- Put sockets on a switch.
- Insert switch where it belongs, with sockets on the legs.
- Solder sockets.
- Remove switch
- Repeat 1-4 until done. Use like 10 switches at a time. Use switches you don't care about so that when you inevitably solder a socket into it, it's no biggie.
When you put keycaps on your stabilizers, it might push the PCB off of the switches. I like to leave the board open until switches AND caps are installed, push everything to fit again, then close up the case.
God tier QOL upgrade: add something non-conductive underneath the PCB to prevent the above issue and just to keep the PCB from backing off in general. Bumpons or shelf liner is great for this.
