    I'm trying to figure out what this is, I cannot find items similar on Google.
    It's a red plastic key, no "key teeth" but has what looks like a Sim card at the end of the key. "Sim card" has 6 segments to it, the other side has a groove. Held above a light there are no other components inside the key. IMG_20181114_102120928~2.jpg IMG_20181114_103634197~2.jpg

    It looks to me like a E-stop override or operator for a E-stop limit switch.
    These are used on CNC M/C operator doors etc and must operate the switch(s) inside sequentially.
    If not, it bears a striking resemblance.
    Where did you get it?

    Haven't a clue where I aquired it, found it in a box full of odds and ends and other keys.
    Thank you for your aid in figuring out what it could be, still cannot locate a pic on Google but if that's what it is than I've not got a use for it :p
