The glue on the hubs is weak and comes off easily. Also, people pry off the
hubs to fix the handle, find out that they were only attached with glue,
decide not to bother in case the handle needs to get fixed again, and then
lose the hubs. Of the three I've bought and the probably hundred-odd I've
run into, maybe 20% still have the hubs on.

I just need another keyboard, is all. SX #3 totally lacks one.
