    I, like many, have been in search of the perfect key fob holder for my Tesla key. I have the Tesla Maumee key fob sleeve, and it is ok. The abstract oceean ones seem to be good, but it didn't make me want to rush and change. I have always wanted something that covers the key (I know some feel it doesn't need to be covered, I still think coins might cause scratches). Then I happened to see this. It looks like this is something Tesla produced. If that is the case I do not know why they stopped. Is there anyone who has seen these, and more importantly where I might get one.

    These are the new fob holders provided by Tesla if I'm not mistaken. Where did you see it?

    I asked for one the last time I was at my service center. They had one left and gave it to me.

    Tesla began providing them in June 2016.

    I got my car in October of 2016 and this is the first I have ever seen of it. I feel cheated. Ha
    I am going to have my tires rotated tomorrow, I will be asking about getting one. I am surprised they aren't selling them (or are they)?

    Oh oops...sorry about that..
    Yes, 2015, not 2016, although the delivery experience was such that I would not mind taking it again. Just wouldn't want to give up my car for that long.

    It's just a rubber or silicone band with a keyring on it. It doesn't protect the sides of the key at all.

    Looks pretty sweet. I will ask for them when I take delivery for sure.

    Sorry for the delay...I saw it on eBay, some guy is selling the cover and key fob as a "collector's item". Says it will be incentive for someone to get a the car/SUV. He does state that it will not work on anyone's car though.
    I asked him, before you all informed me that its new, if he would sell just the cover, he said he would, for $100.
    I thought that was funny. Became even funnier after you all replied to my original post.

    Doing more looking, I see now, I just haven't been paying attention. Someone posted the new holder over an abstract ocean silcon one...I may try this..is it overkill? Perhaps...but it is a Tesla so why not?

    I picked up my model s a couple of months ago, at the end of June, and those are the exact key fobs Tesla provided.

    You can buy a car. They will probably give you the cover with it.

    Beware of this key fob holder, after 3 weeks the. Black metal ring ripped off from the black rubber silicone holder and I lost my key fob. If you use it, please occasionally check the area where the ring attaches to the rubber.

    Are you kidding?

    You only had your key cover for 3 weeks? And had to buy a car to get it. That's disappointing.

    Now what?

    Hey listen - now that you don't have any use for the car...I can take it off your hands for you.
