    We're pleased to announce a new addition to our leather range, the Rustic Leather FobPocket:

    This is probably the fanciest FobPocket we'll ever make, and we love how it turned out.

    To get things moving, use the TMC-exclusive code of LEATHERWEATHER at checkout for 20% off any leather FobPocket, no limit, expires in a week on Oct 4.

    There's a few more new products on the site as well, will post more details over the coming days.

    Ordered one pete! Your first generation silicone/fabric fob is starting to rip up along the edges where you insert the key and the surface is coming off the strethcy fabric. That's from one year of constant use, daily driving, in and out of pockets. But I still have faith in you so i'll try the leather one.

    Pete - that is an extremely attractive product: well done!
    Serious question, however: with the thickness of the leather, how easy or difficult is it to press through it to the fob's various pressure points?

    Thanks for the kind comments. Although the leather is a bit thicker than the regular black and brown versions, it's still not really thick, and is still quite supple - it's not a stiff leather at all. Each layer is just shy of 2mm (I'm not an inches person, but Google says that's 0.078"), so it's still easy to press the buttons through it.

    Looks great!!! Just ordered one a couple of hours ago. I currently have the silicone ones, but I think I will like this better.

    Update.... I just received the new leather fob pocket. All I can say is outstanding!!! It fits the fob very well, and looks great. For those with the silicone fob pocket, this one is a little bit bulkier, but not by much. You can easily push the fob buttons thorough the leather. Snap and key ring are very stout, so no worries there.

    Good job, Pete!

    Aw shucks, thanks :) I don't think I'm quite as obsessive about the design as, say, Apple, but this is v8 of this particular design; it's been a l-o-n-g time coming, so I'm excited to finally get it out there. I know these things are trivial compared to the engineering marvel of the Model S, but every little helps!

    Last call on the 20% discount code for any of the leather FobPockets, it'll expire tomorrow.

    Use LEATHERWEATHER as the coupon code at checkout.

    Thanks!

    Are you going to put your leather screen cleaner in your Amazon store? I looked a short while ago and it's not there.

    Me to, and I agree. I now have a variety of Pete's fob covers, and deciding which one to use is like deciding what socks to put on in the morning.:biggrin:

    Yes, I'll include those with my next fulfillment run. It'll probably not be for a couple of weeks though, the whole process takes a while.
