Carabiner Badge Reels are Sturdy & VersatileBadge reels – also referred to as ID reels, card reels, or badge holder reels – enable you to extend and retract your ID or name badge for easy presentation and scanning, yet keep you free of the neck cords, chains, and straps that can easily get caught or tangled in industrial, active, or sporting environments. 

Badge reels are a great choice if your ID needn’t be highly visible at all times – but you still need quick access for door readers or secure areas and zones.
