Round Breakaway Lanyards: How Useful are They?

If you’re looking for simplicity and safety, then the round breakaway lanyard should be one of the options to consider when it comes to selecting a proper badge identification (ID) holder.

The round lanyard is 1/8” in diameter, so it doesn’t have room for any type of customized lettering. The round lanyard weaving may also fit more comfortably around the neck for people who aren’t especially keen on wearing jewelry.


With Specialist ID, you can get these lanyards in a variety of colors:

· Black

· Green

· Maroon

· Navy Blue

· Orange

· Purple

· Red

· Blue

· White

· Yellow


The Absolute Best Feature About Breakaway Lanyards


Perhaps the best feature for these breakaway lanyards is that they are built with a nickel-plated swivel hook and a safety breakaway feature that allows the lanyard to detach with enough pull force. This is perfect for anyone needing to work with his or her hands or operating machinery. The breakaway feature will work as a fail-safe mechanism for detaching from the operator in case it gets caught or snagged on to something. As a result, this breakaway feature will prevent any choking accidents. The swivel hook latches easily to any Badge Buddy or ID with a manufactured slot hole.
