Fastest Time To Reattach All Keys To A Computer Keyboard

United States Nathan Elliott


Chula Vista, California, United States / July 8, 2016

Nathan E. reattached all the standard keys except for ‘Shift’, ‘Esc’ and the the space bar on his computer keyboard in four minutes, 54.36 seconds.

- 'Shift', 'Esc' and space bar keys don't have to be removed/reattached
- must mix up keyboard keys in a pile before starting
- must have word processor open and type "Hello" upon completion to prove keys have been reattached
- timing stops once final key has been reattached, with "Hello" typed in just to confirm keyboard works
- must follow form of current world record holder
- must provide video evidence

  • That is one amazing feat. I wonder if they change the confirmation word up just to make it not so easy to make sure you have only those keys affixed correctly.

  • sure anything, a person chooses is fine.

    might I suggest "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"?

  • Thanks, and btw they can type any word they choose as proof that their keyboard works properly. Thought i would type "hello", to welcome any challenger that wants to try and take it on. for example someone could type " I win" or "i'm the fastest." whatever they choose is fine.

    Noted. We tweaked criteria to match that. Very nice record, BTW.

  • well i wouldn't say the clock stops after hello is typed, just typed hello to prove the keyboard works fine that's all.
