Heavy Duty Badge Reels Great for Military Personnel

How many times a day does military personnel need a specific ID card at hand? The easy answer is innumerable, as we are sure you can attest. The one thing we do know is that it is often enough to make our heavy-duty badge reels the perfect choice for military personnel.

We understand that in the armed forces its a much bigger deal if you lose any keycard, old-fashion metal key, military ID or one of your essential tools, considering all of the security issues faced in overseas bases, especially. If you lose any of those it can:

  • leave your area vulnerable, not to mention;
  • spell receiving a not-fun stern warning from your superior
  • lead to changing out doorknobs, reprogramming locks and re-issuing ID cards

Avoid all that hassle and reprimand. And at our hard-to-beat pricing, theres no reason not to. If you purchase in bulk for your unit, we reduce the cost the more your purchase. Go ahead. See for yourself how low our pricing can get for these durable badge reels and lanyards.

Our steel cable reels are very helpful if you need to carry heavier items or more than just a few military-issued ID cards. The steel cable is stronger than the nylon or polyester cords that come standard with most badge reels. If you need to have a small light or a key within easy reach, this is the badge reel of choice.


This model is the superstar of the heavy-duty line. With a stronger spring and a 16-inch chain, this reel can hold military ID cards, keys, small tools and most things you need to keep track of.
