Keep track of your elder, toddler and their favorite stuff in crowded places

Small children and elderly loved ones with memory issues need more care. They are prone to wandering off without warning. Therefore, place the tracker in an AirTag case and attach it to their wrist or belt so you can easily find them if they go missing.

Track your lost tools, instruments and equipments

We recommend placing the AirTag at the bottom of your bag or attaching it to the inside of the case so you can track it down if it goes missing.

Hide an AirTag on your bike or scooter

Hide your AirTag somewhere safe on your bike or scooter so you can easily locate it.

Attach one to your drone

These tech gadgets are expensive and you need to protect your investment. Therefore, attach an airtag to it so you can track it down if it gets lost in the wilds.

Track your runaway dog or cat

If you know your furry child escapes the neighborhood, you must get an AirTag dog collar case. This way you can use you phone as long as there is an iPhone in range.

Attach an AirTag firmly to the remote

If you regularly lose the TV remote control, you could get an AirTag and stick it to the bottom of the Remote. This way you can avoid turning the house upside down looking for it.

Slip one in your jacket pocket

Lose your knack for losing jackets by placing an AirTag inside the pocket so you know where you left it

Place one in your laptop bag

Laptop bags can easily be left behind at a cafe or at the office. Make sure you place the Bluetooth location tracker inside one of the pockets. This will save your expensive laptop, any confidential data and personal belongings you had in it.

In your tent when you go hiking

If you set up camp in an unknown location you never visited, it is super important to place an Air Tag inside your tent. This will save you from getting lost. For example, if you plan to hike several miles a day, you can use Find My to locate the direction to the campsite.

Hide the AirTag in the glove box, center console or another concealed space in your car

Place an AirTag inside your car and you should be able to use your iPhone to locate it. AirTag will locate your car and if you want directions, it will boot you into the Maps app to help you locate it.

Inside your luggage

If you want to locate your checked bag on airlines or want to know exactly when it’s coming around a baggage carousel, then an Airtag can help you locate the lost luggage. Make sure you do not stash your AirTag to the outside of the bag or it will bang up or fall off.

Tech devices

If you have a Kindle, a portable game device, or a GoPro camera, you must slip an AirTag into any device’s case. This way you can find it when you’ve forgotten where you last used it.

Binoculars or Cameras

If you have expensive binoculars and you keep forgetting where you put them, then you must tag them with an AirTag. You can do this for your cameras, tripod and other expensive and essential gear when you go out for adventures.

Musical Instrument cases

Similar to luggage, cars, remotes and other items you carry around, if you’re a musician, then you must stick one of these location trackers in your instrument case. If it goes missing, you’ll be grateful to be able to hunt it down.

Your wallet, purse or backpack

You need to protect your wallet, purse or backpack. These are items that you may want to track, so slip a bare AirTag into any of them. Note, an airtag in your wallet will look thick, so tug it in your purse of backpack to make it secure.
