griz bear,
great idea! what Toyota blank will fit? Locksmith told me to go to ebay and get a 2012 Sube "service key," but they don't seem to exist, only Sube keys with unprogrammed chip and those cost around $50.

Thanks!

The ‘problem’ with the OB is the lock lever/latch is dumb/mechanical, as much as unlocking the door with the key (the master at that, mind you) will trigger the alarm.
I’ll bet you can still (should you try hard enough) lock yourself out, even with PB ignition.

Anything is possible,, I remember taking a drive 2 hours away to pickup plow for my pickup on the way home after starting out on the interstate I saw the pickup's cap needed to be secured better. I pulled over got out,then my son got out as well and hit the power lock button while closing the door, there we stood freezing outside light snow coming down pickup running, both our cell phones (and coats) in the nice warm truck with our thumbs up our a$$es trying to flag down other drivers to call for HELP. A key hidden on the outside of your vehicle now sounds like a great idea.

I also found it annoying that when you manually lock the OB with the spare non-remote key it arms the alarm system, and then you can't open it again without setting off the alarm.

Luckily it's really easy to toggle the alarm system on/off, but the way the manual describes the process makes it seem daunting.

I like to use the spare key when I go running at parks since it's smaller and easier to carry. Now I just turn the alarm system off before I leave, lock the car, and turn the alarm back on when I get back.

Somehow I managed to lock keys in my OB, with the engine running. Not sure how the heck it happened, but it was a few weeks ago in the middle of a snowstorm at a Ski resort right after my last run. I stayed warm in the bar while i waited an hour for help to arrive. I need to find a way to hide the valet key somewhere under the vehicle
