How to Make Membrane Keys that Can Be Swapped in Your Pocket
When you’ve got the right membrane, it’s all you need to make the best of your keyboard.
A membrane key is just that, and the keycap can be swappable to change the shape and feel of your keys, whether that’s through a switch on the back of the key, or even the front.
Here are some tips on making your membrane keys work with your computer.
Make sure your membrane keycap has a plastic cap on the side.
This is a critical step in making your keycap work.
It’s important to make sure that your membrane has a good seal around the keycaps so that you won’t accidentally bump into it.
It also helps to make it waterproof and not get damaged during transit.
You can also check with your keyboard’s manufacturer to make certain that the key cap has a rubber-band-type closure, like this one on the Razer Stealth.
Use a switch.
If you’re looking to swap out a membrane key, you can use a switch to swap in the membrane key.
A switch lets you control the membrane by turning it on or off.
You’ll also need to be able to control the key with a keyboard-style mouse, which is easy to do with the Razer Hydra and other switches.
Don’t forget to make a seal around your keycaps.
The membrane keycaps have a nice little rubber-bands-type seal around them that helps prevent the membrane from slipping off when you use your keyboard on the go.
If your membrane caps get damaged while you’re typing on your laptop, that could damage the key caps as well.
Use your membrane as a keyboard.
You want to make your membrane switchable to use as a keycap.
This will make it easy to swap it out for a new membrane, and will keep it from getting damaged during transport.
Use multiple switches.
You don’t have to use every switch in the set.
Some keys are much easier to use with a switch than others.
If a membrane switch is too big for your keyboard, try swapping it out with a smaller switch, such as a Razer Hydra.
And if you want to switch out the membrane with another membrane, you’ll need to switch it with another keycap, or use a different keycap for that purpose.

Make your membrane backlit, too.
Many people swear by backlit membrane keys.
However, it may be better to stick to backlit keys for a while and see if you get the desired feel from your keyboard before moving on.
