Trackpoint cap / rubber / hat r/ nub replacement?

#1 Post by pathan421id » Sat Mar 10, 2018 1:37 am

I can find collection (3 style, 1 of each per pack, made in japan) original caps but they're intended for newer keyboards so the cap itself is shorter in height and doesn't fit the 7-row style perfectly.

Tried looking around around ebay, amazon, aliexpress shows either that they're not genuine or have the shorter height for more modern models :(

Thanks in advance for the insight

I bought on Aliexpress. They are ok.
Rubber is soft, work just fine and they are not short.
Used the same on T42, R40, R51, L520, L530, and T540p and I didn't find anything wrong.
Besides, 1$ for 10pcs is not much even just to test them and throw away if you don't like them.
