The Add-on or modular numeric keypad has all of the basics that the typical right side of the keyboard offers. The main difference here is the addition arrow keys and other commands offers with the Shift key. There is also a handy little calculator button at the bottom to bring up the default Windows calculator.

Flipping it over shows it uses the same thin rubber strips and the two additional feet to allow for the perfect angle. Also, found around the edge, there are three tabs that will allow this device to clip into the sides of the Mech5 and the swing-up caps.

On both sides of the numeric keypad you get a USB port on them to allow you to either pug this into either side f the keyboard, or use the adapter cable to allow the use of the pad anywhere on the desktop.

To accomplish the task of connecting the keypad to the keyboard and still not connecting it directly to the keyboard you are given this four foot long male to male cable that works with the back of the keyboard and the keypad. You cannot connect this to the side ports on the Mech5.

The Macro D-pad offers you six keys that can be slid onto a rail to allow you to adjust their placement on the keyboard to allow you the most access with the least amount of effort.

Flipping the D-pad over you can see there is even a little foot to take the pressure off of the hinge. This foot will rest between the F-keys and the numbers across the top.
