Why Isn’t the M1 Plate Fully Compatible with the M1 HE?
The M1 plate’s design, particularly in POM and FR4 variants, lacks screw holes necessary for attachment to PCBs. These plates rely on the switches themselves to hold them in place. When switches are mounted, the plate secures them with a snap, and the sockets clip the switch pins, providing stability.
Notably, magnetic switches have no pins. To improve stability, it is recommended to use multiple mechanical switches to secure both the perimeter and center of the plate if you want to use a plate without screws.
Remember, calibration is crucial after installing mechanical switches. Refer to this link for detailed instructions: Calibrating MonsGeek Magnetic Switch Keyboard.
