What are the best accessories for your AirTags?

Before purchasing an AirTag accessory, you'll want to think about where you'll want to attach it. If you're planning to use it as your keychain, I like the CYRILL AirTag Case with Key Ring. Keys will be securely attached to the leather case, and your AirTag will be securely attached inside it.

If you want to stick the AirTag onto or inside something, the adhesive-backed Moment mounts are a great choice. There are several different models to choose from, but they all stick onto hard surfaces and even soft fabrics, allowing you to stick your AirTag securely inside a clothing item or bag. They also happen to hide the AirTag, so you're not advertising that it's a valuable item.

If you want to attach your AirTag to a bag, suitcase, stroller, or anything else with a handle or strap, look for an accessory with a carabiner clip or a loop like Belkin Secure Holder with Strap.
