I purchased this case for my key fob because sometimes buttons get pressed by accident as the key fob rolls around in my pocket. For example, one evening, the button for the tailgate was apparently pressed by accident. I didn't know it until morning. Since the lights inside the car were on overnight, the battery in my new car was dead when I came out the next morning. Fortunately, I was able to jump the battery from my wife's car, and I didn't lose too much time in getting where I needed to drive. However, this incident started me thinking about how to prevent it from happening again. I had noticed on some previous mornings that my car door was unlocked, but I didn't know why. Again, the unlock button must have gotten pressed as the key fob rolled around in my pocket. The car key case I recently purchased helps to prevent buttons from being pressed by accident. I have not had a single problem since I have started using the case about ten days ago. When I first received the case, I put my key fob in it and pressed the case to see if anything would happen to my car. If the outside of the case is pressed hard, then yes, the buttons will operate, but it is unlikely that the buttons would be pressed so hard with coins or other keys rolling around in my pocket. The case is attractive, seems well-made, and is smaller than some of the alternatives I found when I searched on Amazon and the Internet. The case is just the right size to fit around the fob, but it is small enough that it doesn't bother me to have it in my pants pocket all day at work. If you have a push button start on your car and a key fob, you may find this product helpful if you are having problems similar to mine.
I love these key chain bags. Had bought 2 black ones but didn't know for sure which went to which car without opening them so bought the Cherry one for the red car. They are excellent for the new key fobs that go with the push start cars. I leave them in the case in my purse and they work flawlessly. never have to dig them out and these keep them from getting "junk" in the buttons. Have recommended them to anyone with these type of key fobs. Love them!!
Had to really work at it. My Ford Key fob came with a safety extra plain key to open the door in case the fob failed. Inside my new leather case is a little chain with a tiny , I mean really tiny ring to put the key fob on. Not only is it really cheep (not a nice steel ring, but it is really small: barely fits on the fob and there is no room for this extra key. Had to scrounge around to find a decent ring to add this other key and put it in there. They both fit. But #1 They could have not only sold this with a slightly bigger ring, but #2 one made of better quality!
I am quite impressed!! It seems well built and very solid !! I kept accidentally opening the trunk of my car while having the keys in my pocket. With this case that has not happened even once. Just for fun I really tried, but the case provides enough cushion to help avoid all accidental button presses. That's what I was after!
Perfect for exactly what I wanted it for. Protect my keys from elements and still be small enough to put in my pocket. The key for my Toyota Tacoma is pretty large in size and I was a bit skeptical whether or not my key would be too snug. I was very wrong after seeing how much clearance i still had all around the key. This holder is a bit on the large size but it has a lot of give if you want to tuck it into tight places.
My only suggestions would be to perhaps made more rugged styles, something like a hard shell mesh and less shiny. This product still deserves 5 stars, but I would like to see something a little less flashy in their product line and perhaps in different colors/styles as well.
