A Full Function TKL Hotswappable Mechanical DIY Keyboard Kit
A TKL keyboard is usually considered an almighty one that contains all functions in the full-size keyboards. Everglide SK87 Kit has continued the necessary functions and gone further. Featuring hot-swappable and improved gasket-mounted structure with sound dampening foams, the SK87 Kit provides DIYers with more fun and presents an ergonomic and comfortable typing experience.
Improved Gasket-Mounted, Poron Foam & PC Plate
To go for a soft typing feeling, Everglide SK87 is assembled in a gasket mount. Unlike the general gasket structure without any screws in the plate, Everglide remains the screws to increase the consistency for the need in typing. In the meanwhile, the PC plate is firmly-built and better to be shine-through. As for presenting better typing sounds, the keyboard is inserted with Poron as the PCB foam. You can actually feel the thocky sound in every corner of this keyboard!
Programmable Via Wireless Bluetooth
With a rechargeable 6000mAh battery, the efficient Bluetooth 5.0 technology allows the keyboard to connect up to three devices seamlessly. The keyboard can also be programmed with the bluetooth connection. The keyboard supports *upgrading to triple modes with 2.4Ghz connection. It is especially convenient for those who are fed up with cables all along. Without messy-cable issues, you can change and set up your own keyboard at will!
*Note: A matching dongle needs to be purchased separately for upgrading to triple mode.
Compatbile with Screw-in Stabilizers
Screw-in stabilizers are often considered as an effective way to prevent rattling on large keys like spacebars and modifiers. This DIY kit is equipped with Everglide V2 PCB Stabilizers, which work with MX-compatible PCBs and greatly decrease typing noise. Being ‘pre-clipped’, it aims to eliminate foot clipping, while the outer casings are specially shaped to prevent threads from stripping. Now you can build your exclusive mechanical keyboard with this DIY kit!
Built-in SMD RGB Backlights and Underglows
Acrylic based keyboards are friendly to typists as they can be much brighter with backlights. The Everglide SK87 kit is not only fulfilling this demand but also adding more to light up your desktop - with underglow lights! Thanks to the RGB modules on the PCB, the backlights can be changed in different modes and it is also programmable. You can enjoy your own groovy lights even under a dark environment!
Type-C Connection & Compatible with Windows/Mac
With the SMD LEDs, RGB light effects are classic and neat, and you can freely adjust the brightness and light speed. To stay a fast and stable transmission, the keyboard is connected by a detachable type-C cable. More than that, the keyboard supports USB 3.0 connection to be efficient and fast charging. As a multi-tasking keyboard, it is also compatible with OS on both Windows and Mac. It surely meets the needs of each user to work efficiently or switch between gaming and working status.
Note: When the keyboard is under the wireless mode, USB 3.0 connection may cause interference in transmitting signals.

About Group Buys
What is a Group Buy?
A Group Buy (or GB) is a term widely used in the keyboard community, which is super similar to crowdfunding. This is a process in which each customer unites together and uses the collective buying power to purchase goods at a reduced price or at all. Note here that products in group buy must reach a certain amount of products sold before manufacturing can start. After the buy hits its minimum order quantity (MOQ), and the GB period ends, production will begin and the shipment follows.
Group Buys from Epomaker.com are non-cancellable and non-refundable after the Groupbuys go live for 5 days. For example, a GB starts on Monday, then after Friday, we can't cancel and refund the order for you. This is because, after 5 days of the start, we usually have started to sort out the order data for mass production. Changes and cancellations will delay the overall process and ruin everyone's experience, which is the last consequence we want to see.
Each Group Buy has a "closed" date. If the group buy doesn't reach the MOQ by the end of the last day, the production will not be made, and you will receive a full refund without questions.
What are the benefits of joining a Group Buy?
✅ You get to purchase and enjoy the product at the earliest.
✅ Affordable prices for high-quality products. The price of a GB product is usually the lowest within at least 6 months.
✅ Extras and gifts. Depending on different GBs, you might get exclusively discounted add-on products, or free gifts by joining a group buy as an early supporter.
✅ Being more than a customer. You might also get to contribute your suggestion and feedback to the final product. Reasonable and realistic suggestions might be accepted and conducted to the final product. To us, there's nothing more valuable than your voice.
✅ Secure, authentic, reliable, and transparent process. I bet you have done your search and noticed that there are some shady vendors who disappear after collecting money from GB supporters, regardless of whether the GB meets the MOQ or not. The first crowdfunding campaign started by Epomaker can be traced to 2020. Since then, we have successfully fulfilled at least 6 campaigns for our supporters. Time has examined us for you as well as training us to become better and better.
So I placed an order, now what?
Well, now we wait. Kindly check the timeline and schedule posted on the specific Group Buy page, and you will know how long the wait could be before production and shipment. Keep an eye on the page update and your inbox, you will get an email including a tracking number when your order is shipped. Follow our socials or join our discords, you can also find notifications and help there
