    Cool party trick but just inviting injury or collision. IMO, keep the key fob functions simple and move the party tricks to the smartphone app.

    Several of my family and friends have already been injured. You can't keep the fob in your pocket anymore and wearing it on a clip still causes problems when leaning as when loading or unloading.

    Maybe Otterbox should design one for the X key fob. Though I haven't ever needed one for my iPhone nor has the key fob in my back or front pocket caused it to click close all doors.

    Also, maybe try leaving the key in the phone charger compartment of the console when you get into the car and take it why you when you want to lock it away.

    The rear gate hit me in the head this afternoon. FOB was in my pocket, I was leaning in to pull stuff out. I still have a headache.

    I keep mine in one of two shirt pockets. Prevents accidental fob presses. My wallet fits in the other shirt pocket for comfortable sitting and less chance of pickpocketing.

    The recent software update that allows fob opening and closing of the driver door will decrease scratches on the chrome surface. Two taps for open and one tap for close is very handy. Holding the hatch fob button to open the charge port works better than unlocking with the unintended opening driver door to charge the Model X.

    Also the charge port now opens from the click on charging cable.

    Thanks for that news. Unfortunately, on my teenage VIN Signature, it only opens occasionally while pressing the charge handle button if the car is locked. Appears to work fine if the car is unlocked.

    Good to remember the key fob hatch hold or push reflector method to open the charge door if the charge handle button isn't responsive.

    I love the one click to close all function, use it daily. I keep my key in my pocket and I've never in 3+ years of owning a Tesla had an accidental button press.

    How tight are your jeans? :)

    It would be very difficult for me to notice an accidental single click with an S, especially if the doors were open. The X is... different.

    Happened to me twice, both times had fob in same pocket as cell phone or wallet, trunk started to close as was reaching back to pick up luggage to put in trunk. Good that it beeps when starts to close. Learned my lesson, now fob goes in pocket by itself or wear looser trousers.

    I've already concluded that I can't keep my fob in my pocket when I get in to drive--too easy to accidentally open the FWD when I sit down and move my leg, even with a double-click required. (It's happened like 3 times in two days.) In light of that, one click to close doors is great--I use it as I'm walking away, before I transfer the fob back to my pocket.

    In my opinion, a triple click should be required to trigger anything which moves on a Tesla, excepting perhaps mirrors and moonroofs.

    You must be kidding. That would be so frustrating.

    I manage to close the tailgate on my head twice right after the SW update came out while I was reaching into the the back to take groceries out.

    I like the functionality, but maybe a double-click or long click instead of a single click.

    I guess I just don't understand what is causing these unexpected closings on people's heads. Aside from the driver's door, my car never closes anything without me telling it to. I never have any problem with the keyfob self-clicking, which sounds like that's the problem some are having.

    Make sure you don't have the web browser on the 17" screen open to TMC. If you make any negative Model-X comments, the rear hatch may close unexpectedly on your head. You must always be careful of the wrath of your Xs.
    Sorry, I promise to contribute more useful information once I get my X, but for now I'm just doing whatever I can to keep sane. Just a few more days...
