POM Plate for Keychron K4
Made from polyoxymethylene (POM), these replacement plates are used to modify the sound and feel of your keyboard.
1-5 - 1.6mm thick
Has underside notches to ensure switch latch engagement
Please note that due to the manufacturing process, POM does not have a protective film applied. Because of this POM almost always contains surface imperfections such as light scratches. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to prevent this; however, the integrity of the plate is not affected at all.
Some Manufacturers also include batch numbers in POM sheets on one side. When we create our plates, we ensure that all batch lettering will be facing down on the finished product.
Combined with the foam mods to deaden the hollow reverberation of the empty plastic shell, the metallic *pang* of the original Keychron metal plate is finally gone. My K4 is now a solid feeling—and sounding—board. Just be aware it seems it doesn't hold the key switches quite as firmly in place when you go to remove keycaps. I didn't seem to have the issue the other reviewer did with the plate screws interfering with the switches, despite the holes not being countersunk.
Or at least the top right hole by the pg dn key. I had some interference with the switch by this hole because the screw wasn't flush with the plate.
