Now that Apple's AirTag item trackers have officially launched, third-party manufacturers are debuting holders, sticky pads, and other accessories designed to house an AirTag.

Belkin Secure Holder

Available as a Key Ring or a Strap, the $12.95 Belkin Secure Holder is designed to keep an AirTag in place and attached to an item of your choice. It features a twist-and-lock closure with raised edges to keep the AirTag from getting scratched, and it comes in white, pink, black, and blue.

Belkin plans to begin selling the Belkin Secure Holder on April 23, and it will be available from Apple.com.

Moment AirTag Mounts

Moment has a range of AirTag Mounts available that house an AirTag and are able to stick on various items. Moment says that you can stick an AirTag mount in bags, on clothes, or on the bottom of different devices, and with the adhesive stick method, AirTags can be hidden from thieves.

There's a Fabric Mount, a Hard Shell Mount, and a Curved Surface Mount with prices ranging from $14.99 to $19.99. Pre-orders are available starting today, and Moment estimates that the Mounts will ship out in July.

Nomad Leather Keychain and Glasses Strap

Nomad debuted its Leather Keychain well ahead of the launch of the AirTags, but it's now officially available for pre-order. Priced at $30, it comes in either black or brown and houses a single AirTag. It can be attached to bags or other items, plus Nomad is also offering a $30 Glasses Strap with built-in AirTag holder for keeping track of your sunglasses.

Spigen AirTag Cases

Spigen has a couple of AirTag case options available, including the Valentinus and the Rugged Armor, both of which are available for $19. The Valentinus is a traditional keyring-style case that houses the AirTag, while the Rugged Armor has a carabiner and a more durable design.

And a whole new ecosystem begins

I get the complaints of "no hole" but considering this is slightly larger than the CR2032 battery.. there is no room. Unless you create a square block like the Tile... this is a win for Apple. Had they made it square with a non-replaceable battery, there would be a whole new set of complaints.

I am SO pumped for AirTags!!! but doesn’t it have a hole already??
This is actually a clever way of how Apple trigger third party makers to make accessories for their product. Instead of making a hole (like Tile and Samsung SmartTag), buyer will need another accessories to attach it. So there will be more demand for its accessories, and more and more third party maker will join to produce it, making this product seems more valuable, customisable and personal.

Now compare this to Tile and Samsung SmartTag, buyers won't necessarily need another accessories since it already has a hole. So its not very popular for third party maker to make accessories for it.

This is something that make Apple looks 'stupid' for designing the AirTag without a hole, but very brilliant to expand the product's value when it's getting attention with more and more accessories produced for it.

AirTags have no hole unfottunalty. They want you to buy a case for it. A small hole should have been made IMO and would suffice 90% of the user needs. They want to sell the strap which has huge margins vs the tag IMO
Looks like Hermes is going to win the competition here. Hermes is more popular.
Doubtful, hermes is too expensive for a $29 product. we shall see...

I am sure when the airtag pro is launched in 3 years it will have a hole. Give it time I am sure Apple’s marketing plan already has that planned out.

I have a tile on my keychain. The one time I needed it, bumpkiss. I lost my phone yesterday. Found it in one minute. Sadly, I also couldn't find my 12.9" ipad in my 864 sqft house. Geez. Then again, lost my iphone last week (twice) by leaving it in the Arcimoto (you'd think I'd learn). *Always* found with "Find My." If the AirTags are as good as the "Find My" on my phone and non cell ipad, I'm definitely buying some for the keychain and possibly for the Arcimoto (depending on if you can register one to multiple accounts). Seeing as 3 of us share the 3 wheeler, it'd be nice to know where it's at.
