    This is funny and could be true for my 89 year old mother.

    Hmm, I don't think masking tape is sufficient to stop those buttons from getting pressed. I think a metal wrap would be needed. :p

    I did that for a customer one time, at their request. I used some light cardboard and electrical tape.

    My GF's mother wraps her remotes in saran wrap so they don't get dirty. Of course, she has OCD. They still work.

    I actually did that on two of my mother's remotes. That was a few years ago, she is far beyond that now (demented). But it worked for a couple of years.

    I will probably need to do that for my parents in the near future. But what they need now is old-style corded remote or one on a chain, like at the bank, so they will quit losing/misplacing them!
