This keyguard will fit the Dell Multimedia Keyboard KB216 in black or white.  It is also bundled with a mouse as the MS 116 Wired Mouse and Keyboard Combo.  Also fits the KB216T.

A wireless version of this keyboard is bundled with some Dell computers like the 27 7000 all-in-one series.  The keyboard has no identification on it other than the "Dell" circle logo in the upper right corner.  Check the illustrations above to be sure that this matches the one you have.  There are other Dell wireless keyboards that do not share the same layout.

This item does not come with a keyboard. This is to order the keyguard only.

Size - The default size of the keyguard is the same as the keyboard.  You may optionally choose to add an oversized flange which adds an additional rim around the perimeter, extending beyond the keyboard and containing optional holes which you can use to devise your own mounting method.  These holes are 0.19" in diameter and fit a #10 machine screw.  Our screw kits fit these holes.

Material - The keys are just under 1/8" high, so if you pick an 1/8" material, the top of the keys will be just below the surface of the keyboard.  Most people prefer a material of 3/16" or greater, to give a little depth to the holes, requiring a more deliberate touch. 1/4" materials make for even deeper holes. A popular choice is polycarbonate, which has a lifetime guarantee against breakage and nice, bevelled edges which make the keyguard softer to the touch.
