You might try this instead. My solution was to STOP carrying the garage door opener. I keep it in my car instead. Also, I installed an external keypad to open the garage when I return from a bike ride. These external keypads start at about $20 US and are wireless, so no cables need to be installed. Good luck!

There are several shapes of carabiner like hooks and connectors on the market. I am personally fond of S shaped ones that are available from about 5 mm by 10 mm to about 40 by 80 mm, or an even wider range. Out of door activity shops often stock these and other solutions. The lifehack solution would be, for me at least, a piece of string closed with a good ...

I got fed up with this and made a cover for the fob. Its just a piece of subtly-curved plastic hacked out of a milk bottle, to vaguely match the curve of the buttons. The bolts are little M3x0.5 and were about 5mm long. I opened the remote with a screwdriver in the top, under the metal keyring loop. The circutboard was just wedged in place. The bolt ...

I carry the car's remote in an external pocket (closable with a zipper) of the jacket. There is almost no chance to press the buttons accidentally. However, the "safest" storage for your remote seems to be a kind of a hard case. It can be something as simple as a tiny casserole for spices (delivered for to-go food). I use such small casserole when I need to ...

First, buy several small standard spiral keyrings, about half-inch size. When you link 2 or more together, you get a short chain between your device and the main keyring. Now everything can pivot and lay flat. Also I use the smaller key rings to organize groups of keys on my main key ring.

Based on the latest question comment i did also just have the maybe crazy notion that you could glue the fob under the bike seat or some other hidden place, then mount a switch on the handlebars, so you can open the door as you cycle toward it. You might even just be able to press the buttons by reaching under the seat, and people will wonder how you open ...

If you're any good with a soldering iron, crack the fob open and take a look at the board. It should be possible, by selective cutting of the tracks and soldering bits of wire in various places, to reconfigure the remote so that two or more buttons need to be pressed simultaneously to activate the door. If you upload a picture, I'm sure that the people here ...

As an alternative to James' proposed keypad that opens the door directly, in case you cannot find one for your door, you could take a look at those small wall mounted combination safe (like old people have to keep a key in, for their care workers to let themselves in with) - put the opener fob in it Looking at the design of the fob, might you be able to ...
