Click Clack keycaps (colloquially called Clacks or CC's) are highly sought after novelty keycaps in the enthusiast forums. Hand-carved by ClickClack and his Gnomes (joking hehe), each keycap is a specific and unique color. Typical variants include Skulls (The profile is close to Signature Plastics or SP Escape Row profile), WASD clusters, Arrow clusters and non-Skull caps (also SP Esc Row Profile). The caps are made in one of three stem types: Cherry MX, Topre, and Bucking Spring.

Clack Variants

Skulls

Skulls have the face which is embossed on a single color cap. Clack's skulls come in two coloring styles:
Example of some Topre and Cherry MX Skulls together. Note the stems.
  • Single color skulls have same same color on the skull and the face.
  • Tri-color skulls have two separate colors. The face, cap bottom, and eyes are three separate colors.







Skull Qualities

Skulls can come in different varities of qualities. ClickClack has a very exacting measure of quality and so the skulls he deems to not be as high quality as he would like are called factory second and are usually cheaper than the normal skulls.


  • Normal skulls are deemed to be "perfect" and worthy of being sold in a typical Clack sale such as an 4Grabs or at EliteKeyboards.com.
  • Factory second skulls (F2) are slightly off from the original keycap runs that ClickClack made. The imperfections can be that the colors on the skulls are deemed too dark/light, that there are slight discolored marks, or that there is an inconsistent sheen on the cap. ClickClack may drill a hole in the top or mark the Clack with a marker.
    F2 Skull Examples








Non-Skull Caps

These are blank caps that have either a single solid color with ClickClack's trademark variety of colors. They also include some special designs such as the Julysicle and Oktoberfest.


Special Caps

ClickClack has made special caps such as sixty's 66MHz, 420 caps, and the wingnut caps on Deskthority.

There are also Gamer Sets which include single color skull and non-skull Clacks. Each full set has a skull, a WASD cluster, and arrow cluster.
