DIY mouse feet.

Mouse feet and where to find them.

We did an article about repairing the Corsair Scimitar mouse but there was one thing that we forgot to cover upon rebuilding that mouse which is the mouse feet. Otherwise known as mouse skids or even mouse skates. But mouse feet from most manufacturers are made from 0.6mm of substance known as PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene or in America, it can also go by its copy-written name “Teflon”.) Then, a layer of VHB (very high bond) double-sided tape is applied to the bottom. The Teflon is probably sodium treated so that the VHB can bind to the back without peeling away immediately due to its natural properties. But we won’t get into the chemical science of it all because we just want to get our mouse feet restored!
