Intro: Repair Broken Key Fob
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.
- Needle nose plyers
- Forseps (used only one of them
Step 2: Time to Start Wrapping
I remove the rest of the broken part off and sanded part of it down.
After several false starts, I finally found a pattern that I thought was best all around for use and retention. Follow my notes on each photo.
Step 3: All Finished
When the battery fails I will have to redo the repair. Maybe I can make it look better or break down and purchase another case.
Thanks for looking at this instructable.
