Coiled Cable: A Simple Solution to Keep Your TV Remote Safe
If you have ever lost your TV remote, you know how frustrating it can be 🤦♀️🤦♂️😤. This is especially true for older people or kids who may have trouble remembering where they last placed the remote. But fear not! There is a simple solution that can help you keep your TV remote safe and sound – a coiled cable. 👍
Here is a three pack that I ordered to use one for my dad’s remote and a couple spare for other purposes:
The one on my dad’s remote has been in use for the past year and it has held up well. No more losing the remote control under the table or behind the couch! Sometimes the simplest solutions are the best. 😊
What is it and how does it work?
A coiled cable is an inexpensive and easy-to-use accessory that can be attached to your TV remote. The cable comes in various lengths and can be stretched out when needed, but will always return to its coiled shape when not in use.
All you need to do is attach one end of the coiled cable to your TV remote (usually with adhesive tape) and the other end to a nearby surface such as a table or chair (either with a screw or more adhesive tape). This will ensure that your remote always stays in place and is easily accessible.
How does it help?
This simple solution has many benefits:
- It prevents the loss of your TV remote
- It makes it easier for elderly people or kids to find the remote (it also makes picking up the remote a little easier)
- It saves time and frustration from searching for the remote
In addition, a coiled cable can be used for other small electronic devices such as gaming controllers (maybe, though the cable can get in the way), DVD player remotes, or audio remotes.
So next time you are worried about losing your TV remote, consider using a coiled cable. It’s a simple solution that can make a real difference! 💯
