Alps SKCC Black is a rare switch in the Alps SKCC series. The difference between this and Alps SKCC Grey is not known (see also Alps SKCC Tall Black).


SKCC Black is a switch of uncertain characteristics. Examination of photos indicates that it has a shorter keystem, of around 4 mm instead of just over 5 mm. Photos of the Monroe calculator in which it has been discovered corroborate this, as they depict low-profile keycaps. The keystem itself may also be a bit shorter, as it lacks the small protrusion on the top.

Travel appears to be intentionally reduced by around half a millimetre by lengthening the posts at the bottom of the slider.


None to date.
