Gateron KS-8 series of keyswitches are clones of Cherry MX keyswitches. Instead of the all-translucent cream or all-solid black shell of Gateron KS-3 series, the lower shell is black and the upper shell is transparent. The switches accept four-pin RGB through-hole LEDs. Gateron KS-9 series uses the same clear top, but the bottom is white and designed for SMD LEDs.

They are available in black, red, blue, green, clear, and brown variants like Cherry MX, as well as linear yellow and clear varieties.
