Do these come with washers?
ealiagach
Washers aren't needed, and generally not recommended as over-tightening can happen. If your screw happens to contact two LED pads, a small square cut out of a sandwich bag or saran wrap will suffice.
It's hilarious that people are actually paying $32 for clear gold plated plated stabilizers. You poor bastards.
This is absurd! Where is that V2 branding?! ;D
Hikasaki
They're V2s. :)
are these compatible with the rev6 pcb?
SeaBui
Stabs are universally applicable by size, so long as you're making sure they're PCB and not plate mounted.
lifeonadklein
thanks
Unless I'm missing something, these are cheaper straight from Zeal and will ship much, much sooner

Shipping from Zeal is $15 so it'll actually be $10 cheaper here. Whether $10 is worth getting them in 1-2 days versus 6 weeks is up to you though.
Should you lube these? since my lubbed stabs keep popping the wire out.
Xyzac
Yes, always lube, and also consider bandaid mod.
I heard a rumor that next week there will be a drop of a genuine carbon fiber aero wing for mechanical keyboards. It comes in Cherry red and Cherry blue.

Same thing, around $10 in Chinese market.
$36 + shipping here for a "Group Buy". (lol) Again, Zeal is selling something 3-4 times more expensive. No surprise.

No there's not. I have both. They come from the same molds.
steveowashere
I have both. Please stop.
Genuine question. Why are they so expensive when genuine stabs can be found under $10?
Gati
These are good if not better than genuine stabs. If you know where to look, you can also find these for about half of the cost here.
This would be awesome if it was plate mounted.
Just got my package and it's missing a screw. Make sure you check your orders when you received them

I reached out to their support staff and they provided 2 options: - Replacement (limited availability) - Return with a full refund.
I would contact them asap. Good luck!
whats the difference between this and the one on zealpc?? isnt it going for $30 there???
Dovandovan
There isn’t a difference, however shipping might make one more expensive than another.
ASCII
Yeah there's a 4,5% handling fee and shipping to consider. I think, unusually, Massdrop comes out on top here for shipping to Europe as ZealPC is a bit expensive shipping-wise being in Canada.
I joined the TADA-68 kit drop a while back, and while they're typically plate-mount, I saw several people in the discussion saying that they'd used pcb-mount/screw-in stabs in their builds. Can anyone give me more info on whether these would be a particularly good/bad idea for a first-time builder?
Deklin
It appears the TADA68 PCB has PCB mount stabilizer support, is why people are using PCB mount stabs with it. Our stabs should be compatible with the TADA as well due to this. The only difference between our stabilizers and regular black ones is the surface finish on ours is much much smoother.
Hello @Zeal, will these work with this:
https://www.1upkeyboards.com/shop/keyboard-kits/diy-ljd61up-v2-2-plate-carbon-fiber-black-keyboard-kit/
? They offer what they say are "PCB mounted clear cherry style stabilizers" with it, so it's hard to tell from that.
carnageasada
Yes, it will.
I am building a dactyl- keyboard (Pciture: https://github.com/adereth/dactyl-keyboard/blob/master/guide/README.org#wiring), anybody any idea if I could use the 2u stabilizers in this build?
Tobiasw
Dactyl uses costar stabilizers, so unfortunately no, our stabilizers won't work with that keyboard.
Zeal
Thanks for the fast answer:) Ok, then I will look for costar stabilizers, thanks for the information. And good luck with the drop.
ahh.. they fixed the pricing this time :( last drop you could get 2 sets for $32.99
what about a plate mounted version? i need to replace the horrible stabs on my pok3r le badly

I find it amusing that the photos show these on a Clueboard PCB. They don't actually fit in the Clueboard case, so ... if you plan on using them with a Clueboard, be aware of this fact.
Eventually I hope to have a keyboard on which these will fit, but for now I'm just looking at them wistfully in my parts drawer.
I have a Winkeyless.kr 22mini and I read another comment with someone saying they'd have to sand the acrylic for these to fit. Not sure why. Anyone have any experience with these and a Winkeyless PCB?
VenomC
Acrylic cases usually hug the PCB very closely, especially for winkeyless.kr's designs. If the border is hugging the perimeter of the PCB, there won't be sufficient clearance around the nut and screw to screw in because wkl.kr's PCBs usually only use half circles for the screw in part.
@Zeal Will these work on the Kira by Input Club?
equivocation
It seems the Kira uses plate mount stabilizers, so no, screw in PCB mount ones like this won't work with it.
@Zeal Do these come with rubber washer to prevent shorting on the PCB? https://www.reddit.com/r/mechmarket/comments/89extr/vendor_gmk_screwin_stabilisers_group_buy/

This obviously wouldn't be an issue with your Zeal60, correct?
carnageasada
Never an issue with the Zeal60.
Does anyone know if this is compatible with the Varmilo VA87?
foogle121
Varmilo uses plate mount style stabilizers, so no.
CP layouts need 5 2U stabs, is there any way to get 5 instead of 4?
RaymondLu
Not for this particular drop, unless you pick up the 8x 2u pack. I should be able to hook you up with a custom cart if you order from us direct though.
Does anyone know if these work for the xd60?
Vul_pups
Yes, the xd60 uses pcb mount style stabilizers. Our screw ins are PCB mount + screw in.
Are these... ENDGAME STABS?
Request AMA: A person that owns and used these stabs before. How are these stabilizers compared to your normal cherry stabs?
Load 3 more comments
Yes, definitely.
LevelSteam
Thanks!
Damn, too bad we can't order just a single 2u stab. I just want to try it out before I get a whole keyboards worth of them. Especially at this price.
Smokey249
They're definitely worth the premium for them.
Dang it Zeal! Your stuff is absolutely fantastic and beautiful and SO expensive. I have found other good cherry stabilizers but these are the best. Will you ever sell non gold plated ones for less or would it not change the cost much?

Are these compatible with the k type, because i kind of want to replace those stabs
Silent12
No, the K-type uses plate mount style stabilizers. We do offer Authentic Cherry plate mount stabilizers with gold plated wires on our site though.
So glad these are back! :D
How much did these stabs cost?
Xyzac
i paid $33 for a 4x 2u and 1x 6.25u
catam
Thanks!
