What's a good storage key combination lockbox (the kind realtors/landlords sometimes attached to the front door of properties) that can accommodate a big rental car key fob?

I'm going on a car camping trip with some friends. We'd like to make it possible to generally keep the car locked, but allow everyone access when needed. Since we're renting the car, I'm not counting on being able to get a copy of the key for each person.
One suggestion I really like has been to keep the key in a combination lockbox that we could hang from, say, the car door. I'm thinking of something along the lines of this
. Reading through the reviews of this and similar products, however, it seems like most of them aren't big enough to accommodate one of the gigantic remote/fob-style keys that all new vehicles seem to have. Additionally, it seems like all of them have a few reviews in the customer claims the lockbox simply wouldn't open after being used a certain number of times.
If anyone out there has had some experience with this style of lockbox, I'd really appreciate any insights or suggestions as to what might be a reliable option that could hold a big rental car key fob. Thanks!
