USw LMBW02 is an extremely rare switch from an unknown manufacturer. USw LMWW01 is a heavier weight version intended for a space bar.

Manufacturer

According to Tai-Hao, the manufacturer was a now-defunct Japanese company whose name may be "Katano".[1] No other details about the switch have survived.

Description

The contact arrangement is a hybrid between a full switchplate and bare contacts: the actuator leaf and movable contact are the same part (where a "true" switchplate has a separate actuator leaf that engages a prong that presses on the contacts), but the contacts are held together by a plastic moulding.

A second pair of holes in the base permits an LED to be fitted to the switch; the LED is located to the corner of the switch.

This switch is only known from a single keyboard, Tai-Hao TH-5150. Here, it is paired with Tai-Hao TH series keycaps, which appear to beCherry MX mount.
