2018-01-22 Key Fob Sleeve

22 January 2018

Twice I’ve gotten back to my car to find the windows open. Other BMW i3 owners have reported seeing this happen as well. It happens when I accidentally press and hold the unlock button on the remote while the fob is in my pocket with other things.

Some people recommend buying a $20 cover for the fob, but it’s more fun to design my own and print it in TPU.

The car generally unlocks when I touch it with the key fob nearby in my pocket, so I don’t often need to press the buttons. If I do need to press the buttons, I can pop it right out of the cover, since the TPU is flexible.
