This instructable will hopefully show you how to keep your remote exactly where you want it;
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
first of all I guess I should start by saying... If you take apart, or alter your TV remote... (Hacking by the way is just a small step away from vandalism, so)... well let's just say your remote has a chance of not working from that point on, and YOU are fully responsible for what ever damage might come from your "hack".
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.
