8 Stylish Breakaway Lanyards

8 Stylish Breakaway Lanyards

When it comes to wearing personal identification, lanyards are often the most convenient holders. Like a necklace, they hang around the chest placing an ID badge in plain sight while also keeping it close at hand for the owner. 

At the same time, having an easy way to remove a lanyard is just as critical and sometimes pulling it over the head isn’t the most efficient option. If you’re a person with long hair or an individual who works in an industry that requires things like safety noise cancelers, a helmet or other headgear, removing a lanyard can be a tricky affair.

Not so with breakaway lanyards, however. These sophisticated devices were designed to easily snap apart making the lanyard easy to remove at a moment’s notice. As both a convenience and safety feature, breakaway lanyards are the ideal option for anyone who must keep an ID badge on their person at all times. But where can you find one that isn’t just another blah utilitarian tool? 

Here are a few of our most stylish breakaway lanyards.
