How to Prevent Losing Your Tesla Model S Key Fob

Tesla Model S Key Fob

Losing your beloved Tesla Model S key fob is a frightening experience that can be averted with a bit of preventative maintenance.

We still recall that glorious moment when the clouds gave way to a heavenly ray of light that cascaded onto our open palms as our Tesla Sales Representative handed us the mystical Tesla key fob.  Part Matchbox™ car, part trinket, the Model S key fob doesn’t come outfitted with your traditional key ring which makes it extremely susceptible to being lost, hidden or eaten.  Yes, eaten.

Key-Wristlet

Here are some preventative maintenance ideas that could keep you from losing your Tesla Model S key fob.

  • Wear your Model S key as a wristlet (not recommended)
  • Tie a lanyard onto the end of the key fob and wear it around your neck
  • Store the Model S key fob within a USB Flash Drive Case and attach it to your other household keysets.
  • Use a “FobPocket” key holder

Another great solution is to use a Wireless RF Key Finder that electronically locates your lost key fob (or any other household device such as a remote control, cell phone) within a 60 foot radius of you.  The compact and lightweight device is hardly noticeable and can attach via a keyring or adhesive. If you still happen to lose your key, replacing your Tesla Model S key fob can be handled at any Tesla Service Center for the price of $300 per key fob + an $85 programming fee.
