The Tesla Ring is an aftermarket ring that functions just like a Tesla key card. Today I’ll be reviewing CNICK’s Tesla ring. The reason I chose CNICK is because they offer a variety of color and finish options, and their rings looks great!

How the Tesla Ring works

To lock or unlock the Tesla, is the same as the Tesla Key card. When wearing the ring, you basically fist-bump your Tesla halfway up between the middle pillar and the door locks/unlocks. Your knuckle (not the ring itself) should be touching the pillar. 


To start the Tesla, place your knuckle on the center console, behind the cupholders.

CNICK’s Tesla ring comes in a wood or ceramic finish.  I love the look of the rings and bracelets. They have many different color options.

The smallest size is a size 6. However, this was too big for my wife (even on her thumb), so she purchased a ring size adjuster from Amazon. The ring adjuster did not compromise the function.

We’ve had our rings for 6 months now, and wear them 24/7. CNICK advises to avoid wearing the ring while lifting weights or with detergent, however we’ve just been too lazy to take the ring off. As a result, the ring edges are starting to show some wear (pictured below).  The function of the ring, however, has not been altered. If you are lazy like me, be aware of the risks.

How Easily Does it Detect?

There’s a specific small area that the ring has to be placed in order to be detected. When I first got the ring, it took me several tries to find that area.

I ended up just putting a sticker on my Tesla, so I know exactly where to place my ring.

What I Love about the Tesla Ring

It looks great!

  • The ring is piece of jewelry and has now replaced my wedding band. I love that it is not only decoration, but also it is functional. 

It is waterproof

  • I can now go kayaking with just my ring, and  I don’t have to worry about bringing my phone or keycard to get back into my Tesla.

No charging needed 

It has replaced my Tesla Key Card 

  • I no longer have to worry about carrying around my key card or if my phone battery dies.


What I Don’t Love about the Ring

CNICK recommends to NOT to use the ring when lifting weights or with detergents, as it can scratch and damage the ring

  • If you follow their recommendations, then you’ll likely be fine. However, for me, I like to keep mine on even at the gym, and the edges have scratched slightly.  

Needs to be in perfect location to work

  • There’s a small area on the pillar of the Tesla that the ring needs to be placed in order to work. If you don’t know where that is, it may take you some extra time to unlock or lock your Tesla. Alternatively, you can place a sticker like I did.
