For future reference, can I store my pickled onions this way?

I might throw my current batch out or not but wanted your thoughts either way.

I quick-pickled red onions but just for kicks and so they've been sitting in a bowl of apple cider vinegar on the counter with a fork in it and a towel over it for 2 days/nights.

Just chatting with someone yesterday introduced me to the fear of botulism!

Should I throw this batch out?

Online I see some say store pickled onions in the fridge, some say store in the cupboard/cool, dark place. And I'm not sure if canned homemade pickled [onions] are to be stored differently than quick-pickled onions.

I don't mind throwing these out, I just wanted to see how to make them again. Whatever I do, I won't store it with a metal fork in it next time!
