Constantly losing my remote control

I'm so fed up with losing my Roku remote control  I'm so sick of not being able to find the control when I drop it on the floor or when I have it underneath my bed or whatever. I'm so tired of it why did you have to make it so small who thought of this idea and it uses batteries More than I use in my other remote controls I can't believe it.

That doesn't happen with me. I wonder what I'm doing wrong.

Re: Constantly losing my remote control

I think your remote probably needs a tail or a leash of some sort, so it is leashed to something large.  I searched for remote leash on Amazon and many pre-made options came up.  For example:

I'm sure there are many DIY solutions too like taping something like this to the remote:

Stuff you already have like some string and packing tape might work for you as well.

Most all remotes these days are small and light. It may also depend on just which remote you have.

A really cheap method is to simply use some string. You may be able to simply hook one end into the battery cover edge, and tie the other to an armrest or table leg.

Amazon has these. There are others with various colors. Just ensure you get one that fits the remote.

It's the size of a grain of rice.  I can be holding it and not be able to find it.  Drives me nuts.
