Default A Sickier Key Caps?

Hello Folks:

My 2 1/2 year old K70 LUX RGB lost a key cap again tonight, the num pad "-".

I've always been able to eventually find the stray key caps in the past. Hopefully the couch hasn't ingested it, but I'm not seeing it around. Maybe I'll find it.

I see Corsair has spare sets of key caps. $30 USD isn't cheap, but I suppose other keys will eventually get lost.

What I'm actually wondering is if anybody's come up with a clever method to give the key cap a better grip on the key switch.

Thanks.

That sounds funny, but now I'm thinking.

That's not as gooey as rubber cement.

It's easy to undo if it doesn't work.

I did find the missing key cap.

It was exactly where I was afraid it was, out of sight in the crack between the cushion and the back of the sofa, less than an inch from a crevasse that could have swallowed it forever.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Just cut a small piece and lay it over the top of the stem, and place the keycap straight over it. This way the tape will stretch and form to the socket, and it can get quite thin, so you don't risk cracking the keycap. Plus it's naturally waterproof. :)
