Having had the Fob separate from the Key+keyring twice at the dealers on the day I bought my 2019 Ioniq, and then again late at night when the fob landed on the driveway, I decided that Hyundai's design was appallingly bad, and very likely to lose me a fob in next to no time. So I have made a small 3D printed plastic Guard, which slides into the slot in the key, and is clamped tight with a small screw. This is now available for sale on eBay, here:
Hyundai Fob & Key Acidental Separation Loss Preventer Guard Protector | eBay

I hope this item will be of some use to people here! I plan to offer it for sale in the Classifieds here, a bit cheaper as eBay won't be taking 10% of cost+postage as their fee (though Paypal still will!).

I'd be interested in feedback as to exactly which Hyundai cars & what year have this poorly designed fob. They do seem to have quite a variety around the place!

Not to steal your thunder @HandyAndy, but there are already some silicon type covers available on ebay that stop the release button being accidentally pressed.
They actually look quite good too, lots of colours.
I also have a chrome one on the spare key that I got from aliexpress
Mine used to come off for a fun!
Never had a problem since.
Good luck with yours though, as it does retain the look of the Key.

Ooh, that's really quite nice! Might have bought that myself, if I'd known it existed! Nice to know my price is competitive, now I've found it where you said! :)

I did look at some of the silicon covers on amazon but most of the reviews said they didn't fit properly!
