The key retractor that got KEY-BAK started in 1948, the Original Series retractable key chain is a heavy duty key reel that is guaranteed to outlast the competition. The Original Series retractable key chain is popular because of its vintage look and the flexibility of customizing the reel to your specifications. Choose either the retractable 24" vintage steel chain or the retractable cord made with DuPont™ Kevlar® fiber. Next, choose between a classic cold-rolled steel chrome plated front or a more inconspicuous black vinyl cover. Lastly, choose how you'd like to secure the key reel to your side, with either a stationary steel belt clip, a steel belt loop, removable rotating belt clip or a leather duty belt loop. Although it is often copied, there has still never been another retractable key reel that matches the quality, durability or versatility of the Original KEY-BAK Retractable Key Chain.

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

these are the longest lasting most dependable key holders on the market
I received the one in vinyl black. It was received in a timely manner. It exceeded expectations as the chain is an actual chain so it looks as though it will be nice and sturdy.
This keychain works great. If you accidentally let the key fall out of the lock it'll whack you in the nuts when it springs back. That's how strong the spring is on this device. I love it I'll buy it again and again.
Got this to pair with a brass Covid key from another American manufacturer so it doesn't sit in my pocket. So far it's working very well. Definitely not only the most unique key retractor I've seen but is also the most well built.
It’s a great product but it arrived already with some tear. I was hoping it would be able to hold a little more Jets but it’s isn’t as strong as I expected.
Flawless operation and very quick delivery. I use this key bak fly fishing to keep my wading staff at the ready. Very helpful when wading fast waters.
Working great no fear of loosing my key and key fobs
This retractable key chain does just what it's supposed to, looks classy, and fits my needs.
These little retracts hold up to wear and tear. I am a maintenance specialist and I am always using extending and retracting key to open doors. Wears well for the value. Thumbs up!
This retractable key chain is very durable and tough. I carry both pepper spray and keys on it during my railroad job, and it has never failed me. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a retractable key chain that will hold up to many years of use.
