In 1981, we invented the first Retractable Badge Holder, the MINI-BAK®. Since then we have developed a variety of styles and configurations designed to secure badges, keys and tools in any application.
The strength of a retractable badge holder is measured by the number of ounces the reel can retract without sagging, this is called the retraction force. If you exceed the amount of weight called out in the retraction force the retractable badge holder will start to extend while in the resting position.
There are 3 different materials KEY-BAK Retractable Badge Holders use for cord materials. Our budget friendly Retract-A-Badge reels use a polyester cord that provides a smooth extension at a great value. KEY-BAK's USA Made MINI-BAK Bak Reels use a strong 3-strand braided nylon cord that is made to last frequent use. Lastly our heavy duty retractable badge holders, the Sidekick and MID6 reels, use a strong Kevlar cord with an 80 lb. minimum breaking strength.
We have 3 different attachment options for retractable badge holders, choose the attachment that works best with the clothing you'll be wearing. The MINI-BAK has two attachment options, a stainless steel belt clip or a swivel clip. The KEY-BAK Sidekick can be worn with either a carabiner or around your neck with the Sidekick Lanyard. The Heavy Duty MID6 Badge Holder has carabiner option or a rotating belt clip.
The MINI-BAK, SIDEKICK and MID6 retractable badge holders are designed, manufactured and assembled in our Ontario, CA factory. Our value Retract-A-Badge line of retractable badge holders are built to KEY-BAK's quality standards by our partners overseas.
