Title:

Replacement keycaps are too thick?

Text:

Hi,

I have had to replace the keycaps on my A2179 (early 2020). But the replacement keycaps - from a trustworthy source - are thicker than the original ones. That means they are slightly higher when installed. The description says they are keycaps for A2179 and A2337.

The original key kaps are 1.4mm thick, the replacement ones 2mm. So the key caps are slightly above the line of the housing whereas the original ones were flush.

Is this a problem?

Can I use them? Or do I risk damaging my display?

Thanks!
