Hako Royal Clear Mechanical Switches (36 Count)
Royal Clear switches (white slider, black lower housing), which iterate on Input Club’s Hako switches, use a thicker contact leaf to dramatically increase tactility. Elements from Cherry MX Clear and Topre are combined with a medium spring weight to create a comfortable, bottom-out resistant switch for rapid typists. Precision molds and tooling from Kaihua made the switches last 25% longer than regular MX variants during stress testing. In addition, the bespoke slider design virtually eliminates wobble.
Compatibility Note: pre-retooling Box switches may cause cracking in certain aftermarket ABS keycap sets — notably those from GMK. PBT / POM keycaps will not crack, but they may experience stretching. Internal testing indicates that the cracking / stretching does not affect GMK / aftermarket sets universally, so yours may fit correctly on Box switches. We recommend testing a spare keycap on your Box switches for at least two weeks, then performing a visual inspection / fitment test on Cherry MX switches, before applying the entire set.
Community enthusiasts Jacob Alexander (HaaTa) and Brandon Muzzin (Over^Kill) designed custom springs for the Hako line. Royal Clears use a medium spring and have a peak tactile point of (approximately) 72 grams. Tactility occurs early in the key press. A 20 gram post-tactile cushion, in the form of a resistance ramp, prevents bottom out or reduces its harshness.
Box switches use a square slider design and sealed contacts that provide superior contaminant protection. If liquids or dust somehow penetrate a switch, lower housing vents and a slider drainage port eject the unwanted substances.
