The Key-Bak founder was concerned with employee safety. He noticed that while in industrial jobs, many workers got injured or killed because their keychains snagged on various machines such as trains. Even in other industries, having too-long necklaces and reels can prove to be a work hazard.
The keychain that resulted, which was retractable, evolved into other products. Key-Bak also makes badge holders, that also focus on protecting the wearer. The retractable badge reels are made to only use as much length as needed. Employees and visitors using the badges will not have to worry about snags.
Even if you aren’t managing trains and subways, the benefit of a retractable keychain or badge reel means that you always know where your keys are, without needing pockets. A good portion of women’s clothing is made without pockets. That trend is not going to change any time soon.
But hey! Why can’t you keep your keys in your pocket? Also, keys look bulky through them. Pockets can also tear or develop holes, especially in thinner shirts. Then you lose your keys, and you’re not sure where they fell.
A keychain is more aesthetically pleasing and convenient. Badge reels look professional if you are in a formal atmosphere, and can also hold work IDs.
Preventing snags also means that you avoid the inconvenience of having to release yourself from any object that has grabbed ahold. It’s not fun when you realize you’re attached to a building, especially when you’re in a hurry. You would rather prevent such a situation, especially when hurrying to and from work.
