slightly tactile action.

Which lube and films?

We recommend Switch Lube 205g0 for the stem and housing, and Switch Lube 105 for the spring.  It is not uncommon for this switch to suffer from high variation in fitment between the top and bottom housing. Using switch films is highly recommended for this product.
