Step 1: Get Jumbo Remote

i bought the RC for $12.89 by using a 20% off coupon at bed, bath, beyond.

Step 2: Trace Remote

traced around the remote control on a piece of tile, concrete or slate. and cut it to fit.
stick small pieces of Velcro on the bottom

Step 3: Velcro It

cut the slate to shape and Velcro the RC to the slate
(you gotta use Velcro so you can change batteries later)

Step 4: Test It Out

sleight weighs about 40lbs/sq ft./1 inch deep)
if your dog steals this or you lose it......you have problems.
good uses:
never have to look through the sofa again for that lost remote control
never argue again with your spouse about who left it where
no more dog beatings
paper weight
doorstop
small pool table
blunt weapon for cat burglars
squish fairies
etc.

    yeah...and when anyone else in the house get's tired of lugging the slate around...they'll just pull the remote off since it's just held there with velcro....thereby defeating the purpose....plus...what if you drop it on your foot? or heaven forbid you say "hey....throw me the remote" and it lands in your lap

    I just bought the exact same remote. Jimminy, that sucker's big. Even without the slate, this remote is still so big that the dog or anybody else would have a hard time sneaking off with it.
