Co*k ring

Don't buy cheap retractable things. They break with minimal use.

Eta: that means find a good one. The gimmes from the hospitals are sturdier than discount store ones

They wear something like this But I prefer the retractable kind because I don't like lanyards that make me feel like I'm wearing a necktie.

Go to www.SpecialistID.com. They sell all the badge holder stuff. I have a badge with a chip on it that I also can use in a card reader to log into the computer network. I wear it around my neck n a plastic rigid card holder that has room for two cards to slide in. The lanyard around my neck has a break away clip in back. Much safer if you get it caught or someone grabs you by it. Often the badge is in my shirt pocket so it's not swinging around. No real need for me to have it show 100% of the time.

you're getting bullied at work?

lanyard with a (most likely) waterproof case that has enough room for maybe three cards
I have two IDs, one showing through on either side
used to keep it clipped to the side of my purse (never had to worry about forgetting it that way) but one day at a doctor appt, a lady asked me if I'd dropped something
the container popped open somehow and both of my IDs were laying on the ground
it lives in the purse now and I rarely take it out, guess the blind lady is either harmless enough or they all know me now

Our "badges" are student ID's so mine stays in my wallet, which is kind of a hassle if i'm going in/out. A few of my coworkers do the lanyard thing, but it requires punching a hole in the card. That wasn't a big deal in the past when our cards were mag stripe, but we recently moved our access control system over to proximity ID's, which means you need to be really careful about where you punch a hole in them or you will put a hole thru the prox chip.

When I arrive at my office I make sure I'm me. If I am, I let myself in. As I pass the front office on the way to my office, I imagine the secretary I don't have saying, "Good morning, Pastor KKH".

I can tell you're a man of the cloth. I imagine your secretary some other way.


Badge Holder
Disclaimer
I found my badge holder on the SpecialistID site. My badge itself is very similiar, with the chip. The second slot is occupied with a plastic emergency information card my employer gave me with the badge. It's large enough for anything that is credit card size, but not embossed, so a regular credit card wouldn't fit. Probably a good use for the other slot is if your local transit system uses a smart chip enabled card. Los Angeles County uses a system called TAP for buses/trains. Convenient for employees who take public transit to work.

I have multiple badges with rectangular holes punched in them all held together by a clip on thingy.

The hospital security office should have offered a retractable clip.

It is extremely useful to be able to slide the ID through each dang security door lock if you have to travel any distance through the hospital. I hate wearing a lanyard, they are annoying.

Who Does Not Need Security Badge?

Me. Security Cat would not let me down the stairs to Office if she didn't know me.

Pocket. Every job I've had except 1 I was supposed to wear the badge. It went in my pocket.

Ours have to be visible above the waist at all times. My corporate badge fits in a plastic sleeve that has a metal clip; my other badge for secure areas has a plastic clip. Also have the corporate calender in badge size, we get a new one each year. All hang on a retractable clip holder that hangs on a Bass Pro Shops black & gold lanyard, that allows me to swipe-in without leaning over.

Retractable clip on.
have proximity sensors on our cards.. and have to use it to get in/out of building (those smokers also have to use it to go to the outdoor designated smoking area)

<-- as you can see.. I need a new id.. mine is breaking apart from where the clip is.

My badge is in a Chococat-themed ID sleeve on a lanyard that has pink skull/crossbones all over it.

I stuck/glued the two badges together so it's like one thicker one.

No, not me. If I did post my badge, my cover would be blown.
