This weekend I made a flip key fob for my python alarm. If you have a python alarm that uses the remote bellow or a viper alarm remote that is similar in shape and you want a flip key you can do it now.

Here are pics. I can do DIY on it, its pretty easy so if any of you want it then Ill post it up. For this one I used the Nissan Flip key.

Basically what I did was take the black part of the original remote and trimmed it small enough to fit inside the nissan fob. The inside of the nissan fob is almost made for the trimmed version of the black piece. I then glued the black part into the nissan fob using plastic model glue and put plastic epoxy over the top of it then sanded smooth and painted it with Plasti Dip spray which gave it that plastic looking finish. The reason its recessed is because sometimes the buttons would be pressed by accident on the original remote. Also if you open it up it looks like it was made for it unlike some other flip key retrofits that have glue all over the place and other stuff to hold the circuit board down. The key part was just trimmed to the shape of the nissan key. Thats about it, but like I said if I get enough bites on this then Ill post a writeup with pics.

SECURITY FIRST > BLING LATER
owning an teg is all about how much of a risk you are willing to take

When I was looking for an alarm I did a lot of research on what could fit and what would not and into what fob. Since I have seen nearly all the flip fobs out there if you want post a alarm remote that you own and I might help you out with a suggestion on what flip fob would work for your specific alarm. Also if you do this let me see the actual circuit board shape.


Actually I dont know if I want to post a diy since I might ruin the rarity for my self LOL. But I kid I kid Ill post it later this week. See Andy, even you have jumped on this without a problem on rarity.

But post your specific remote and I may be able to help you out. I have seen flip fobs from replicas to Lambos, the only thing is that if your fob is circular like a GM one or have a big screen then you might have to really fab something up.
