ElevationLab Debuts AirTag Holder for Pet Collars

ElevationLab today announced the upcoming launch of the TagVault: Pet, an AirTag holder that is designed to attach to pet harnesses and collars.

tagvaultpet
The design is similar to ElevationLab's TagVault, offering a full enclosure for the ‌AirTag‌ that's both protective and waterproof. The ‌AirTag‌ holder screws on with four screws and then attaches to a collar with a mounting plate.

The TagVault: Pet does not need to attach to a ring on a collar and it does not dangle, making it a more secure solution than other pet-related ‌AirTag‌ holders.

According to ElevationLab, the TagVault:Pet is designed to work with any width collar or harness, and collar thicknesses up to 5mm. This encompasses 99 percent of collars, though some doubled leather or studded collars may be too thick.

Given the size of the TagVault: Pet, it is best to use it with dogs and cats that are over 10 pounds. It works with smaller animals, but the TagVault will be rather large. ElevationLab says that this design is comfortable for pets, and that signal and sound pass through the casing.

The TagVault: Pet can be preordered from the ElevationLab website for $19.95 and it will ship out in July.

Sadly this is too big for pet hamsters and pet snakes.... both of which are great at escaping into the walls of your house then turning up years later with additional mass.
Easy solution, make sure you have both a hamster and a snake and then just tag the hamster.

When companies make accessories for pets when Apple didn't design AirTags for pets ('https://www.macrumors.com/2021/04/22/airtags-for-items-not-pets-children/')
Apple didn't design the 6th generation iPod nano to be a psuedo Apple Watch but that didn't stop folks from slapping it on their wrist anyway.

It's far from an ideal pet tracker. You have to be near the pet, or someone does. And it's not overly accurate.

Friend has a GPS collar for his dog. He can see the location real-time on his app. He can buzz the dog, turn on a light to make it easier to find in the dark, and much more. He can also set a geo-fence, like his own yard, do he gets a notification any time the dog goes outside that area. Seems well worth the $10/mon he pays for it, especially when we go up north there there wouldn't be another person with an iPhone for miles, so an AirTag would be worthless.

I would NOT trust this to find my dogs. Airtags need to ping an iPhone in order for them to get the location. If your dog is lets say running around the neighborhood where phones will be inside the signal may not be strong enough for the airtag to connect or if its during the day people wont be home. Get something like the Fi collar that uses LTE, Wifi and GPS. When the dogs are at home the collars are connected to the base station or if they go in the back yard it will connect to the wifi, when they break both of those connections the GPS will kick on to see where the dog is at and if its outside of the Geofence then you get alerts as well as a crumb trail of where your dog went and where its at right now.
