FOB case

OK..last straw today. I came out of a store and the tailgate was up in a parking lot. I somehow leaned on the FOB and gate was up with everything in the cargo exposed. Fortunately nobody borrowed anything before it got lost. Do you have a case on your FOB that will prevent the buttons from getting accidentally pressed in. What do you have? Where did you get it? Thank you.

You could use an RFID blocking bag; I use this one. Since fobs continually broadcast a signal, thieves can intercept that signal and use it to clone your fob and steal your vehicle. Here's an article about it.

Still looking for a rigid key case. The past 2 weeks.... alarm went off today. Last week windows went down. DO NOT SIT ON THE FOB or press against it while in pocket

I do not use a rigid case, but bought the OE accessory leather covers. They're soft and adds some bulk but it does reduce the chances of pressing the buttons accidentally. That happened to me once. Coffee shop meeting and came back after an hour to see all my windows and roof wide open.
