Good, sturdy tool; fit for purpose
Posted by Geoff on Nov 14th 2019
I ordered one of these having misplaced the one that came with my ErgoDox EZ.
This one is a little simpler than that one, since it's just a cap puller and doesn't have the key switch puller on the other end, but it's strong and well made and fit for purpose.
I've pulled normal and G20 caps from Cherry switches and clones, and also low profile Kailh Choc caps and the weird custom caps from the SOFT/HRUF stenography board with this tool, and it handled all of them perfectly.
It feels robust and the handle is comfortable, and the bright red should hopefully mean it takes me a little longer to lose this one than the black one I had before :)

Turns out my 3d printed keycap puller is too short to get to the bottom of SA caps. This puller is nice and long and the red handle looks nice resting on many of the surfaces I've left it on. Kudos to SA for another quality product!

It works better than those cheapo ring keycaps that pull one at a time. I like that I can pull multiple keycaps with this one, I thought I could get up to three at a time, but it turns out two is more reasonable.
One thing that is harder with this than the old ring puller is longer 2x+ keycaps. Since it can't attach to the side you have to work a weird side angle thing, but it's a lot easier to pull of still once you have it on. Overall this was a great quality of life addition and really does make pull keycaps off easier compared to the ring puller, a screw driver, or if you're a real masochist, just your fingers.

Pulls keys, seems solid, good price. I ordered it when I ordered my new cap set and they arrived in the same package. Couldn't have been happier.

Great keycap puller. I upgraded to this one from DIY solutions, and I'm saving a fair bit of time per key with this puller. Seems like good quality. Would recommend.

I used this keycap puller tool to remove and swap my ESC key with a classy red key on my KBP V80 with Matias switches. The ALPS keycaps fit very tightly so it was difficult to remove but the tool worked. No damage to the keycap or the keyboard. Get one!

Are you buying keycaps, and do you not already own a wire keycap puller? If you answered yes, add this to your cart immediately. You're welcome. The quality and functionality of this puller, for the price offered is a no-brainer.

Well, it's a keypuller, nothing extraordinary here.
I wish it has a bit longer though.
Functions as expected.

Pulled my caps well and did not bend out of shape. Much better than the dinky little ring pullers.
