Low prfile key FOB cap?

Loving my new F60. Not loving how big and bulky the key FOB is (as minor an issue as it is, it annoys me)
Ive seen online and in some very old threads some options for a low profile cap cover for the Gen3 FOB. Can anyone share any links or info on where I can get or order one?
Thank you!

I am using this one, too. But my experience was that the plastic/acrylic ones I ordered cracked in time. I ended up ordering one in polished nickel steel which is doing fine. Just one thing about the description, the "polished" part is, let's say, "relatively polished"... it is not highly polished to a mirror finish, and the layering process used during the 3D printing is slightly visible on the exterior surface. Apparently it can now be made in some materials that were not available when I got mine 18 months ago. All that said, I am happy I got it... it's obviously a lot smaller and easier to carry in my pocket.
