There are certain adjustments that need to be made when you move to the downtown core of a large metropolis. These include learning how to diffuse that crazy guy who’s picked you as his evening target, knowing what streets and back alleys to avoid when the sun goes down (this is optional depending on why you moved downtown) and getting used to carrying your wallet in your front pocket. Now I’m not saying everyone riding the subway is a pickpocket, but an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of having to get all your IDs and credit cards replaced.
Of course if the front pocket approach doesn’t jive with your ‘style’ then you might want to look into this alarm card. At only 2.7mm thick the No Touch card is designed to be placed inside one of the credit card slots in your wallet. It has a small optical photo sensor that when exposed to light will sound an alarm letting you know if your wallet has been removed and opened. I can already think of a lot of ways to foil the card but I guess if you don’t know it’s inside the wallet beforehand it would probably be quite effective.
While the No Touch alarm card can be purchased in bulk with custom graphics for promotional purposes it’s also available at various online retailers for about $12 each.
