Garage Door Remote Button Cover
Category: Garage door accessory, protection, house
Problem: If the button on the garage door remote control on a key ring is accidentally hit, the garage door could open without the owner knowing it.
Action: I found a piece of sturdy plastic, cut a small piece out, and used tape as a hinge so it laid over the buttons, preventing any accidental depression of the buttons.
Result: It works great!
Additional Thoughts: If I was going to manufacture this, instead of a flap, I would have something that slid over the top of the button that could be then easily opened or closed with a thumb.
