Datatool Alarm Remote Key Fob Repair

If you have a Datatool alarm for your car or motorcycle, the chances are that you've broken one of these. Here's a way to repair the fob that is an improvement on the original.

The loop was originally laser-cut from acrylic. See below for the cutting path if you would like to reproduce.

Update March 2019

I have since designed the part for 3D printing. See below for the file required to duplicate this part.
