They sell a silicone lanyard for it. I have a foot of colored electrical tape hanging off it.

I think I would just plug it Zeus Dongle into a OBD extension cable and wrap the cable in red white and blue colored tape to resemble a "Barber's Pole"

Other than a 5 second Firmware flash and Snappy emblem you got to wonder why a Zeus Dongle if lost costs $1800 to replace? Kinda seems like a Military supply contractor charging $2k for a custom armored made in China toilet seat

Default The Verus Dongle is not a good choice for SnapOn

I've Had 4 different generations of the Snap-on Verus and each one has had great improvements over the other. But now honestly What happened to the Zues? it's a joke with that little Dongle.. What is Snap-on trying to copy? Those Cheap Chinese competition Scan tools? Please Snappy you had a great product already. The main problem problem with the Dongle is that it can be easily lost, trust me. We have a Matco Maximus 2.0 and time after time our technicians forget to remove the dongle from the vehicle after performing diagnosis. The shop has already needed to replace it twice and its not Cheap. on the other had our Verus Pro and Verus Edge. We have never lost the VCI unit Ever.. Putting it on the dash or on top of the vehicle where its visible and still have good connectivity range. For that reason we are skipping the Zues. We love the wirless capabilities of our Verus tools but please Snappy Get rid of that Dongle and just return back the original VCI and add a voltage read out with a DLC light. That would be great. thank you.

This one from AES Wave looks much like the actual DLC.

Looks nice, could be useful now and then, but up here it's going to top out at over $305.00.
It's not THAT handy, nor necessary.
It would be nice to have though.

Use mine everytime I do a relative compression test. Makes it so much easier than stringing leads inside the cab.
