Lost KS9 hearing aid

I lost my right hearing aid yesterday while bush whacking on horseback. I was wondering if anybody knows of some sort of retention device? Something like croakies.com for sunglasses.

I am sure I am not the first one to loose an aid. It would have been nice if there was an app that could help find it using bluetooth too.

Thanks

I know of no such lock nor about finding through Bluetooth but Costco offers a one-time free replacement for aids that are less than 2 years old. A few years ago, I lost both of my KS5 aids (put them in my pocket on a windy day instead of just turning them off). Costco replaced them at no charge.

I know the starkey apps have a finder app built in. It is not terribly accurate but I have used it a few times.
I always keep my previous pair of aids in case I lose one of the current ones (or it has a problem).

I don’t know about finding it once it is gone.

Retaining it when it drops from the ear, the otoclip would do that. ITE and BTE options, and colors. Once you figure out what you want, check Amazon, they offer a few of these. But they don’t offer every option, in every color. Link: Hearing Aid Retainers

There are also hearing aid suspenders if you want a headband type of thing. https://earsuspenders.com/

And if you wear glasses, this sort works: https://www.amazon.com/Hearing-Retainer-Eyeglass-Irritation-Standard/dp/B07GRGDHJJ

You’ve already gotten some good suggestions. I dealt with the issue for an elderly aunt with in-the-ear devices by having the audiologist drill tiny holes in the outer casing of each, installed small eye hook screws, threaded some monofilament line between the two, then tied a flaming red piece of yarn to the line. you could also just use some line to link the two. I do like the sleeve that will hold an aid to glasses that someone posted.
