Many people own a laptop or notebook and most find it an essential part of their life. Some use it for work while others use it for play. Regardless of the use, many people who own laptop computers need them to work properly and efficiently. One common problem with laptop keyboards is that the plastic keys pop off, get lost or are damaged. This impedes productivity and looks plain unprofessional and unappealing. Luckily, we offer laptop replacement keys and key repair kits for almost every make and model available. What most people don't know is that these can be installed quickly and easily by anybody. We have seen complete novices replace their laptop keys with the resources we provide.
Laptop computer keys come in all shapes and sizes. Although the basic layout of the keyboard remains homogeneous, some keys (like the function keys, delete, enter and space bar) may be in different positions or have different markings on them. The little plastic clips that hold the key to the keyboard base will vary in size as well. Typically, there are three basic sizes for each keyboard: the small, rectangular keys like the f1 - f12, all the square shaped letter/number keys (A-Z, 0-9) and the large keys (tab, caps, enter...). The fact is that no matter the size and shape of the plastic retainer clip, they are all very similar and relatively easy to replace and the repair process is not unique.
Suppose you need to replace the "Backspace" key. Although the clip is wider than the clips for the square shaped keys, the install process is the same regardless. Some larger keys might have a metal bar that gets threaded in first before the key cap attaches to the keyboard base. Other than that, no matter the if the key cap is large or small, any laptop key retainer clip can be replaced quickly and easily.
