Our waterproof Typeguard protects your keyboard from dust, liquid spills, and other contaminants. It is easy to apply, uses no adhesive, and is washable and reusable.
Typeguard is engineered from 0.2mm ultra-thin, non-toxic, high grade Thermoplastic Urethane ('TPU'), which allows it to be over 50% thinner than regular silicon protectors.
This allows for minimum interference while typing, and reduces keystroke noise.

This Anti-Bacterial edition is embedded with silver nanoparticles, which are scientifically proven to prevent the growth of over 600 types of bacteria.

This product is compatible with all sizes (13 inch / 15 inch / 17 inch) of MacBook and MacBook Pro models released in 2010, 2011 and 2012 that have a UK/EU-spec keyword. It is not compatible with the new 2012 Retina Display MacBook Pro, or any MacBook Air model.

Also available in a Clear edition (this Anti-Bacterial edition has a transparent greyish appearance, due to its embedded silver nanoparticles).

Please note:
The UK/EU (‘ISO’) and United States (‘ANSI’) keyboard layouts are different.
Please be sure to purchase your appropriate layout.

About Typeguard

I cannot find a Typeguard keyboard protector for my device on your website. How do I know if you do/will sell keyboard protectors for it?

Please visit our Coming Soon page.

All upcoming products that we have confirmed we will be selling are listed there, and you can sign up for an email notification of when the product you are waiting for becomes available.

If the product you would like is not listed, please complete our Product Request form and we will discuss it in our weekly product range meeting (your requests do genuinely get heard).

How can I find out if Typeguard is compatible with my device?

Typeguard fits 2010, 2011, and 2012 MacBook and MacBook Pro (13"/15"17") models. It does NOT fit the MacBook Pro with Retina Display.

Why would I want to use Typeguard, or even a keyboard protector in general?

There are a number of reasons:

1) Hygiene:
It has been scientifically proven that there are more bacteria on the average keyboard than on the average toilet seat. Our Typeguard Anti-Bacterial edition prevents the growth of over 600 types of bacteria.

2) Protection from spills and mechanical damage:
Keyboard protectors prevent accidental spills from killing / severely damaging a laptop. They also reduce the occurrence of keyboard mechanical damage (e.g. certain keys ceasing to function properly), due to the subtle cushioning effect they create between the keys and your fingers.

3) Resale value:
If you do not protect your keyboard, it is quite common for the keys to acquire a ‘polished’ appearance over time. This affects the resale value of the device.

Will I definitely notice a difference between the thickness/texture of Typeguard compared to regular silicon keyboard protectors?

Yes absolutely. Typeguard is 0.2mm thin, and the Thermoplastic Urethane material we use is very low friction.
Most silicon keyboard protectors are 0.5mm thick, and have a rubbery texture that adds friction.

Is Typeguard clear, translucent or opaque in appearance?

Our Typeguard Clear edition is very clear (not completely invisible, but not far off). Our Typeguard Anti-Bacterial edition has a translucent greyish appearance to it, due to the silver nanoparticles embedded in it (which provide its anti-bacterial ability).

Is Typeguard waterproof?

Yes absolutely, but it is not watertight (Typeguard sits on top of the keyboard), so make sure not to get any liquids underneath it.

Why should I pick your Typeguard Clear edition over the Anti-Bacterial edition?

Pricing aside (the Clear edition is slightly cheaper), you should pick the clear edition if you would prefer a protector that is almost invisible on the keyboard.

Our Typeguard Clear edition is very clear (not completely invisible, but not far off). Our Typeguard Anti-Bacterial edition has a translucent greyish appearance to it, due to the silver nanoparticles embedded in it (which provide its anti-bacterial ability).

Please note however that (due to it not having anti-bacterial properties), the Clear edition will slowly begin to cloud up if it is not washed periodically. That cloudiness is bacteria.
It has been scientifically proven that there are more bacteria on the average keyboard than on the average toilet seat. Our Typeguard Anti-Bacterial edition prevents the growth of over 600 types of bacteria.

How do I wash Typeguard?

1. Apply a small amount of dishwashing liquid on a damp cloth. NEVER use bathroom soap.

2. Gently rub both sides of Typeguard using the cloth. Excessive force (from either the cloth or your fingers), can result in permanent creases or bending.

3. Rinse Typeguard thoroughly with water, then place it on lint-free tissue paper or kitchen paper until it has dried naturally.

Great product. Review by Percy
Overall
I use the clear version myself, but I bought this anti-bacterial version for my OCD IT worker friend as a Christmas gift. They were (and still are!) very happy. It fits perfectly. (Posted on 20/01/2013)
Great product, but typing speed is affected.. Review by Eddi
Overall
The Typeguard is an excellent product that works as advertized. It's almost transparent to the user and very thin.

However, it's not quite perfect.

- There are enough space around the keys that the Typepad may shift upon opening the display. This space also results in key surfaces that don't always drop down exactly vertical. If you type at more than a slow pace, you'll have to wait a few milliseconds for the surface to stop vibrating before pressing the next key. This is caused by a less-than-rigid typing surface.

- It's thick enough that typing speed is notably slower, with key response suffering somewhat. If you use your computer in a very casual fashion, this wouldn't be a deal breaker. If you need to get actual work done and type frequently, the slow response and shaky keys WILL impact your typing efficiency!

Great product. I hope the design team can take this considerations into account as better, thinner materials become available. (Posted on 27/02/2012)
