DIY project makes it impossible to lose the remote


Ever come home from a long day at work only to discover that the TV remote is missing? I feel your pain. Nothing peeves me more than wanting to kick back and watch a little tube, but then discovering I need to go on a search-and-rescue mission for the remote. Sure you can try to remember to put back the remote when done watching the television, or you could get one of those high tech remote tracking devices, but how about this for an idea?

Here is a low-tech solution to the age old problem of the lost remote. Just take a piece of railroad track, weld a chain onto that and then attach the other end to a brace with the remote firmly secured inside. Viola! No more lost remote.

What a simple idea. And yet, I strongly suspect this project was inspired by a few gas station restroom keys I’ve seen in the past. Although, I guess you could still potentially even lose this remote, but I imagine it wouldn’t get very far and think of the upper body workout you would get in the process.
