What do I Need to Know About Badge Reels Before Buying?

Retractable badge reel on person

Blank Badge Reels

Badge reels help employees keep track of an ID card and provide easy access. Retractable reels use a spring loaded retractable cord to attach to ID cards for ID security. The retractable id holder reel 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 for your retracting ID reel is custom imprinting. Your company logo can be printed on the face of all of our selection of blank badge reels. With the customized badge reel option you can be the retractable reel designer, but we are always here to help. 

Some customers need heavier duty retractable badge holders than others. Some just need something that can handle more than the weight of a badge. Some are simply a little rough on the retractable cord. No matter the case, we can handle it and meet you where your needs are!

If you need an easily attachable, long-lasting reel for a key or badge, the carabiner reel is one our customers love. These heavy duty retractable id card holder reels fit on belt loops easily and comes in several colors and is more than enough for many facilities which have people scanning their badges many times a day.  Perhaps looking for something with more line strength and hold? Checkout the heavy duty reel with nylon cord and heavy duty strap. The nylon won't fray under constant use and the heavy duty retractable badge holder strap keeps whatever it is your holding held for a long, long time.  Straying from a traditional badge reel, we get into some truly heavy duty reels. The Key-Bak Super 48 Heavy Duty Reel can hold small flashlights, many keys, and other tools. Its cord is made of Kevlar and the body is made of metal. Carabiner retractable badge holders borrow technology from mountain climbing equipment. The carabiner clip on the retracting ID reel makes attaching it a breeze.  These retractable holders are no wimps either, they can stand up to quite a bit of abuse in the field.

If you're looking for a retractable badge reel option without the worry of the clip coming undone, a lanyard badge reel has all the options of a round reel with the security of a lanyard.
