    Anyone having issues where you drop your keys and the spring loses its tension? It has happened to me twice now and when I try to flip the key out it won't come out. Even if I try to pull the key it won't budge. Had to reset the spring, luckily I keep the black tin with the allen wrench in the glove box.

    It's happened to me before. I just make an added effort to not drop my keys again. LOL!

    Got my minimalist fob through Caliraised Offroad... Ordered it back in September because their site said they were in stock. Turned out that was false.

    Messaged about other items in the order and communications were slow (week long wait for replies).

    I saw black was in stock at the MESO site and I didn't want to order 2 black ones, so I tried to get a hold of Caliraised Offroad (calls and email) - no answer. Meso site is sold out.

    Then in January Caliraised Offroad said they had MGM fobs in stock, not black, so I said sure, I will live with that, just send what you have and we can finally close out this order.

    Warehouse pickers must have messed up, and now I have cement grey.
    Cool.

    I'll order other colors through Meso direct next time they're available, because that whole endeavor was bullshit.

    The minimalist fob itself - Awesome! Been a long time coming and happy to finally have one. Looking forward to nabbing one more for my "spare" fob.

    How is the cement color? Do you have a cement Tacoma you can put it up next to for a comparison?

    Considering surface finish and material, I would say its a damn good match. If you could get some code matched paint and test blotch on paper or plastic surface, I would bet it could blend in pretty well. The way ambient light reflects and refracts through the clear coat will give the appearance of a different color, plus the difference in surface finish.
    I'm happy with it. Still would have preferred black, Army green, or maybe another color fob, but oh well. Next one around.

    Black is in stock on MESO's site.

    That sucks about the hassle too.

    LOL I just checked yesterday; it was all showing out of stock.

    I need to order a bunch of stuff to justify the shipping cost to Canada.
    Blessing and a curse?

    MESO has good customer service. Austin helped me out when he was not obligated to at all. Good place if they would just stock up to serve the needs.

    ALL THE TIME. It left me stranded once because I didn't have the allen key with me. I'm really close to just going back to my normal key because of the hassle.

    Really interested but my only worry is the battery. Is it possible to open the doors with the touch door handle while you have a dead minimalist fob? Or will I have to carry the physical key with me?

    Can anyone tell me if this is TOAST? I dropped the fob, from waistlevel, it wouldn't flip open, so I took it apart and this part where the spring sits doesn't look like it's meant to come apart - which if that's the case I'm assuming I have to ante up for a new fob from MESO.

    Thanks for any help.

    You have to reset the spring. Its a common annoyance because probably have to reset the spring everytime you drop your keys, and will definitely be a problem if you are not at home as you will be stranded when you notice you can't flip the key open. There's video on Meso Customs website on how to do it. Doesn't take long either.
