Why do I need a remote control case
With the help of the cover, you will protect your remote control from unnecessary scratches, damage and rapid wear, because the main purpose of this accessory is protection. But many of them can not only extend the life of the device, but also make it more convenient to use. With the cover, the TV remote control can sit better in the hand and become more pleasant to the touch.
What is the functionality
Here it is already worth disassembling with specific examples. The functionality may vary depending on the type, manufacturer, etc. For example, a cover for LG TV remote control suitable for models: AN-MR600 / LG AN-MR650 / LG AN-MR18BA / AN-MR19BA / AN-MR20GA, has a backlight function in the dark and prevents the device from sliding, for a more comfortable and firm grip. If you are interested in buying a cover, then look at specific models based on your TV model.
Types of covers
In addition to the silicone products mentioned above, there are also film, heat-shrinkable and leather products. They differ in price, quality and convenience. Probably the best option would be all the same silicone, because of ease of use and availability, but for someone the heat shrink with film is better suited.
Heat-shrinkable cover for remote control [/ caption] Heat-shrinkable in its essence works in the same way as film, but with an important nuance. With this case, you don’t have to worry about the same size. As can be understood from the name “heat shrinkable” after exposure to a certain temperature, it fits snugly to the control panel. So all you need is a hair dryer. After placing the device in the case, you need to turn on the hairdryer and use it to adjust the accessory to the device. It takes very little time. Plain film packaging is the cheapest and most inconvenient option. It is not as pleasant and comfortable as silicone and does not adhere tightly to the remote control like a heat shrink one. It might only be a good idea to use one if you don’t use the remote often and don’t want to spend a lot of money on a case. A leather case will doif you have to use the remote a lot and want to give it maximum protection from damage and dirt. This type is more expensive and may not be entirely convenient (depending on the model), but it will last longer than any other covers and will provide the highest level of protection. You can also find plastic accessories to protect the remote control. An example of a regular film:

How to choose a protective TV case for yourself and your needs
First, decide on which TV model you have a remote control from:
Sony, Samsung, LG , Wimax, etc. Perhaps you use Apple TV services and have a remote control from it.
Based on your model, find the cover that suits you on the Internet. If you have a TV accessories store near your home, you can look there too. For example, in St. Petersburg, such covers can be bought in almost any large hardware store (DNS, Mvideo, Eldorado). Additionally, you can look at online stores. You can buy covers for the TV remote control in Moscow in the same way. Check in online stores and hardware stores. Now we need to discuss the price and convenience of the various accessories.
Leather covers will be stronger and will not wear out quickly, but it is not a fact that they will be convenient to use.
Silicone cases are cheaper and will last less, but a large number of such cases are universal, which means they can be used with any remote control. In addition, they sit more comfortably in the hand, which means it will be more pleasant to use them. Leather covers are more expensive and are mostly made to order, it will be almost impossible to find one in a store. It will cost more, but it will also last longer, but the convenience will depend only on the quality of the selected material.

Remained are the usual cases, which are more reminiscent of the usual packaging. They are the cheapest, but if the remote control is not used frequently, such a shell can last for a long time. Only it provides minimal protection and convenience in use should not be expected. Suitable only for those who rarely use the remote control. Taking these recommendations into account, you can choose the cover for the remote control you need. Shrink Sleeve for TV Remote: https://youtu.be/eqe1sfVUvEc

The most popular of these campaigns in Russia is Wimax. Finite and Piko are also involved in production. All of these companies produce quality remote control covers, whether they are silicone or plastic.
Silicone cover for LG TV remotes [/ caption] You may wonder: “Why should I buy something other than universal covers?” The answer is simple – not all universal accessories provide equally good protection on different devices. There are also universal models only for a specific brand that do not fit other remotes. For more convenient use, it is recommended to take covers that take into account the features of the structure and design of your remote control and do not make using it inconvenient.

How to make a case for the remote control with your own hands
Plastic types of covers are quietly made at home. Of course, you can attach an ordinary cellophane shell or use the packaging from the remote control, but for reliability it is better to make a plastic case. There is nothing complicated in the process. You’ll need:
- Soldering iron or iron.
- Plastic stationery bag.
Measure the dimensions of the remote control and mark them on the package. After stepping a centimeter from the edge of the file, start soldering according to the marked dimensions. After that, you need to put the cover on the remote control and hold it on the edge with a soldering iron, after pressing the end of the remote control with a ruler. If you don’t have a soldering iron at home, it’s best to use an iron. In this case, you need to place the remote control immediately in the corner of the bag, so that it is at an approximate distance of 2 cm from the top and bottom parts. Iron the edges, the temperature should be about 200 degrees. Excess edges can be cut off. This completes the production of the cover, when this one is worn out, it will be easier than ever to do the same.
