Lanyards (also known as neck straps) are worn around the neck and used as a method to carry and display personal ID. Lanyards are typically made from two pieces of polyester around 10-25mm wide, and are stitched together at either end to create a wearable 'hoop'.

At one end of the lanyard, a form of ID (usually a name badge, ID card or laminate pass) is held by a clip. For safety reasons, most lanyards also come with an optional breakaway connector at the neck end, allowing the lanyard to come away freely should it get caught.

What is a lanyard used for?

Security lanyards are most often used as a security measure at events, to help accurately identify attendees and occasionally for personal use e.g. as a keychain or camera strap.
