Nylon imprinted lanyards were thicker and shinier than polyester imprinted lanyards, and they have the best and top quality when compared with other materials.

Woven lanyard is a luxury type of lanyard which involves having your designs, slogans, texts or logos directly woven atop the polyester material. It uses threads to weave the simple words on the woven lanyards.

In order to fix the items, the lanyards were attached to a hook or a clip. The metal clip was used for the ID badges; it can keep the ID badges visible and help people to find the service personnel for solving the problem as soon as possible. Metal J-Hook and lobster claw were used for holding some small items, like USB flash drives. Metal king ring was used for holding keys and small plastic items, and it can be an ideal option when you need to carry your keys outside.

Choosing the safety breakaways of lanyards

The biggest difference between breakaway lanyards and non-breakaway ones lies in whether the lanyards have an adjustable cable or not.

There isn’t any protection vehicle on Non-safety breakaway lanyards. While the separate cords on the breakaway lanyards make the two pieces of ropes separated when the outer force applied. It gives this kind of lanyard more edges when used in factories where your lanyards can be easily caught in machines.

The safety breakaway is a small two-piece device made by plastic; it can connect two parts of lanyard together. Safety breakaways have been called the necessity section for any application. Why did we design the breakaways on the lanyard? Maybe you feel puzzled about it. The breakaway can prevent the wearer of the lanyard from being killed or seriously injured when the lanyard puts the pressure onto their neck. The breakaway, as a safety feature added on the lanyard, can protect the security to the person wearing it. Especially for some staff in certain special groups, such as a student in College, hospital staff, workers in Auto Mechanics Workshops and so on.
