If you’ve purchased a replacement keyboard key kit from us, you’ll start with the key, a rubber spring, and a hinge.

First, hook the top of the inside hinge piece to the top two plastic pieces in the space where the key goes. Then push down on the bottom of the hinge until it snaps on.

Set the rubber spring where it goes. Then set the key on top and push down to snap it on.

  1. Nice video! You have well described about how to replace a single key for laptop. Thanks for sharing this awesome content.

    The new keypad and parts arrived very fast. Excellent.
    The video was very good. I was installing the shift key, and initially had the inside hinge 180 degrees wrong; I had top and bottom correct but but the video was encouraging and I got the idea and it fit right on.

    The spacebar on my refurb’d Logitech K800 would not spring back. I found the rubber spring detached. I think I know how the bar goes back on, but how would I get the rubber spring to stay in position?

  4. dave says:

    Parts arrived as promised and on schedule, and they are the correct parts.

    This video is very good for a letter key, but what about specialty keys, eg Left Control vs Right Control? How to orient the hinge left vs right? Do you have any videos for those keys, that are duplicates on the left and right side of the keyboard?

  5. You can replace ALL laptop keyboard keys, whatever the model is. If the only reason why you need to replace the key is that it is broken, then you can simply buy replacement key and install it yourself.
