I bought this key cap puller at Amazon to save and keep my white keyboard, which had become dirty with certain keys slow or sticking. Also, I needed the contrast of the white keyboard to be easier on my eyes, rather than black keyboards that are the only ones available today. The key cap puller worked on all key caps, including the wider "enter" and "shift" key caps. After writing down the key cap order of a row, I'd pull all the caps for a row, wash and dry them in soapy water. While one row was drying I'd pull another row and clean using the same technique. It took approx 2 hours to complete and I had a brilliantly clean keyboard again with no caps slow or sticking. If you try this, leave the "space bar" on when you clean the caps because it's very complex and tricky to reinstall that particular key cap. My fingers can now type faster on my clean keyboard, and my eyes thank me. Well worth the money and something I could only find at Amazon.

I tried the paperclip method of pulling keys from my mechanical key keyboard and it was a pain in the backside, especially when I wanted to do my yearly cleaning by removing all the keys. This tool made it very easy to pop off keys in a very timely manner. If you need to remove, say 100+, keys from a keyboard you'll appreciate this tool.

I bought this for a new mechanical keyboard where I wanted to add some O-rings to soften the key press. This keycap puller worked great, I was able to pull every key on the keyboard (except the space bar) cleanly and easily. It's a great tool for the job :)

This Keycap Puller is useable, but for my Old Focus Electronic FK-2000 Plus (with clicky white Alps keys), the wire part of the puller is just slightly too narrow to fit easily under the narrow part of the keys (a difference of a fraction of an inch). I intend to re-bend the ends to widen it slightly & hopefully not break it in the process, but since I only paid $10.86, which included shipping, it would not be a major loss. Overall, "ya gits what ya pays fur".

I didn't think this item was going to be a "must-have," but after using this over a butter knife, it makes removing keys from my keyboard much easier.

I use this on my Unicomp SpaceSaver keyboard (the best keyboard out there!) to remove the standard, lettered keys and replace them with blank, black ones. All you have to do is put the wired section parallel over each key, press down, turn to a diagonal and pull. My keys come right off with little resistance.
The reason I gave it four stars was because of durability. As of now, I've no issues with the puller, but it does seem slightly flimsy. Only time will tell, and I will post an update when I've had a good long while to use this tool.

My keys more closely resemble the original IBM Model M, but I'm sure it can come in handy for other desktop keyboards.

When cleaning some keyboards using this tool some sticking may occur post cleaning, it's not the tool's fault, it's the cleaning.
The insure smooth operation consider using the lubricant that is commonly used in SCUBA diving practice.
Namely, silicone grease.... grease, not liquid.
It is long lasting and non corrosive and non reactive to plastic or O-rings and non-conductive.
Use a toothpick or something similar that is non fibrous to apply a TINY amount of grease.

For example.

Metal is susceptible to bending if you pull it too far so don't do that and you'll have a great experience.

The portion where the metal is inserted into the plastic feels solid for those wondering.
