Airport ID Holders: 4 Ways They Help With Airport Security

The retractable badge reel is one of the most useful ID holders used for airport personnel. It allows you to show your ID while keeping it safely attached to your belt, purse strap, carry-on luggage, or clothing. With the retractable badge holder, you attach your ID onto the clip of the badge reel that's tightly wound into a small compartment that will either have a metal belt clip or clamp. The badge reel can be pulled out at arms length and automatically retract back into the compartment. The mechanism is quite similar to how a Yo-Yo works, except with this kind of badge holder, no skills are required! This is perfect for airport retail sales associates.
