5 Reasons You Should Invest in a Breakaway Lanyard

While many types of lanyards are on the market, one of our most popular products is the Breakaway Lanyard. Designed to stand the test of time, it is an excellent choice for anyone who needs their credentials with them at all times. So whether you’re a student in the classroom or a factory worker operating heavy machinery, you should not have to worry about the safety of your most essential items. 

Breakaway lanyards are a great investment for individuals looking for safety, customization, and comfort. Here are five reasons why you should invest in a breakaway lanyard! 


1. Breakaway lanyards are comfortable. 

Finding a lanyard that is comfortable to wear around your neck for hours straight can be challenging. Luckily, our Premium Breakaway Lanyards are made with a light and breezy material braided to rest softly on your shoulders. As a result, there’s no need to worry about it irritating your skin on contact. This is a plus for individuals with sensitive skin or especially active positions. 



 2. Breakaway lanyards can be adjustable. 

No matter your desired lanyard length, breakaway lanyards can be adjusted to accommodate everyone. For example, our Adjustable Breakaway Lanyard option can grow from 24 to 44 inches in length with a quick adjustment of the strap and buckle. This allows individuals to access their IDs whenever they need them quickly. This adjustment feature is also great for employees who undergo identification checkpoints. Doctors, nurses, and government officials can make their lanyards longer to scan their ID easily. With our breakaway lanyards, there is no need to take your credentials off of your neck. 







3. Breakaway lanyards are compatible with many end-fittings.

Another reason breakaway lanyards are an excellent investment is that they are compatible with many end-fittings. From swivel hooks to our famous “No-Twist” Plastic Hooks, you can find the best attachment for your needs. 

Many professionals appreciate our Breakaway Lanyard Badge Reel Combo, which gives them the functionality of both of our most popular products in one sleek design. In addition, it makes the ID swiping process convenient while still keeping your ID visible to your colleagues and clients. 









4. Breakaway lanyards securely fasten your belongings. 

The primary purpose of lanyards is to fasten your belongings securely. IDs, credit cards, keys, and other small tools can all be safely stored and hung off breakaway lanyards. You’ll never have to worry about fumbling through your pockets ever again! 

Breakaway lanyards are best known for their safe breakaway feature, which allows the lanyard to snap apart when snagged or pulled too hard. Then, it can snap back together again afterward and even have a badge holder attached to it. 





5. Breakaway lanyards are customizable. 

Don’t forget that you can customize your breakaway lanyard to best suit your personal style. These products come in various colors and materials to keep things fun and fresh at work. Some of our favorite selections are our Neon Flat Breakaway Lanyards, which can brighten up any outfit.
