Just like your contact-less payment cards stand a chance of being tapped into by a miscreant with a POS device, your car’s key-fob stands a risk of being hacked into, its signal being boosted or duplicated, and used to unlock your car. Ever since the introduction of remote-controlled key-fobs, car theft hasn’t decreased, but rather has seen a 56% spike according to the office of national statistics.
The problem with key-fobs is that security for this is easy to compromise. People have been known to use jammers, replicators, boosters, and other easy-to-make devices that capture the codes your key-fob sends to the car, allowing hackers to replicate it to gain access of your vehicle, a practice known as key-fob spoofing. Now while automobile manufacturers are only catching up to these hackers, there’s a simple way of mitigating this problem entirely. A good old Faraday Cage.
Designed to protect your key-fob from physical damage as well as digital theft, the KeyBlock is an RFID-blocking case that you can store the fob and keys in. The fob sits inside a compact, specialized hard-case enclosure, while the keys hang from it. Practically the size of your key-fob itself, you can carry the KeyBlock around with you. The RFID-blocking housing prevents spoofers and hackers from replicating the signature key-code your fob generates, and therefore denies them access to your car. When you DO need to use the fob, just open the box and slide it out using a slider built right into the KeyBlock’s side. An internal spring mechanism keeps your fob in place, preventing it from sliding out if held upside-down, and a small leash holds your keys too, letting you open your car the old-fashioned way, should you choose.
Designed to be compact, the KeyBlock fits right into the palm of your hand, and can slide right into your pockets without adding any bulk. Crafted from fine leather, the KeyBlock can be customized to match your car style, allowing you to choose between different tans, finishes, from Tesla’s signature blue, to Aston Martin’s carbon-fiber print. It even comes with a customizable base, letting you engrave your name and phone number into the base of the KeyBlock, if it ever gets lost or left behind!

Two thieves with commercially available transmitters can boost the signal from your key inside your house and gain access to your car in under 60 seconds.
More Than Just a Key Safe
You wouldn’t buy a car that barely held together. Or shoes. Or windows. You lock your house door at night, not just roll a boulder in front of it. This is an elegant solution to an increasing problem.
Push Button Ejector
Unlocking your car at a distance is a convenience we don’t want to deprive you of. KeyBlock is easy to use single-handed, leaving your other hand free to carry the shopping, open the door for your partner or keep your child close.
Why settle for some plastic or polyurethane cover? They have the actual leathers used in Aston Martin and Tesla models to cover your keys. You don’t compromise on security, so why compromise on looks?
Composite Construction for Maximum Signal Blocking
Multi-layered RFID shielding within a modern polymer housing, wrapped in wear-resistant leather. Security that doesn’t sacrifice style.
For keyless ignition the key is ejected and held halfway with our patent pending internal mechanism. The single-button operation makes it a dream to use, so you can get on the road quickly and easily.
They have incorporated a leather cap to hold your key secure. Simply pop it open, use the slider button and your key fob is there. Stainless steel as well, so it isn’t going to wear out.
But what about your other keys, the ones that can’t be scanned (as easily, anyway)? A built-in split ring allows you the option of keeping all your keys together.
Stands Up for You
They wanted this to look great even when on the side board in your house, so they designed it to stand wherever it was placed, keeping your keybowl organised.
Put your name on it, phone number, a message or a date. Whatever you like. Probably avoid your registration though. Gives the game away too easy.
Now you can keep the key in as good condition as the day you bought it, all while keeping it safe.
KeyBlock is sized to fit neatly in any pocket, whether suit, trouser or otter.
