The ad says $80 for 6 keys. Don't know if that includes chipped ones.

On their website the fob itself is $39 and then the blanks are $5 each. I watched a review on YouTube right after the video shark posted. He said it was alright, but plastic parts were starting to break after 4 months of use. When I take the bike I only have the bike key and my house key. But if I took all of my keys with me everywhere, that could be useful.

The concept is great....but most car keys have chips like shark88 said...so not sure how that would work.

I like the option of removing a key from the rest of the chain....not sure how easy it is to remove a key and swap it out with another.

If you looked at their website, one of the keys would be assigned as the chip key.

I only understand what I don't understand.

I know...but I have 2 cars with chips besides the bike and trailer key, house key.

6 keys is fine, but if you can only have one chip key, then it isn't practical for me.
