I understand you may think it is, but the one from Drop is NOT the same as this.

Unlike the one on Amazon, the butt-end of the Drop one does not fit around a keycap stem. Full stop, period, end of story. You could try to smash it on with a hammer and it still wouldn’t work. I literally have one sitting in front of me with four different brands/plastics of keycaps. None fit anywhere that would tighten.

Also, unlike the amazon one, this has a phillips-style screwdriver end, NOT a flat Cherry-MX style post with a blunt end that would let a keycap sit snuggly on it for the sake of expansion. If you tried to “loosen” a keycap stem with this Drop one, it would literally just split the plastic and ruin. It would not loosen it like the one pictured on Amazon.

I know it might be hard to fathom, but despite having almost the same appearance as the Amazon one, it is not the same at all. Unless Drop started sending different pullers without my knowledge… but the one depicted by OP is the exact one I have.

If I wasn’t lazy I’d record a video to prove it but honestly it’s not worth it for the e-points.

Keycap Puller for Mechanical… https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08B5ZNY43?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

I cut this at the elbows and wrapped them upward into a semi-circle with a pair of needle nose pliers. I saw it from a poster on Home-Barista and use it with my classroom espresso machine. The home machine gets the Londinium WDT tool.

Cut off the ends. It’s hard to see, but this would leave 4 wires.

Home-barista.com shows lots of options people have rigged up.

Literally the same keycap puller on Amazon. Check the pics, it shows which ends do what.
