    the firms prevent the keys bottoming out much better than the soft ones.
    the soft pads reduce noise but not as well as the firms.

    I got mine in the mail yesterday as well, but haven't had time to put them in yet.

    Thanks for the effort, even though it took a while ;)

    bit of a random question, but is there a specific way to install them? I have put them over the switch like shown in the photo on http://elitekeyboards.com/products.php?sub=access,slpads&pid=sl120_cf and put the key back on, but I swear it hasnt made a difference to my Das with browns, or if anything, only a very slight reduction of the bottoming out sound

    Is there a way to remove the larger Das keys with stabilisers? I read on their site that you shouldn't try to remove the big keys

    I'll try it when I get home but I suspect it's probably the same if you pull them straight upwards firmly but gently. You'll disconnect the keyswitch first, and then you'll have the stabilizer keycap eyelets still attached to the stabiliser.

    At this point you can either gently push the key to one side and use something to push the stabiliser the other way to free one side of the stabiliser then slide the key out the eye the opposite way, or just keep pulling until the eyelets come out (if even do at all on the das).

    It's easier to put the key back if you lay the stabiliser wire down with the eyelets on pointing upwards to where they'll all match up with the keycap holes.

    They help a little bit but if you're pressing through quite hard then they won't make much difference because you're putting so much force through the keys. Try avoid bottoming out when typing anyway (less joint strain).

    Just in case anyone missed out and want some landing pads, Elite Keyboards have revised shipping costs to Australia and now shipping will be around $5.
