1. Modifications enable the user to easily grasp the remote control: a key ring is attached to the remote control by a piece of wire
2. Modifications to hold the remote control firmly on the surface: newer remote controls are often round and won’t stay on the surface; pieces of tubing are glued along the edges on the underside of the remote control. Older remote controls with flat bottoms are fitted with anti-skid material underneath.
3. Modifications to be able to handle buttons: a piece of cable tie is glued on with quick glue to enlarge the buttons (video).
The user feels it is a challenge to modify everything he buys so that he can use things on his own. The pieces of tubing were cut from a catheter.
He modifies the remote control units for the stereo, TV, remote-controlled switches, etc., in this way.
