HOW TO make a silent mouse

Rozsroubovana-Mys Neat HOW TO for keeping the mouse quieter if you have roommates – “Having used my silenced rodent for nearly 1/2 year at home, I finally decided to get rid of the clicking noise at work too and here’s the how-to. Some people wanted me to translate the original article, but I guess it’s better to start afresh with a revised and simplified approach”. Link.

  1. That totally worked! :) Thanks for the share! Like one of the commenters, the two parts didn’t fit perfectly for me, so I had to cut a little bit of the plastic around the small white moving “clicker”. Moreover when reversing was complete, the “big” mouse button didn’t hit the “small” white part inside, so I had to add an additional metal “prolongener” on top of the whole mechanism to actually link the new position of the small white clicker with the old one that was getting hit when I click the mouse. I did this by cutting a small part out of a pen spring and straightening it, and then sticking it with tape on the outside of the whole click mechanism. And now it’s ninja-silent! That was a very nice thing to do, but it did need patience and some tools(pincers and a screw driver, as well as a needle to disassemble the click mechanism – I didn’t want to take it out of the pins, because I was afraid not to damage them and render the whole mouse unusable, a small “swiss” knife is also very useful).
