Just got some ATs for my kids so they can put them on their school bags, luggage, or whatever.
I also bought 2 different styles of AT holders; the bigger loop and key ring.

Just read a thread about someone having their AT stolen off their luggage at an airport
Got me thinking, is everyone displaying their ATs or hiding them so the ATs don't get stolen?

I understand if someone steals an AT they can't use it, but it's just the point of stealing your AT
and breaking it or just being a jerk and throwing your AT away or something.

Our ATs have no been used yet but I'm thinking maybe hiding the the ATs is the way to go??

Any thoughts?

Like everything Apple. I display them. Gotta let people know how into Apple I am. I've got a clear belt holster so everyone can see my iPhone. My key ring clips to a belt loop so people can see my Airtag. Then of course I've got my hat, shoes, shirt, pants and belt buckle. All with Apple logos or Apple written on them. Just think the top left outfit with more Apple stuff including briefcase. People stare at me in public. I know they're just jealous.

In all seriousness. Anything Apple out in the open just screams steal me.

You completely lose the opportunity to use them to track down stolen items if they're visible. First thing the thief will do is remove them.

I'd hide them inside.
