I again disagree with most of you. ;)
Any tin can serves as Faraday’s cage. When you learn to put a key in a jar, you will always find it there. At least in Finland in winter it is difficult to press buttons with two hands (gloves in hand).

But both tricks work well. :D

Why not press the buttons when your inside your warm house with your gloves off. You don't have to be next to the car to turn the key fob off.

I must be doing it wrong?..I thought you had to press the lock button once and then press the unlock button twice. It looked like you just pressed the lock button 3 times.?

:D Just press "Lock" with a tip of thumb and then, while holding it, with a back of the same thumb double press "Unlock"
Here without gloves :D

That's fine. Gotta try if I could do that.
Admittedly, we here in the sparsely populated countryside are not as sophisticated thieves as in the "big villages"
