Alps SKCL Grey, or grey Alps, is a linear switch in the "complicated" Alps SKCL/SKCM series. The switch is heavier than Alps SKCL Yellow, and is the replacement switch for Alps SKCL Cream. This switch was commonly used in Zenith keyboards for the space bar.

This switch was present in the 1994 Alps catalogue.



The switches below come from a batch of NOS switches from an unknown source; some switches have the expected Alps logo on the base, and some do not. From the top, these variants look the same; only the base is affected by this mistake. White Alps has already been seen without a base logo, and these pine grey switches also exhibit this characteristic.
