It's a bit annoying when the key pops out of the fob while it's in my pocket. It will eventually pop a hole in the pocket I'm sure. Anyway I've been using electric tape on the sides to keep it from opening. The key to it is to make the top part not move at all is when the button gets pushed, the key stays locked in. While it was working fine, I decided to switch out the electrical tape for some gaff tape I have here laying around the arena. It's a bit stickier and will probably hold up longer than the electrical tape. I hardly every use the actual key part, so if I do happen to need it for anything, I can just pull off the tape and apply another layer when I have a chance.

I was so excited to see a novel idea. Well, at least the tape color matches the key fob.

This is a good option if it keeps driving you crazy.

Like jeepdabest said a rubber band, I use one of those broad ones that come on some vegetables, I have proximity, so I never take the keys out of my pocket.
