YoYo Badge Reels

badge reel can be described as a housing or case that contains a retractable cord. This cord connects to an ID badge holder. Because of this retractable cord it can also be referred to as a yoyo badge reel. A badge reel is often either a square or round shape. We typically sell rounded shaped reels because they are smoother to the touch and look better when worn around the neck on the end of a lanyard. The reel itself typically has a belt clip on the back for attaching the badge reel to clothing. We also offer environmentally friendly sustainable rPET alternatives.

We offer different types of clips for sale that can be used as the clothing attachment on the badge reel. Keyring and strap clips are variations of clips used to hook the retractable badge reel to your clothing. The cord is typically 27-36 inches long and is attached to a spring mechanism within the casing which allows the cord to retract when pulled (like a yoyo).

Badge reels are commonly used by companies, schools, and organisations of all sizes. The user can pull the retractable cord to swipe their ID badge for gaining access to a door via a keyless entry system or by simply clocking in to work. They are also really useful for attaching items such as keys or small tools. Any business would benefit from the use of our retractable badge reels. They also don’t have to be plain, they can also be a cost effective means of branding. The holder would be promoting their company or organisation simply by wearing the badge reels with that logo. If you are interested in adding your logo to our reels please see our custom printed badge reels that even come with FREE UK delivery.

Badge reels are becoming increasingly popular because of their simple yet effective design for use with swipe and keyless entry systems. At the same time, they give companies strong marketing and promotional exposure for a very low cost.
