Turn on/off clickiness

A macropad by Anis-mit-I that is switchable between clicky and linear.

Published December 10, 2021

Fellow Redditor Anis-mit-I tied a string around the end of the clickbars of his clicky switches (Kailh Box Navy), which then gets attached to a movable plate. By pulling on the string, the click bar can be moved out of the way of the slider, making the switch linear, therefore most switches with a click bar should be compatible.
