Default Re: Please explain badge reels?

yes, they're retractable - think of the little tape measures that roll back up into their little case when you push the button -

same principle

it has a clip so you can hang it from your scrubs or labcoat (well, other industries use them, too) and then your name badge would attach to the reel so you could just pull the badge and it would reach the scanners to gain entry into where ever. Otherwise, you were forever taking off your badge off to either swipe them (like credit cards) or pass it in front of a scanner. Then we don't lose them and have to pay to replace them
