The brand's retractable keychains have a black polycarbonate case for impact resistance and a retractable cord made from DuPont Kevlar fibre for enhanced durability and ruggedness. These heavy-duty keychains' oversized split ring allows attaching of large number of keys & small tools. They can then be secured / clipped on a user's belt.

Selected models come with a nylon key silencer case that wraps completely around and closes with a hook & loop to secure the keys. Their large flaps keep keys silent to prevent unwanted noise and theft.

Key-bak Competitive Advantages

SUPER48 Ball-Joint Lock

The patented ball-joint lock is the main advantage of a retractable heavy-duty key holder that helps to keep the keys secure when not in use. The ball joint point also lets the user exceed the retraction force (which otherwise is limited to the amount of weight specified on other models) and lock the keys when the user does not require them to prevent sagging.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are auto-locking carabiners in a tool tether?

Auto-locking carabiners are designed to automatically lock when weight is applied to the spring-loaded gate, making them perfect for applications where the risk of accidental release is high. The user needs to push a small lever or twist the gate to release the lock. Such carabiners are ideal for industries like construction, oil & gas and utilities, providing a quick and secure way to handle tools and prevent them from falling.

What is the advantage of spring-loaded cinch?

The spring-loaded cinch provides quick and easy adjustment of the length of the lanyard to fit the needs and then locks in place to offer a secure hold.

How does a retractable ID badge reel work?

A retractable ID badge reel features a retractable cord that allows the user to easily extend the ID badge for scanning or inspection and then retract it back into the casing when not in use. This helps to keep the badge secure and within reach, while also preventing it from getting on the way or becoming tangled.
