I have a ring attached to the bottom of the fob and it's serviceable. Kia kinda set you up for disapointment as it's really inelegant to use a ring or carabiner with the fob...alas.

Hmmm....I never really had an issue wth that, but I will admit to limiting it to just my whale shark (which the front end of the Stinger sorta resembles) and the leather wrist strap. Of course I'm also stuck with the remote start fob also.

You do know you don't need to carry the starter fob, just use your main fob to start the car.. Hit the lock button once then the trunk button twice..

I've never been able to get it to work... also, this way I save the battery in the main fob and supposedly the dedicated one has a greater range.

I didn't get a starter fob one night bought my Kia.
