A thief could take the hat, but if he tried to put it on, a "guarding prong" would jab into his skull. The prong locked in place and could only be moved if you knew the code to the combination lock.
There's a "Party Hats for Grownups" store and it's got all you need to say "good riddance" to 2017 in cone-shaped, elastic-under-the-chin style.

My friend Gabe created these fun "Fuck Trump" and "Immigrant" hats! All profits go to the American Civil Liberties Union! Gabe says:
On a personal note, making these hats has been a profound and grounding exercise in connecting with others from across the world that I would not have connected with otherwise.

I also know that this is but a small way to make a difference, but I do believe that it's important to express our dissent and let people know where we stand; that we will not be bullied by him or his supporters.

If you are bald, awesome, and need a hat, I heartily recommend the San Francisco Hat Company.
I have several of their lovely fedoras. They are well made, fit well, re-block easily, and have lasted me years.
Don't let others tell you what to wear.

The fedora draws increasing controversy in internet circles. In just one hour I found no less than three Tumblrs related to shaming people who wear the creased, curve-brimmed hat—formal with a touch of classic dandy—and the censure is interestingly specific. The targets are usually men.
