What Do I Need to Know About Badge Reels Before Buying?
Badge reels provide easy access to your id badge using a spring loaded retractable cord to attach to ID cards. The retractable cord is usually around 30 inches long.
A badge retractor makes keeping an ID badge handy for a door reader or whenever there is a need to present an ID badge. ID card reels come in several different configurations of clips and attachments.
Some of these include a carabiner, belt slide clip, swivel back clips, and even a lanyards. Another option is custom imprinting. Your company logo can be printed on the face of all of our selection of blank badge reels.
