So you've got a shiny new AirTag (or several) to track your most precious items, and now you need some kind of AirTag accessory to actually secure the AirTag to the item. Apple offers some nice ones, of course. But you've got lots of other options besides Apple's offerings or just MacGyvering some kind of solution with duct tape. Here are some of the best accessories for AirTags.
Available in both glitter and plain TPU, this case offers protection (and color if you want it) without a lot of bulk. Pop the AirTag inside and then slip it onto your key ring or anything else you need to track.
Apple's simple and elegant aesthetic is on full display here. Snap your AirTag into this keychain; its open design means that Apple logo will be fully visible. Put your keys on the ring for the perfect blend of form and function.
You picked up a bunch of AirTags from Apple. Why not pick up five keychains for one super low price? You get one of each color, as shown, perfect for color-coding for different family members or for different items you're tracking.
This inexpensive silicone case on a carabiner ring lets you attach your AirTag to just about anything. Just slip the AirTag inside; the Apple logo will still be visible. Choose from a handful of different two-pack color combinations.
If you tend to misplace your wallet, you might consider purchasing a good AirTag wallet. The Snapback Slim Air has a designated sleeve for the AirTag and holds up to six cards plus cash. Never lose your wallet again.
Who said your AirTag case has to be a basic solid? Change up the look with a colorful floral design. You get three different floral patterns in the package, and a carabiner clip attaches the AirTag to the items of your choice.
Lock it down
If you want sturdy protection and secure attachment for your AirTag, Caseology's Vault carrier might just fit the bill for you. This durable case fits on your key ring or bag strap, with a carabiner used to attach it to whatever it is you're looking to keep track of with an AirTag.
Change the look
You can always count on dbrand to skin all Apple's products, and the AirTag is no exception. The kit includes an AirTag holder, lanyard, keyring attachment, and skins for the front and back. Choose from a wide variety of colorful skins.
The longer strap means you can attach this simple little number to many different things: keychain, purse, bag, suitcase, backpack, stroller, and more. Just snap your AirTag inside, and you're good to go. Choose from four colors.
While Apple doesn't recommend using AirTags to track pets, this is an option to consider if you're inclined to do it anyway. Slip the AirTag into this case and slide the case onto your pet's collar, so nothing is hanging down that could annoy your pet or end up in its mouth. The no-dangle style is also good for a kid's backpack strap.
If you tend to lose your glasses or sunglasses, there isn't an obvious way to attach a tracker. Enter Nomad's Glasses Strap for AirTag. Attach the strap to your glasses and pop that AirTag inside.
Another Apple option
Apple's least-expensive offering is a polyurethane loop that can attach to any number of items. Choose from four different colors. You can also choose a leather version for a little bit more.
A cute, sparkly heart adorns one side of this silicone AirTag case. The other side has the Kate Spade New York name embossed around the edge, while the center is open so you can see your Apple logo. Available in black and pink.
Basic key ring
Snap your AirTag inside and attach your keys to the ring. The ring is truly designed for keys, but you might be able to slide it onto another very thin item. Choose from four colors.
Slip your AirTag into this "hidden" compartment and attach the adhesive back to just about anything. The proprietary adhesive sticks to both fabric and hard surfaces.
If you're looking for something sturdy that won't fall apart on you, check out Spigen's Rugged Armor. This is a great way to protect your AirTag on your hiking gear or luggage, items that might get banged around from time to time.
Unfortunately, AirTags get scratched up quite easily. Many of the cases leave the AirTag exposed, and many of us are putting AirTags on keychains or other places where they can get scratched. Keep scratches away with this simple TPU film. Get five for one low price and share with your friends.
If you don't necessarily want to advertise that you have an AirTag on your keychain, consider the upscale leather keychain from Nomad. Your AirTag is securely hidden inside the vegetable-tanned Horween leather fob. Choose from two colors.

Before purchasing an AirTag accessory, you'll want to think about where you'll want to attach it. We recommend CYRILL's AirTag Case with Key Ring if you plan to use it as your keychain. It's not bulky, and it does a good job of protecting your AirTag. You can choose the totally plain, clear TPU look or add some sparkle and color if that's your thing.
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.
Don't forget you can track loads of stuff with Airtags - here are the best AirTag wallets.
