I have a battery powered clock that ticks too loud. I can be in another room and hear it over the TV or radio. When I'm in the room, the ticking annoys me... almost like the clock is mocking me

the thing is... its SUCH a cool looking clock and it really looks nice in the room.

I've taken the batteries out, but would like the clock to work again someday

any suggestions?

yes please! I'd love to swap ATC's with you.

i just saw your post. i have the same problem with ticking clocks. sometimes just moving the clock to a different area of the room helps with the acoustics, or if there is room inside of the clock, you could place a little cotton in the "box". just be sure to not block any of the clock componets.

if the clock is hanging on the wall, you could cover the back of the clock with a thick material to soften the noise bouncing off of the wall.

Set the clock on something soft,such as a foldedwashcloth or towel.This will help quiet it.

Be aware that some clocks are just loud and that nothing will make them into well behaved clocks.

We have had clocks that we glued felt to the bottom of and stuffed with cotton balls. We have lived with clocks that we wanted to set in the hall so we could sleep. And eventually, I just took the batteries out and lived without clocks.
