Default Please explain badge reels?

I'm feeling a little bit dull here, but what exactly is a badge reel, and how is it used? Please stop in for a quick bit and let me know what you know.

badge reels are used to hold name badges, etc usually with the retractable ones I think that you can pull them down to swipe them in a time clock or scan for door access. I have seen a lot of nurses use them. Maybe someone else can explain them better.

that's pretty much it. A lot of companies require them, it's just a place to hold your name badge bc usually if where you work requires them you are also required to have it showing at all times. In my case when I worked I had to use mine to go from door to door bc I had access to restricted areas. Just makes it easier.

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

I decorate a plain badge reel with a fabric covered button. They're quick & easy to make, and are a good seller for me. They're just a good "filler" that helps my products appeal to more than just moms with little girls.

So what you're saying is that they are still used for their badge reeling purpose, but they are decorated so they can be pretty while holding peoples' cards? Maybe I don't get it, b/c I live in the middle of nowhere, and no one around me uses ID cards.

we pretty much bling them (jewels on the bottlecaps) - we sell harleys where I work so all the employees wanted different pics of harleys in different colors with different blings- HTH anita
