Is that a weed on the table

Going to try these for my sister and mum, both have Toyota key fobs with broken buttons. Thanks!

Hi Chris.

I had to fix the other key fob at some stage and both lasted quite a while. However, when the second button broke on one of the fobs, I actually ended up getting a repair kit from eBay. There are quite a few around. An example is http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/281470496621?lpid=122&chn=ps&adgroupid=33676502101&rlsatarget=pla-271883359395&adtype=pla&poi=&googleloc=1006524&device=c&campaignid=707291931&crdt=0

Thanks, I have looked at them before but wasn't sure on who would be able to cut the actual key part.

It seems like a while ago that I did it but if I recall, I just bought a kit with the two buttons, a battery and two switches. The buttons are on a bit of thin rubber and can be fitted in place of the old / broken ones. I might have had to do a bit of trimming with a craft knife though. They did not seem to have these repair kits around when I had to do the first repair but it took me a few prints to get the part right for my printer. Luckily, it does not take long to print one though.

Do you have by any chancemaking the whole plip casing file?
Mine tends to crack around the key base.

Sorry no, our key fobs seem OK at the moment so I haven't had to consider this yet.

I thought that i have seen http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:21343 before. So now I can break my car keys when ever I want ;)

Awesome. This is the perfect example of why 3d printers rock. 8-)
