Badge Reel? What's That?

A badge reel is a small and lightweight retractable device that can attach to your clothing and stretches out as far as the length of your arm. The reel is strong enough to hold an ID badge holder, keys and even small tools. Depending on the type of badge reel you order, you can hold up to 15 keys.

The retractable cordage is stored in a lightweight compartment that Specialist ID offers in many different colors, solid, translucent and are even customizable. You have the choice of clipping the badge reel to your clothing with a regular clip, swivel spring clip, a rotating or non-rotating release latch.
