WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Last for a long time!
SIDEKICK Retractable I.D. Badge Reel & Key Holder
Perfect for my ID badge, security door card, and desk key--all in one place and accessible. Easy to clip to neck lanyard or where needed.
I bought the Sidekick because so many of my retractable badge holders broke after a few days. This one is definitely built to last. The only drawback is that the clear plastic attachment for the badge itself broke off and there is no way to replace it because it is on a grommet that does not come off. The retractable part is still going strong but its useless to me without the attachment.
Don’t have to worry about loosing my card key anymore. Just wish they included a plastic card holder.
