    Just picked up yesterday. In love. They gave me those neoprene cases for each key fob but I am not interested in using them. The fob has an insert area for what I assume is a key ring, but I can't get it in there for the life of me. I tried a thinner key ring that is very flexible but won't go in. How do you get it in? Or am I supposed to use a string some how? If so, where did you get a string, I assume tesla provided?

    Yep, just ask for one and they provide a string with Tesla emblem for attaching key rings.

    I used very small zip ties.

    Ask your service center for one of these:

    Or get a FobPocket:

    STORE - FobPockets - Abstract Ocean

    I actually like the FobPocket better because it protects the key as well. The new silicone ones look pretty cool, but I haven't seen one in person.

    Thanks guys! Going to go in today to get the tire repair kit. After seeing countless other members mention they forget to buy it in all their excitement.... I did the same thing!

    I don't use a key ring. I attached a small plastic decorative piece with a small zip tie as illustrated. The last thing I want is a bunch of keys banging into the fob and cracking it. And I keep my keys and the fob in separate pockets or away from each other. 15 months now and my fob still looks new.

    Get a very small (ie 1/4") split key ring at the hardware store and put it inbetween the fob and the larger split key ring.
