I have. They work but aren't as good as the original magnets. It's like they aren't properly polarized, they repel one another but there's a tiny part that attracts. So instead of the magnets looking like this = they're like this <. There isn't enough throw in a SMPL switch to use 4 magnets either.
At no point in Trump's rambling, incoherent 1 term presidency was there anything close to what could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the country is now dumber for having experienced it.

It's because the internal diameter is too great to prevent the magnets torquing. As a result, the edges overcome the repelling force, and end up attracting on one side.

Could you glue them down? If so, what would be the best type of adhesive to use?

This sounds about right. It follows that the more powerful magnets prevent the torquing so they don't have a chance to attract.

@j300 - I have my doubts about glue. An epoxy might work to set the magnets in place. If you try remember your vent holes.
(eta: crazy glue might work, I've just never had really good success with crazy glue and metal. Neodymium magnets are really smooth)

They won't fit in a 1:1 SMPL switch btw ;-) The inner diameter of the magnets is too small.
Woah, mama!

As Nymzavril stated, on my clone from here, the inner diameter of the magnet is too big. The spring I have is working perfectly fine right now but just wanted to try magnets to see if it's any better. This is the one I have:

That's not a 1:1 switch.

I have my brother in law one to fix a broken magnet in his SMPL and he said it worked fine. He had the coated copper SMPL with a brass button.
