Alps SKCL Brown is a rare linear switch in the complicated Alps SKCL/SKCM series.


SKCL Brown can be differentiated from the tactile SKCM Brown by the presence of an LED cutout.

Another marked distinction between the two is the presence of a typical symmetrical "notched" slider as seen on other early SKCL switches such as Alps SKCL Cream and Alps SKCL Green.

Like most other linear switches, SKCL Brown differs only in weight, and is one of the heavier linear Alps switches that can be found across an entire keyboard (ie, not reserved for special key locations such as the space bar).

Like Alps SKCL Amber and Alps SKCL Striped Amber these were manufactured in Korea under the Goldstar Alps partnership.

The switchplate has so far been found to be grey full-height.[1]
