    My key fob has a button that flips out a key for the ignition. There is a button for locks and horn. I am forever accidentally unlocking my truck or setting off the horn accidentally with the fob in a pocket. Short of a hard glasses case is there a better way to carry a fob like this? Is there a belt case for this?

    This may not be what you would want to do, but I carry my keys (and two key fobs) hanging off belt loop of pants. There are various ways you can do it. When dressed up I'm usually either carrying a soft brief case or traveling and don't need my keys, and I put then away in the bag or leave in my duffel.

    I have tried carrying them off a belt loop. In doing things i have leaned up against something and hit those buttons. I need a small hard case they will fit in that will attach to my belt. Never felt secure with leaving them in a bag.
    If the bag dissapears then these expensive keys are gone and I'm stranded.
    I tried a soft phone type case and still set off those buttons. I have a talent for it. It takes very little to depress those buttons.

    You can find flip out sleeves where the key is attached on one corner and pivots out: https://goo.gl/images/AFqGm3

    Or you can get a larger cover that insets the buttons: http://www.osirusa.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=OSIR-MZSPACE-WH&Category_Code=OAZR

    Or one that replaces the buttons: http://www.osirusa.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=OSIR-MUZZV3&Category_Code=OAZR

    Or just a plastic sleeve: http://www.osirusa.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=OSIR-MUZZERO&Category_Code=OAZR

    Or maybe you just need bigger pants!

    Thanks for tips. I will look into these suggestions. What amazes me is that i can be a pretty good distance away in another building and still set it off.
    For today I am using a GI issue compass pouch with a thick cardboard insert. Both keys fit in it. Those buttons cant be depressed in that very easily but with me it could still be possible.

    My Infinit Key fob was constantly setting off my alarm. It got to the point took the key apart and removed the panic button on the board.

    One of these pouches from countycomm might fit your car key fob and allow you to attach it to your belt:

    I haven’t personally bought one of these but have been recommended by another user on here. I am considering getting my own.
