NotesSKCLFQ is the red LED version of SKCLAR. The base includes two adaptations for LEDs over normal SKCL switches: a) LED holes, b) a recessed area in the front securing tab to give extra clearance for the LED, which protrudes from its slot at the front of the switch.
This batch of switches is surprisingly tactile, with a long, smooth tactile curve more like membrane buckling spring than the sharp point of Cherry MX. Comparing this with used SKCLAR switches, the tactility in the latter is barely noticeable. This distinct difference in tactility strengthens the theory that the switchplate is responsible for the difference between blue (SKCMAG) and white (SKCMAQ) complicated Alps.
