In 1981, KEY-BAK invented the first Retractable Badge Holder, the MINI-BAK®, and it is still one of the best badge reels on the market today. Built in the USA, the Mini-Bak badge reel has a strong molded black polycarbonate case and a retractable cord made from three-strand braid nylon. Attach your i.d. badge or access cards to the vinyl badge holder and secure the retractable badge holder to your belt, work vest or scrubs. When you need your badge just pull it out when you're done let it go and the built-in tether retracts back into place until you need them again. When you need a reliable badge reel for a badge or two the Mini-Bak Badge Reel is your most durable option.
