I have no camera, and this is my very first instructable so have mercy.
I hope you enjoy this lil' puppy.
Step 1: First of All
Now the basic idea behind this hack is that if something is tied down it can't get lost. If you have kids things get lost. so after buying 4 new remotes; and still having to stand up n walk over to my TV because remotes get lost more often than a dyslexic navigator with a bad hangover stuck in the Bermuda triangle, I decided to get some relatively light weight chain and 2 eye hooks from my local hardware store ( I like Lowes, but where ever you go is kosher.) and tie down the thing.
anyway, here is a list of stuff you will need.......
one cheap TV remote; $6.
aprox. 6 or 7 feet of chain; $3
2 eye hooks; 50 cents
2 lil link things that you conect the chain and eye hooks; $2
and use of a dremmel tool, and/or drill.
Step 2: Opening the Box.
Step 3: Find a Place to Make a Hole.
My happy place was in the lower left-hand corner. (part d)
now you cut that lil happy place out, and then drill a hole in the top and bottom pieces of the remote body such that they line up with the now vacant area formally known as the happy place. as you do this be careful to not snap off the lil' red LED or the I.R. LED (parts C)because that would then become a not so very happy place.
Step 4: Put It Back Together
Last but not lest on this step is to put the end of your chain (I used black chain cuz' it matched my remote) through the link. then close it nice n' tight.
A basic description of the link is; It is a rectangle shaped chain-link that has a threaded opening on one side (part f), and a little cuff that screws down on the thread (part e). It is normally used to link two bits of chain together.
Step 5: The Last Step
I hope you like my lil sketch of an eye hook by the way.
now be prepared for your friends to laugh, your kids to fuss, and your significant other to just shake there head n' think "why am I with this goof-ball?"
I hope you enjoyed this lil' instructable.
