Stabilizer Lubricant

  • 5ml in a capped Luer-Lok syringe 
  • 18 Ga. 1.5" Industrial Dispensing applicator Tip
  • 20 Ga. 1.5" Industrial Dispensing applicator Tip
  • shipped in crush-proof cardboard 

We do not accept returns for lubricants as it would be impossible to guarantee they were not tampered, contaminated, or stored improperly.

18 Ga. tip is identical to the one used in the write up below, and the 20 Ga. tip may make it a bit easier to access the stabilizers on a factory or fully assembled keyboard.

There's an amazing write up on r/mk detailing how to apply Super Lube to the stabilizers, copied here with permission from the OP:

So the conventional method of lubricating stabilizers is to dip/paint the wire with the chosen lubricant and then said wire is then inserted into the stabilizer housing.

The problem Ive always had with that is that its a relatively messy method with allot of lubricant getting onto the housing of the stabilizer, a non issue if a softer lube like 205g0 is used but problems arise when a harder lube such as a dielectric grease or similar is used. A harder lube has a chance of seeping between the housing and the slider of the stabilizer which will make the function of the stabililzed key very sluggish. Another problem is getting the amount of lubricant consistant on the wire when dipping into the lubricant and then making sure most of is goes into the stabiliser slider.

Now onto the solution - use a syringe.

Conclusion

This method works well to stop rattle and the application of the lube/grease is very consistant with each application and is a very precise way to apply grease/lube with no overflow which are the problems that I wanted to solve. Is the method better than just dipping the wire in the grease/lube? No, it works just as well so its up to you which method you use but imo its easier to get a consistant application with the method in this post.

Note - this method can definitely be used for a stabilizer that is already mounted to a keyboard for example a prebuilt board or if your stabilizers need retuning and you dont want to desolder.

TL;DR - Watch video in post, method works well to stop rattle. Is it a better way? Not really, dipping/painting the wire works just as well to stop rattle.
