EZ MX switch opener

EZ MX switch opener. No more sore fingers? Posted by fnu_lnu_.

This relatively new switch opener by Gateron is already available on Aliexpress.

E.g. from this seller.

Definitely not cheap (above $30), but classy and may prevent your fingers from getting soar after opening a bunch of switches.
