Finally pics of my Fob Cover

After many months I finally had someone take pictures of my Fob Cover. The quality of the picture of the back is not as good as I would like it but, its as good as I'm going to get. The material is ABS plastic and it goes over front and back with 3m tape that is supplied. You can purchase it at www.mrkgroup.net

Do you think there is some impact resistance to this material or is it mostly just aesthetic and keeps the fob from being scratched?

And the point of this would be...?
Take a key fob already as big as a Midwestern state and add to its bulk and overall mass?

Mostly to key the fob from being scratched and to add some color to the fob. The material holds up well. I have had his fob covers for all of my vehicles for years. I understand a dealer is considering a bulk purchase and will have his dealership name printed on them.

As pointless and looks as bad as when people used to cover their sofas with plastic. Dumb.
