Physically Securing an Apple TV

There are a few different options that we've thought of for helping prevent the theft of an Apple TV from a student-accessible area. There are pros and cons to each, and there are other options that you can come up with as well.

Label it with a paint pen, and perhaps a magnetic strip.

Velcro it up out of reach.

Put it on top of the projector.

Screw it down using galvanized strapping (from the plumbing department, I could probably give you some).

Put it in a cupboard or display case that has a transparent or translucent door.

Cut a custom CNC wood case that can be bolted down.

Unfortunately the Apple TV is small and portable enough that students may be tempted to walk away with it. Hopefully something like one of these ideas can help prevent that.
