Ten unique uses for lanyards
Ten unique uses for lanyards, some of which you most likely have never experienced. The uses for lanyards are unending. Although they are often given out as a simple marketing tool, they can be used for so much more. From card holders to vital organisation tools, lanyards are handy accessories that make everyday life a bit easier.
1. Promotional items
The positioning of the lanyard on the chest creates a prime space for company marketing and, because they can be reused in many ways, they are often re-worn for quite some time. Company colours, text, design, logos and contact details can be printed onto the lanyard. Organisations can even add a QR code which is screen-printed onto the lanyard, taking users directly to a website or allowing the user to update contact details to a cellphone.

2. Flashdrive carrier
These handy little electronic devices have a devilish way of getting lost. You can avoid misplacing them by connecting your flashdrive to a lanyard, and have an easy way of carrying your flashdrive around without losing it along the way.
3. Outdoor activities
While enjoying the great outdoors, away from the bustle of the working world, the last thing you need is to misplace your trusty knife or lifesaving compass. Just attach your vital outdoor accessories to a lanyard and keep them readily available.
4. Key organisation
Quite easily the world’s most lost item, the key. But no more! By securing your keys to a lanyard, they are easy to find. Lanyards are also a great way of sorting out keys for different sections of the home or office space.
5. Animal leash
When it’s the correct length, a lanyard can be attached to a pet collar and turned into a comfortable leash when walking your pet. These can be further customised to include contact information of the pet’s owner in case of any unexpected dashes.
6. Security access and card storage
With the plastic card holder, security access for work facilities, cruise-liners and even security villages is made a lot easier with the lanyard – particularly swipe keys. Cruiseliners also tend to use lanyards for their cruise cards which are needed throughout the ship.
7. Whistle holder
Those in the lifesaving and coaching professions are constantly in need of fast access to a whistle and having one attached to a lanyard is the best option. It won’t get lost and is easy to reach in an emergency.
8. Pen holder
Certain lanyards are specially designed for carrying pens, something that is vitally important in many offices, government departments and healthcare facilities. Hospitals constantly require forms to be completed and signed and this process is sped up (vital in any emergency situation) by easy access to a pen around the neck. They also act as a ‘hands-free kit’ allowing doctors and nurses to tend to patients.
9. Big events
Used as access passes, colourfully differentiating between media, VIP, entertainment and paying guests, lanyards are fantastic tools at conventions and entertainment events.
10. Hats and sunglasses
For those windy days, lanyards prove quite useful in securing hat to head while glasses and sunglasses can be kept close at hand by securing them to an attractive beaded lanyard.
