Strap an AirTag to your bike so that you can discreetly track its location with this ingenious mount from Device Therapy. It looks just like a bog-standard reflector at first glance, so would-be thieves will have no idea it’s even there.

Bag yours today from the Cult of Mac Store for just $15.99.

Keep AirTag attached to your bike

Using an AirTag to track your bike is a no-brainer. It means you don’t have to worry about forgetting where you locked it up, and that you can track its location if someone else rides it away. But you don’t want your AirTag to be seen.

If your AirTag is easily visible, any bike thief with even an ounce of sense is going to rip it off and get rid of it before they hit the road. With the AirTag Mount & Reflector from Device Therapy, that’s (probably) never going to happen.

Printed from high-quality, plant-sourced bioplastic, the Device Therapy mount hides your AirTag so no one else knows it’s there. It looks just like any old bike reflector and is secured using a zip tie.

“The Device Therapy Bike Mount & Reflector attaches with a standard zip tie that can’t be easily removed once it’s closed,” wrote Cult of Mac staffer Ed Hardy in his AirTag Mount & Reflector review. “In my testing, I found it a strong connection. The only way to remove the item is to cut the zip tie. But the idea here is that a thief isn’t going to do that because they’ll think it’s a simple reflector. It sure looks like a reflector.”

That’s because the mount employs 3M Diamond-Grade reflective material — the same stuff used to make road signs light up in your headlights. And it’s built to withstand all weather conditions, including torrential rain.

When you need to remove your AirTag to replace its battery, simply cut away the zip tie (one is included with every Mount & Reflector) and replace it with a new one when you’re ready to reattach the mount to your bike.

The Mount & Reflector is available in black or white with either red or white reflective material.
