Along with material choices there are many lanyard hardware attachment options. And as with material selection, the application typically dictates the choice of hardware as well.<
J-Hooks are by far the most useful and commonly used lanyard hardware. They quickly and easily attach to a card holder or split ring.
Bulldog clips are designed for attaching badge holders with a slot at the top.
Split rings are typically used for keychain lanyards and when other small objects other than an id card are being attached.
Quick-release buckles are used when it's necessary to remove the attached object from the lanyard without having to take the lanyard off from around ones neck.
Safety concerns in the workplace and at play have given rise to the safety lanyard. These lanyards include a breakaway connector that comes apart when enough force is applied. Many different styles of breakaways are available for cord and flat lanyards.
Cord lanyards are typically outfitted with a slide size adjuster installed at the top of the lanyard behind the neck. Moving the material up through the size adjustor shortens the length of lanyard material hanging down in front.
Cell phone holder hardware enables you to conveniently attach and carry a phone around your neck. The phone can be used while on the lanyard or detached by using the side squeeze buckle.
Water bottle holders attach to the neck of a plastic water bottle for quick and convenient access to a refreshing drink while engaged in outdoor activities such as walking, biking, hiking etc.
Lanyards utilizing the above mentioned hardware can be viewed and purchased in the Lanyard Styles section.
