To be fair, I've only this about a month or so, but so far, it's holding up quite well.
As an ER Trauma nurse, I need a badge buddy that can keep up. The SIDEKICK is able to hold multiple badge buddies and keys without drooping. Completely satisfied, but the housing broke in half 2 months after the warranty expired. 4 stars as I wish it lasted longer.
It does what its intended to but the tether cord is already wearing out and its not like im using it all day and pulling on it all the time. Kind of disappointed in the quality
It's nice to have my badge and work key at hand without having to dig through my pockets. Build quality is top notch too. This isn't some cheap crap you get as a freebie from work.
I received a Key-Bak years ago and the clip broke. I finally remembered the name and ordered more. I use it for my scan cards, so I am use it daily. Still love the durability & design. My one small issue is the spring on the clip, it might break again, but I ordered plenty. Other than that awesome product, I like it very much and recommend it to co-workers!
I am a trainer at a very busy steakhouse. I purchased this about a month or so ago and so far so good! It has starting to make this clicking noise when I pull it out but when I checked the string everything seems fine. Here's the real truth though... You have absolutely no idea how much this is pulled in and out, smashed up against walls, chairs, tables and anything else that gets in its way. I definitely don't expect it to last forever and in fact I'm very surprised it's lasted this long!! Anything I've used in the past explodes within 2 to 3 weeks max. I had high hopes this would be a quality product, one that would stand up to the insane abuse I planned on putting it thru and like I said... So far so good!
Under normal use I see this product lasting a very very long time. This is a quality product and I will be ordering a backup or 2 soon and will be recommending this to all new server's.
You can feel the quality as soon as you remove from packaging. The reel cable, reel tension and the rest are first rate. This is my 3rd Key-Bak purchase. There will be more in the future.
In use for 2 weeks, I really like the cord reel strength and “snap.” The carbiner clip is very secure- important as my access badge and keys are attached. As a 5’ 2” female, I’d love a slightly shorter overall length but it’s not a deal breaker. I’m very satisfied with the quality and that is my main reason for spending more than I usually do for this type of item.
Having little time to use this device, I scarcely feel qualified to remark on the quality. I like it. There were parts attached which did not suit my use, but these were easily removed and I adapted it to my purpose.
He loved it, and I love my old one too!
