I agree with the first review, but a slight retrofit makes it "perfect" again.

After buying this, I was very happy and I still am. However, I did notice the problem mentioned above, but thought that all that was needed was a retrofit to the "breakaway". I just relocated it from behind the neck to closer to the badge holder. This allows you to use the adjustable clip without it interfering with the breakaway safety. So I simply removed the break away points from the lanyard (just twist them off-they are just glued ) and moved the breakpoint closer to the badge as shown in the picture. The item is great other than for this; once you do this retrofit, it is perfect. Truth be told having a string around your neck is always a safety concern. Even with a breakaway on a lanyard, if it is caught from the back and pulled, one could still possibly choke. Moving the lanyard to this configuration, should cause it to "break" even with the adjustable clip. I hope this helps.

Design flaw and safety hazard

This otherwise nice lanyard has what I consider a fatal design flaw and safety hazard. It has both a breakaway and a cinch, but the breakaway is on the wrong side of the cinch so if you cinch the lanyard to make it tighter the breakaway is rendered useless. The breakaway should be between the cinch and the badge, not behind the cinch.

SECURIT Retractable Carabiner Key Holder

5/5

Really nice. For me personally, the belt strap is a bit too big. I wish it would fit snug for an 1 1/4 belt, which is rather big.

Awesome Product

The key-bak that I purchased is super heavy duty, I normally have 15-20 keys on it and performs as described on the site. I will continue to shop with Key-bank again.

solid product

came as expected, well made, exactly what I needed.

Used for ID Holder

Used this for my work entry ID key card, perfect length for it. The action is smooth and the lock in place keeps it at the perfect length so it doesn't get tangled up or caught on chairs.
