Well, these suck. Would not recommend them. Spend a tiny bit more and get something better. Zeals are really good but expensive.
I originally had the black Cherry plate-mount stabilizer and went to replaced them with these stabilizers into a B.87 EX X2 PCB. They do not fit. They are TOO SHALLOW, meaning the expansion tab cannot extend down through the board. They are like 0.2 mm too shallow. If you press hard to get the stabilizer to lock, then they break because they are BRITTLE. I absolutely do not recommend these for the B.87 EX X2 and probably all other Winkeyless PCBs, too. Too brittle and too shallow.
can anyone link me a black colored pcb on massdrop?
I want 6u stabilizer! There are several pcb boards that support 6u spacebars but it is impossible to find 6u stabilizer !
At the end of the day, its always worth spending more on the zeal clear stabilizers which have no rattle to them

If they're the same that I've tried they sit super thight in the keycap and I've managed to pull out two of them, so I now have to desolder my whole board since the switches are plate mounted.
Owii
The stabs I got from these a long tike ago rattle like crazy. Zeal stabs have no rattle along with genuine cherry ones
https://mehkee.com/products/cherry-stabilizers?variant=38592278863 I think these and massdrop ones are the same, aren't they? Too bad they're out of stock, but I think the price says everything.
If these clear stabs are the same ones that I've tried I'm not sure that I would recommend them. They sit super tight in the keycaps and I've managed to pull out two of the stab stems while pulling my keys. If you are planning to buy them I would suggest you first sand them a bit so that they don't sit so tight.
Again, buy these from ebay for cheaper price and faster shipping. I think I can pretty much get 2 sets and even have left over for this price.
Find some stabilizers, cool I think, I need some of those. Look at comments from last drop. Absolutely NO ONE is happy with these. Why re-drop?!
TelFiRE
These transparent stabs aren't bad, it's just that they'll need you to hands on a little more lubing them and sanding the cross down a little. If you want some worry-free snap-on stabs take the black ones....
the worst stabilizers i ever had... do not buy!
I got the clear PCB mount Cherry stabs. I have no idea why anyone would make a super-rough moving surface on stabilizers. Would not buy again.
anyone wanna buy my 60% with gateron greens and these stabs from last round?
It's SUPER loud if that's what you're into.
TheAdamizer
lol
TheAdamizer
exactly what board is it with what options? I'd take it, looking for one. happen to LOVE my gat greens.
As someone already said, the text says Plate-Mounted Costar stabilizers, while the pictures show plate-mounted Cherry style stabs. Please Massdrop, take some relevant pictures from anywhere. Don't give incoherent, misleading information.
Anyway, I requested this drop, but I didn't read the comments about quality before. After reading them, I've decided I'll stick to my usual sources.
Qumass
I contacted support about the misleading images, apparently I didn't do a good enough job at it because I got an image back of the "Note: At checkout," box with the "or" highlighted.
I've sent a much clearer response, may have been a wast of time though -_-
I kept hearing good things about Massdrop, so I decided to sign up and bought some Gateron Switches. After my two dealings with support (reporting the images, and asking a shipping question on the switches), I don't see what the hype with this site is.

It's just the only place to get a lot of cool stuff, sometimes that you can't get elsewhere. Massdrop the only sizeable organization that is willing to run group buys, taking on large amounts of risk. But they are definitely understaffed, don't give enough attention to individual buys, and tend to put out a lot of crap that isn't a good deal at all in with all the good deals. You also have to be careful about buying retail stuff. It's rarely much cheaper than Amazon though it takes months to ship. But, for the actual community run group buys, Massdrop is really great to have around. Like I said, they take on a lot of risk for us, and Massdrop is an entry point to group buying which allows you to 100% trust the entities running it as far as being competent, mostly efficient, and not running off with your money.
I just bought 2 packs of these stabs on ebay for $5.5 each and I don't think the shipping would take longer than this drop. Just saying. Oh free shipping btw.

some of massdrops deals are great, some are shit and better to buy elsewhere (amazon, ebay, your next door neighbour, etc).
mazzafox
and 81 people still fell for it
If anyone would like to get these sooner, I have an extra set of the transparent PCB-mounted Cherry Stabilizers available
Are these pre-clipped? Guessing not, can't exactly see from the photos.

I can confirmed what Kac say. Nothing helps........ There is my video if you are interested.

First 10 sec is original cherry stab. 1:00~1:10 is this PCB mounted clear stab from the last drop.
The rattle can be further reduced with a small small bit of strategically placed cotton from a cotton ball.
As others have already warned, these rattle a lot and are very noisy. I discovered a mod which works for me that others might find helpful. Place a small 3 layer stack of gorilla tape under the stabilizer bars to put a slight amount of upward pressure on them. The difference in feel is night and day.
My other complaint is that on my spacebar keycap, the stabilizer became stuck in it and pulled out of the stabilizer body completely with little force when trying to change key caps. This was VERY difficult to put back together after the keyboard was already assembled.

I think that depends on the construction of your keyboard and switch plate. On my Clueboard the switch plate has a large opening around the space bar switch for example which makes this possible. If you can access the stabilizer bar with perhaps tweezers, you might be able to "slide" the tape under it. You just need something to put gentle upward pressure on the bar to keep it from rattling and slowing the bounce of the posts just enough (but not too much).

Mine has just enough for stabs darn, still I can try stuffing something, thanks!
I had no need for these when drop was active now I do. Did anyone order an extra set in clear? Costar preferred.

Now the world is just messing with me because the drop is back.
If you got them from ZealPC, don't worry too much as they are miles better than these!

Finally got around to using these. They are absolute garbage. Incredibly rattly. So bad that I wouldn't want to type on the keyboard. Massdrop should not sell these again. Anyone buying these should beware.
Nevaenuf
I found a way to stop the rattle on my PCB mounted ones. I cut tiny pieces of gorilla tape stacked together and placed them under the stabilizer bars. One in the middle for the shorter ones and one near each stabilizer on the space bar. Rattle is gone.

I had a similar solution as well, but I was putting together a Duck Blackbird I got on a geekhack group buy. Really high quality build. There was no way I was going to tape the stabilizer bars on this keyboard. Just the thought of it made me angry. So, I bought a set from ZealPC and all's well. Won't buy these again. Just can't put garbage on custom keyboards when spending so much cash.
Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Transparent + Black Stabilizer Pack and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will send the bulk shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey where our warehouse team will break it up into individual orders and ship them. The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 1/4.
We will keep the group updated throughout the fulfillment process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 12/2.

Are the plate mount ones Cherry or Costar. There's a difference, right? The ones pictured look like Cherry plate mount.
djensen47
This drop is available again and I have the same question.
I'm after the plate mount pictured. It appears to be Cherry, but the description indicates Costar. Has Costar started using this design? (if not the misleading pictures should be removed)
So these would work as a replacement for the stabilizers for a WASD (CODE) keyboard? Mine have those clip-style snap-in ones for the plate and the stabilizer inserts don't fit in my GMK caps without some workarounds.
I keep asking the same question - can anyone from the community or from Massdrop confirm if these will / won't work for the thumb cluster of an ORIGINAL Ergodox? Thanks!
ddlittlejohn
As far as I know you can only install Costar plate mounted stabs if you already assembled your Ergodox (which you probably did, since it's an original Ergodox). But if you only need four 2u stabs you should probably search somewhere else, like I'll do.
schwarzgrau
This is handy information, thanks a ton!
Can anyone vouch for these stabilizers? I'm looking to replace the wobbly ones that came with my Red Scarf, so it's important that they're good
Jakali
I got these the last time they dropped and they are SOOOOO rattly
MacGruber117
Thanks. I'll consult the R/MK subreddit to find out where to get quality stabs.
I could really use these in 6.0u plate mounted Costar. Any thoughts at additional sizes?
Can we get some clarification on the shipping?
When I last joined this drop, I was charged $3.75 to ship two sets of stabs. In this current drop, for the same 2 sets I'm getting charged $7.75 in shipping...
