I made a flip fob today!

I found a seller on ebay that had chrysler key fobs for the minivans I believe. It had the opening for a different button pattern but the groove around them was the same as my 300 keys.


Using my dremel I cut out the button opening from the flip fob up to the line, then on my keys I cut out the excess up to the line. I used a plastic adhesive to fill and bond them, then a quick sand and paint and I was golden. The key on the fob was the correct blank so all I had to do was have home depot cut it and I was in business. Ill really finish it up later but it was super clean. It was nice to take my spare key with a snapped off key ring loop and make a fully functional key again!

total cost $10.




My car is lower then your standards _____

Looking at this pic you need to cut up to the groove that goes around the group of keys. Leave this cut a little heavy for fitting later.



on the flip fob you trim up to the same line but from the inside out. Take one... glue it into the other and sand smooth/paint.

You could also buy a blank replacement off ebay at the same time to sacrifice.

like this

UNCUT REMOTE BLANK KEY CASE FOR Chrysler Aspen 300 | eBay

oh and you also need to cut down the flange on your rubber button pad to fit.

My spare key had the key ring part snap off so it was useless since I couldn't put it on a key ring.

I've had my flipper key fob for a few years now and I've loved it ever since! I didn't pay $200 for it either though I did get it from that seller on here from long, long ago.

I painted it to color match my car and people still sometimes look at it like, "Where the hell did you get that?" lol

I could use a spare flipper if you want to make me one too???????????
