I am a little bit hard on my key fob. I seem to have to replace it every couple of years. They always break in the same place. The key fob still works it just will not stay on the key chain. I did not want to spend any money on replacing the key fob, even though the prices have dramatically come down.

I was thinking about how to repair it...
  • JB Weld, NO! 
  • Print a case for it like a cell phone case, NO! I do not have a 3d printer!
  • Then just like a light bulb bursting to life it came to me, to wire wrap it like I have seen some jewelry. 

Step 1: Materials and Tools

  • I already had a new roll of safety wire that I had purchased for another project.

Tools (used)
  • Needle nose plyers
  • Forseps (used only one of them

Thanks a bunch!
Thank you! That was very helpful and I could actually do it (not as well as you, but it works!)
good idea, a good improvement would be to use plumbers putty instead.
