What Attachments Can I Have On My Lanyards?

What Lanyard Accessories Are Available?

Lanyards are a versatile accessory. Did you know that there is a huge range of lanyard attachments designed to hold whatever you want to clip on the end of your lanyard? They’re no longer just for badges and passes; there’s now even a mobile phone lanyard clip.

Although there is a vast range of clip on lanyard attachments, the metal trigger clips and plastic dog clips are the most popular. We keep a stock of these lanyard clips for next-day UK delivery.

Here’s a whistle-stop tour through the world of the lanyard clips we keep in stock. These can be personalised if required:

The Lanyard Dog Clip

Dog clip lanyard attachments (also known as swivel clips) are one of the most popular because they are strong and easy to use. A metal dog clip on your lanyard could easily hold a bunch of keys: however, they might prove too heavy for breakaway lanyards. This lanyard clip can be plastic, which is perfect for card holders, which would be light enough for a breakaway neck lanyard.

The Trigger Lanyard Clip

The metal trigger clip is often selected in combination with a premium quality lanyard for its reliability and durability. The lanyard trigger clip is like a dog lead clip.

The Lobster Lanyard Clip

The lobster clip looks like a lobster claw and is an excellent alternative to the trigger lanyard clip: however, it does not have a trigger. The triggerless lobster clip is preferable in environments where a trigger lanyard clip might get caught on fabrics or fragile objects and materials.

Badge Reels on Lanyards

Badge reels add extra reach to lanyards, so you don’t have to take off your lanyard to swipe access control ID cards or use keys. Badge reels are available in metal or plastic and are available to buy in bulk or individually.

Crocodile Lanyard Clips

The crocodile clip looks like a snapping crocodile. Plastic crocodile clips are often used by those who need to earth electrical currents in their daily work. Adding a plastic or metal crocodile clip to a lanyard enables you to attach name badges and card passes quickly and neatly.

Heavy-Duty Lanyard Clips

Heavy-duty lanyard clips are strong and will withstand a great deal of wear and tear without failing. Like the dog lanyard clips, heavy-duty clips often aren’t compatible with breakaway lanyards because breakaway lanyards have the built-in safety feature that they are designed to snap if they become caught on something.


Heavy Duty Clip

Split Ring Lanyard Attachment

The split ring lanyard clip looks like a key ring. They are ideal for attaching keys to lanyards.

The G Lanyard Clip

The G lanyard clip is like the trigger clip and is also used on dog leads. The G clip looks like the letter G when you pull the lever down to attach an object to your lanyard. Some people prefer to use G clips instead of trigger clips.
