Macropad care

To clean up the Macropad:

  • Disconnect the Macropad from the power supply and take out the USB cable
  • Remove the keycaps with a puller, straight up, so as not to damage the Macropad
  • Remove switches with puller
  • Flip the Macropad and lightly pat its bottom and shake out all the dirt
  • Wipe off any dirt and dust from the keycaps with a slightly damp, clean microfiber cloth. Then wipe dry
  • Dust and dirt from the case and board can be removed with a microfiber cloth moistened with an alcohol-containing liquid
  • Make sure the case and keycaps are completely dry before assembly
  • Treat the Macropad cable with care. Do not bend the cable, do not pull on it, do not disconnect or connect the cable unnecessarily, in order to avoid rapid wear off of the USB port
