Lanyards for Keys

A common enough phrase, I’m sure you’ll agree!

Lanyards for keys are a common enough request now, as well as holders for bottled water, mobile phones and USB flash drives. The lanyard is exactly the same in terms of fabric, as these are always strong enough to carry a slightly heavier item.

However, for these particular requirements, especially keys, we sometimes attach a heavier duty clip – you can see the range available here. If it is likely that keys or heavier items are going to be attached, then we would usually recommend either the carabiner or lobster claw clip.

Safety Recommendations

There can be safety issues when it comes to lanyards for keys, mainly in terms of the wearer getting the keys or lanyards caught on something that can potentially cause injury. In these instances, we would recommend a safety break at the back of the neck, which whilst being strong enough to hold a bunch of keys, will enable the lanyard to pull apart if caught in a door or suchlike, thereby preventing any serious harm.

We are more than happy to discuss your requirements and make the necessary recommendations

Standard Clips

If your preference is for a different style or type of clip, then we offer the options below at no extra cost.

  • Japan Hook
  • Split Ring
  • Swivel J Hook (Dog Clip)
  • Plastic or Metal Crocodile Clip
  • Plastic Trigger Clip
  • Plastic Hook
  • Oval Hook (Lobster Claw)
  • Mobile Phone String or Detachable Release

You can combine any of the clips on one lanyard if you wish to do so, but there will be an additional cost for this.

Accessories to enhance your lanyard

As well as the extensive range available in the Designer Lanyard section you can add a number of accessories to your lanyard.

Metal Crimp or Ferrule

Sits just above the clip for that extra stylish look!


Sports events and festival goers favourite!

Lip Balm

Makes a great promotional gift alongside the lanyard.


A more solid attachment for a variety of uses.

Quick Release or Short Release Clip

Enables you to release the clip at the bottom of the lanyard - especially useful for keys, door passes and the like. Aesthetically enhances the appearance of the lanyard as well, for a small extra cost.

Available in plastic, metal or a combination of the two.

Water Bottle Holder

Again, great for a variety of events.

Lanyard Length Adjuster

Enables the lanyard to be shortened if required.
