  • Pry off the key by pulling the tool up until the key pops off.

  • If the key is still connected at the bottom, wiggle the key from side to side until it comes off.

If there is dirt under the key, use an air canister to clean it up. Do not use any liquids to clean.

To put the key back in, line it up with the area it came from and push it back in. There will be an audible click when it is correctly inserted.

Some keys seem to also have a metal bracket under them that need to be strung in when re-inserting the key. Maybe add some instruction for that.
