Product Description

The Tek Pal is the easiest to see and easiest to USE large-button available. With only 6 large, lighted buttons, the Tek Pal only does what you need with your television. Lost remotes, frustrating setup instructions and hard-to-read buttons are a thing of the past. Tek Pal boils TV remote control technology down to be as simple as possible. The Tek Partner and Big Button universal remote controls are the largest remotes on the market. The large, lit-up buttons allow those with vision impairments to easily control their televisions, VCRs, DVD players as well as satellite and cable boxes. The size of the remotes also ensure that they will not get lost between the couch cushions! These universal remote controls were designed specifically for people who may be visually impaired, allowing them to operate their home entertainment devices all from one large, lighted-button universal remote control. Hy-Tek offers 2 different remotes to choose from, the extra-large Tek Partner remote and the sleeker Big Button remote.

This is a perfect, simple remote for a TV for someone who has limited vision and/or physical ability. Large buttons, clear and well lit and foolproof once it is setup. The setup is simple to describe but takes more pushes of the button than expected. Patience pays off.

This was easy to set up with the Sony TV. Easy to use. Large shaped buttons are very useful for those with limited sight. Large unit means it is easy to locate and does not get lost between the cushions. We used the TV programming feature to only have those TV stations which were the viewers favorites. This means that with the channel up or down there are only a few stations which can be watched, That is we have eight stations instead of the hundred plus available. This eliminates a lot of confusion.

My grampa is 98. His biggest problem is trying to see the buttons on the remotes and only hit one button when he presses on one. Remotes these days seem to have more and more buttons and because there are more they are closer together. He was always messing up his satellite channels as he would hit the wrong thing and it would somehow mess up his channels.

We got him the Tek Pal and it is wonderful. Only 6 buttons, large ones, that light up and they have large amounts of space between them. I wish I knew about this when my Mom was alive and having problems......

Suggestion, get this product out there to seniors homes and gated communities etc...I think a lot of people would be interested. Great product.

The Tek Pal TV Remote does not connect with RCA brand of new flat screen TV. The set up instructions are simple and straight forward but the product does not connect with the RCA TV. I have tried to get this remote to control the TV but it doesn't do it. Buy it at your own peril - "you pays your money and you takes your chances". Cheap at the price but a waste of good money nonetheless.

I purchased this remote for my 84 year old mother-in-law, who is sight impaired, mobility impaired and has trouble grasping many new technologies. The remote that came with the new 46" HD TV (which is the first TV she's been able to see for years) was far beyond her. This remote paired with the TV in moments, and she was able to understand it, find the right buttons and make it work. This remote will not work with a digital box from your cable company, so if that's what you have to use in your areas, don't buy it. Also, the lights on the right hand panel died about a month in, but the remote still works fine.

Bought this for my mother due to her limited abilities. She was not able to deal with complicated remotes. Many of the other simple remotes still offered the ability to control other devices which meant that she could inadvertently push a function button and find that the remote no longer controls the TV.

This remote is perfect for her. Big buttons simple operations. The keys light up which is great. It is also sturdy. The remote gets dropped a lot and it has held up to the abuse very well.

I used to get calls every 2nd day about problems with TV operation. Now my mom is happy and there are no more panic phone calls.

Perfect for anyone with limited abilities that only uses a TV.

Bought this for my 91 years old grandmother. She has vision problems. Now she likes it so much she would kick anyone trying to steal her new remote control. This is an absolute requirement for any people with vision problems.

I purchased this product for my elderly mother who has trouble operating TV remotes because of poor eyesight. At first, we thought it would not work because the cable feed was not hooked directly to the TV but rather to a "cable box". Problem was solved when the TV Cable Company suggested we hook up the cable feed directly to the TV and bypass the "box". Works great now and Mom has had no problems.
