Lanyards, retractable badge holders and strap clips fasten to badges worn by employees. Lanyards and retractable badge holders have clear plastic holders that leave badge information visible. A badge holder's retractable cord allows an employee to scan or show the badge and easily return it to its original position. Lanyards, which typically are worn around the neck, are made of fabric. Although they are not retractable, lanyards provide some flexibility when showing or scanning an access badge.
