One of the most used keys on my htpc keyboard is the escape key.

It’s there, easy to find in the dark and is generally handy to wake the keyboard when it is slumbering.

Unfortunately it seems I have to find a new key as the escape key escaped and one of the three clips that hold the key on has broken off, which is disappointing to say the least.

Hard to say why it broke off but could be a mixture of wear & tear, cat spillage (where a cat jumps on a pile of objects and said pile slide off where it has been sat for eternity through wind, rain and shine) and general clutziness.
