ID Badge Reel Options for Government Employees

MINI-BAK Black Retractable Reel

The MINI-BAK Retractable Reel is designed by KEY-BAK, a brand name that is synonymous with strength and durability. The black casing in which the actual reel is enclosed in is made of the most durable plastic that will hold up against any bumps or rough handling throughout the day. The reel can hold up to 2 oz. and is corrosion resistant. The 36” nylon cord allows for an extended reach. So the government ID badge can stay secure onto a person whenever he or she extends the ID to access entryway into a building or department. This reel also comes with a clip to securely grip onto a belt or purse strap

NOTE: All of our badge reels come with a clear vinyl strap that you can attach to an ID card or badge holder with slot holes.

Carabiner No Twist Badge Reel

If the belt clip doesn’t appeal to you, then consider this style of badge reel. The Carabiner No-Twist Badge Reel offers a more polished look with it’s chrome release latch that will easily and securely attach to your belt loop or bag strap without slipping off. The no-twist feature will prevent IDs from flipping over. For creative identification, choose from a selection of colors to better coordinate personnel by department or roles. Like the MINI-BAK, the retractable cord is 36” long. It’s slated for 100,000 pulls and the casing has a diameter of 1 ¼”.

Lock-A-Reel Self Locking PIV Card Reel

In some government positions, it’s often required to insert an ID card into a reader in order to access computers. In a case like this, a retractable reel might become a bit of a nuisance because the cord needs to be extended for a period of time. Keeping it extended too long might cause strain on the reel—unless you have one that locks! The Lock-a-Reel Self Locking badge reel is the ideal badge holder for such situations. The reel is rated for 100,000 pulls and is slightly shorter in length by two inches. Watch this video demonstration on how Specialist ID self-locking badge reel works:

Mini Chrome Silver Key Reel with Spring Clip

With the diameter measuring the size of a quarter, these shiny little chrome cases will highlight any ID badge. This badge reel has a spring clip that allows for more flexibility on what kind of material or strap you want to attach it too, but unlike the other reels, it does not have a plastic strap to hold IDs. Instead, it is designed with a metal swivel hook. This badge reel is rated for 30,000 pulls and has an 18” cord length. There are many options!
