Default Extra Large Key for Club Car

Hi,

Just bought a 2009 Club Car Precedent. My problem is my manual dexterity has gone downhill recently. It is difficult for me to grasp, insert and turn the little T-shaped standard key.\

Before I go off and create a solutioln, I thought maybe someone had already solved the problem. Maybe a source for a larger key, a key holder, or a DIY solution.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks...Lampooner

Actually... There is!!! (kinda' sorta')

Being a locksmith, and not wanting to spend $3.00 for an extra key at the CC dealer that's 40 miles away,
I found that a few Honda and Yamaha motorcycle keys fit the CC key switch!

The one I used was an ILCO (the key blank brand name) X138 / HD75

Now... a good hardware store that cuts a lot of keys, or a locksmith should have this key blank,
and, the Honda key is just a tad shorter from the tip to the shoulder stop,
(a GOOD locksmith will cut the shoulder stop back)
BUT... it really doesn't matter, because Club Car key switches only have 1 tumbler! (at the one and only cut)
As long as they cut it using the shoulder stop, you should be good to go!

We had a customer in the auto shop I used to work at that had partial paralysis on his right side. He had his ignition key in a plastic holder that gave him more leverage. The key was sandwiched in between two pieces that were shaped to fit the palm of his hand well. I would check with mobility stores and handicap vehicle upfitters for solutions.

But I think it would also be fairly easy to make something.

My '86 Club Car came with the larger key when I bought it. It looks like a replacement key though.

The numbers on it are: 6-161A C.C.

Hope this helps,
