Breakaway Lanyards

These lanyards have the breakaway safety feature, meaning that if you pull on it or if it gets stuck on something it will break away and leave you unharmed.

This kind of style of lanyard is convenient if you work in a construction site, airline, or work as a personal trainer, firefighter, military personnel or blue-collar work because these kinds of occupations require you to perform physical labor in the workplace and may put you in close contact with external components that could cause your lanyard to get caught into something.

Non-Breakaway Lanyards

Non-breakaway lanyards are slimmer and much more simplistic. These are ideal if you are a white-collar worker doing administrative and professional work in an office.

This lanyard option has two kinds of end-fittings; swivel hooks, and bulldog clips. Swivel hooks give you more liberty on attachment options, for example, Swivel hooks allow you to attach ID badges and a set of keys while bulldog clips are made to hook on to the slot on your ID card.

Adjustable Length Lanyard

If you are buying lanyards for the members that make up your staff and are unsure whether the length of the lanyard will fit, you can purchase these lanyards which allow you to adjust the length. These lanyards are available for purchase in bulk. Buying in bulk is convenient if you are consistently hiring new employees, this way you can provide a lanyard to each newcomer and immediately make them feel part of the team.
