What can I use to lube my switches?
Here is our recommended lube options for linear switches:
- Krytox 205g0 – For a smoother and buttery feel. Less is more.
- Tribosys 3203 – A thin lubricant that creates a fast and smooth feel.
- Trbisosy 3204 – Thicker than 3203 but is hard to mess up.
- Krytox 105 Oil – Recommended for the springs only to prevent spring ping.
Can Vaseline be used as metal Lube?
Vaseline: you can use vaseline for all sorts of applications. It is a great lubricant for metal parts such as the air installation, but it is also regularly used for installing PVC parts.
How do you lubricate a switch without opening it?
There are two ways to lube your mechanical keyboard switches without desoldering:
- Push-Stem-Lube Method: Remove the keycaps and slide a lubed piece of plastic between the stem and switch housing.

How do you lube clicky switches?
If you really want to lube your clicky switches, we recommend using a super thin lube and applying a thin coat to avoid ruining the switch. Lubing a clicky switch is definitely for the more advanced keyboard enthusiast. Tactile switches can benefit from lubing, but we recommend using a thin lube for your first time.
Is Vaseline a rust inhibitor?
A coat of vaseline, mixed with a little camphor, is an excellent preventive from rust for tools.
Is petroleum jelly a grease?
Grease generally consists of a soap emulsified with mineral or vegetable oil. ... For example, petroleum jellies such as Vaseline are not generally classified as greases. Greases are applied to mechanisms that can be lubricated only infrequently and where a lubricating oil would not stay in position.
Can I use Super Lube for keyboard switches?
You can mix Super Lube® Oil with Syncolon® PTFE with Super Lube® Multi-Purpose Grease. So now, we have a readily available, cheap, and safe lube for our applications. I went ahead and bought both the oil and the grease for around 10% of the cost of Krytox, and can easily lube ~50 keyboards with the 3oz of each.
Can you lube switches with dielectric grease?
It's a good lubricant and it's a good insulator (so it shouldn't screw anything up electrically).
How long does Lube last in switches?
There should be no need to reapply PFPE lubricant, even over a period of 5, or even 10 years, as they have properties that are resistant to change from oxidation or temperature. It will not dry out.

Is it safe to use Vaseline as a lubricant?
- The petroleum jelly in Vaseline has been connected to the growth of yeast, which can cause serious conditions such as bacterial vaginosis and pelvic inflammatory disease. It’s probably best to use personal lubricants such as silicon-based lubes and water-based lubes, which are gentler alternatives for women prone to yeast infections.
What kind of lubricant to use on switch?
- The traditional switch contact lubricant is Vasoline, but it gets runny at slightly high temperatures. A silicone lubricant would work well and be stable at different temperatures. One does not have to be fussy about the exact lubricant.
Is it okay to put Vaseline in the shower?
- Whether or not you’ll be having sex in the shower or you’d be masturbating in the lube, Vaseline will not dissolve in water and will hold up quite fine for as long as you want. While we actually don’t like the texture and all, it is only honest to mention how consistent it still remains in the presence of water.
Can you use silicone toys as a lubricant?
- Although you won’t be able to use them with silicone toys as they’ll degrade such toys, they offer more consistency than water-based lubes and can be used in bath and showers, unlike the water-based lubricants. The oil-based sex lubricants are made from oil such as coconut oil, olive oil and much more.
