Breakaway Lanyard ID Holder Badge Reel Combo

Here at Specialist ID, we bring a lot of the worlds best ID badge holders into our warehouse, so we can add more ammo to the arsenal of our online store. But we truly believe that the best ID holders are those that merge basic pieces together in a simple and elegant design to form a powerhouse of a product; which is why we absolutely love the breakaway lanyard ID holder badge reel combo.

The breakaway lanyard ID holder and badge reel combo is leaps and bounds ahead of the traditional lanyards or badge reels we usually see: because these allow you to clearly display your ID at all times, yet also provide users with 34″s of reel cord extension from the badge reel. What does that mean for you? That you or your staff will be able to clearly display your ID card on a lanyard, yet won't have to take it off your head when you need to swipe your card through an e-reader or access terminal, and then afterwards, the lanyard will retract back into itself so you don't have to worry about misplacing your ID card ever again.


Were huge ID badge nerds, well give you that, but for us, there is nothing more beautiful than when two titans of the ID badge accessories industry, the breakaway lanyard, and the badge reel, merge together to form an amazingly brilliant, yet simple product.

When we first saw this breakaway lanyard and badge reel combo, it made us scratch our heads and wonder how in the world this wasn't invented any sooner; because it makes so much sense. The 2138-7001 has quickly become one of the fastest selling products in our store and has gathered much attention from people in hospitals, mental institutions, correctional facilities, large corporations, offices, and any jobs with employees that are required to visibly display their photo ID badge at all times, yet also use those same photo ID cards, or keys, to swipe access terminals and for clocking in.

This isn't just a normal lanyard. It is a gorgeous 5/8″ wide tubular breakaway lanyard, that's spongy and soft, yet sturdy and strong. With 36″ in total circumference, it hangs your photo ID badge right around the center of your torso, just above the belly button area. The spongy soft texture of the lanyard feels smooth along the skin and grips nicely onto clothing for a natural feel. We offer these colors in black, navy blue, red, royal blue, and white.

The breakaway feature provides an invaluable safety precaution that we highly recommend to all of our customers, because if a user were to become choked by the lanyard, it would simply snap apart, but can then easily snap back together afterwards (to read more about breakaway vs non-breakaway lanyards, check out the article we wrote on the subject).

The breakaway badge reel combo provides an extremely useful feature because without the badge reel attachment, a person using a lanyard would be required to either remove their lanyard from their necks or unclip their ID card from their lanyard in order to properly swipe their card through an e-reader. Or they'd have to bend in some crazy position that won't look for professional.

To use this product, simply attach your photo ID badge, badge holder or keys to the vinyl ID strap on the badge reel and it will be ready for use. The usefulness I have described above is what makes this product not only one of a kind but also an extremely functional and useful tool that has become one of the most beloved badge holders after in the industry.
