The switch appears to be constructed as a Cherry MX clone but is smaller in both height and width. It is keycap mount-compatible with Cherry MX except for a shorter stem. It is almost pin-compatible with Cherry MX, except for the top pin being 0.45 mm to the right. Its PCB-mounting pins are only 10 mm apart and slightly thinner. These differences would make them fit tightly in some PCBs for Cherry MX but not in others, depending on tolerances used. It is however too small for a hole in a Cherry MX mounting plate (12.2 vs 14.0 mm square).

The Tesoro Agile switches are rebranded variants of this switch, available in Blue and Red.
Before the Tesoro switch had been announced, Kailh's web site did supposedly list actuation distance as 1.8±0.5 mm, not 1.5 mm. Bounce time was cited as 5 ms or less, at a keystroke rate of 3–5 keystrokes per second.
- Tesoro Gram Spectrum
- The keyboard bundled with the Acer Predator G1 gaming PC is widely believed to be a variant of the same OEM keyboard as the Tesoro Gram Spectrum but in a different case.
