A relegendable key is a key whose legend can be changed non-destructively. It consists often of two parts, one bottom and an removable top. Most relegendable key variants are flat. Relegendable keys are most often found on programmable keyboards, such as point-of-sale keyboards where ease of customization to the store's inventory is important.
Some key tops are transparent allowing for a piece of paper to be put in-between. Some vendors, such as Tipro offer also opaque printed key tops. Some keyboards (like the Cherry G80-2100) have relegendable function keys with a default legend printed on the bottom, visible through the clear top.
Most relegendable keys that are larger than one key span attach to two (or more) key switches -- not a single switch and stabilizers.
