My fobs came without a string. Go to a bead store and have them knit string for you.
(My first one came undone, but later brought back both keys - all for free, and some Tesla time).
That's my pathetic knot. But I did singe the ends with a lit match to prevent it from unraveling again.
My fobs came without strings also so I can't take the poll. I attached fob ornaments to each to give them more heft/mass using small zip ties so that I can keep them separate from all other keys. They should last longer without the constant banging into other keys.
I didn't even know they were providing strings now. I use a twist tie :wink:
Mine didn't come with strings. I bought some in anticipation of getting the key fobs though. Then I never actually put the string on.
I haven't had my car key attached to another key for about 8 years now.
All my other keys stay on key rings in the car.
Mine didn't come with a string either. I just found a really small loop, hard to put on but it's all good once it's on.
Ours didn't come with strings - but I added one that looks identical to the one you just posted (I pulled it off of a USB thumb drive I had nearby). Been six months and it still hasn't broken, to my surprise. I do have only one key attached to it, so maybe that's why.
Our local service center uses the neoprene USB sleeves from Case Logic. But they really should get some of these instead: http://www.abstractocean.com/fobpockets/
I have the strings, came with the fobs in April. 5 months and 5,000 miles, no sign of fraying on them. Not that this is high on my list of concerns.
Mine didn't come with a string. Got some titanium rings online.
Been solid for 7 months.
My string hasn't broken yet (2 weeks old). I take good care of it, but I may opt for a full vinyl wrap to protect the paint on the fob.
My string hasn't snapped... because it didn't come with one.
Another TMC member suggested these and they're fantastic and almost free, and come with several clips so you can use with multiple key rings:

Here's another photo:
tezzla & kevincwelch--I did the same thing. You can find small snap rings around. I placed one through the slot on the fob. I got one of the freebie red Tesla key rings and attached it. All set!!
I bought some that look exactly like this from amazon. I attached my fob and my wife's with two strings each. Its been 8 months and they're doing fine.
Mine didn't come with a string so I picked up a nice one on Amazon. I've had it since March with no problems to date, though the top of my fob is showing signs of wear.
My "string" (how pathetic) separated from the small ring which joined up to the larger ring; I just tied the "string" to the larger ring! Here's a picture of the comparison to my second set which is still intact:
Mind didn't come with anything, but I thought like 5-10 of those for a couple of bucks off Amazon. I don't actually attach it to my keys, though--why bother, when I don't need to actually take it out of my pocket with keys? I just put it in my pocket (if wearing jeans--frequent, for me--in the little change pocket), and don't remove it till day's end. I probably shouldn't have bothered even attaching the string thing I bought to the key, but a couple of times I have attached it to my key ring. But usually, I just don't bother attaching it.

P.S. I have four left; if you were in the area, I'd offer to give you a couple, since you're so tough on them. ;-) ;-)
Mine never had a string with it either. I used a small ring and put a fishing spinner on it.
Mine didn't come with a string. I use a small black cable tie and then a standard key ring. It is minimal and it has worked fine for 6 months so far.
No string on mine.
