(1 customer review)

$0.32 $0.18

These are old stock Box switches with the x-axis of the cross stem measuring 1.32mm.

Due to the IP56 water resistant construction of the switches, Kailh Box switches are compatible with SMD LEDs only. They are not compatible with regular through-hole LEDs.



The 4 new Kailh Box Switch colors are:

  • White
  • Red
  • Brown
  • Black


  • MX-compatible
  • Compatible with SMD LEDs
  • 3.5 mm travel
  • 70 million lifetime click rating
  • Refer to the chart below for a breakdown of each switch’s attributes.


These Kailh box switches have stems which are surrounded by a “box” which provides two functions.

First of all, it keeps liquids, dirt, and dust from getting into the switches. This is especially important when the keycaps are taken off of a board and the switches are left “naked” for a time.

Second, the surrounding “box” supports the stem during the keypress and therefore restricts the stem from any horizontal movement, or “wobble” when moving downwards and when the switch is fully depressed.

Box switches are rated IP56 water resistant and have a lifespan of 70 million keystrokes.

    Kailh Box Black switches are truly remarkable smooth linear switches. The new design and a relatively heavy spring make these switches feel very sturdy and there is less stem wobble than any variety of MX switch I have ever used. They come pre-lubed so you don’t need to bother with that tedious process. The slightly shorter travel and actuation point make them feel considerably more responsive than standard switches. Definitely recommend Kailh Box switches.
