Duct Tape Tails for Your Remote

Here’s an interesting, functional, and slightly odd looking tip: Adding a duct tape tail to your remotes makes it almost impossible to lose them (in the usual manner).

From the article:

Attaching a duct-tape tail to your remotes increases their visibility and makes them almost impossible to lose. The remote may work its way into cracks between sofa cushions or into the space under a lounge chair, but the tail won’t make it in. And if you use a strongly-contrasting duct-tape color, the remote will never be able to “hide” on a black table.

You’ll want to keep the tail about 18” long, so measure out about 40” of duct tape. Attach the first end to the bottom of your remote, below the lowest button. Carefully loop the duct tape in half, folding it carefully as you attach it to itself. There should be an inch or two left at the top after folding to complete the attachment to the remote. If space permits, add an additional “belt” of tape where the tail meets the remote.
