If not, how reliable are the holtites? I like the idea of them but I would feel safer with the switches actually soldered in.

Don’t remove the top of switch when it is soldered. My case doesn’t support switch-top removal. 2. Soldering is more reliable than holtite connection. For example when you pull out a keycap, the switch also could been pull out. But for usual usage holtites don’t have problem. Thanks.
