How do I crimp Gateron yellow switches to fit in a Redragon K552? (uses outemu switches)

I’ve read in other threads that I would have to crimp the pins of Gateron yellow switches for them to fit in Outemu switch sockets. What is crimping and how do I do it?

FYI my Redragon keyboard is hot-swappable.

I’ve also read that it’s possible to put Gat yellow springs and stems in Outemu blue housing (frankenstein switches), but I would have to open each and every switch housing for both the Gat yellows and Outemu blues to do this.

Which of these two methods would be less work?

Here’s the 3-pin Gat yellow switch I want to get: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07K7YR3RY/?coliid=IGG7TESOV6XRU&colid=1VPAGOAB2TRD7&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it&th=1

They’re unavailable on mykeyboard.eu and candykeys.com but i found them on amazon :


Cheaper than everywhere else, hope they’re compatible, judging from the picture they are plate mount which is what I need.
