Key-Bak Retractable Key Chains

Key-Bak Retractable Key ChainsSpecialist ID is happy to announce that we now carry the entire line of Key-Bak Retractable Key Chains, Reels and Badge Holders.

Throughout the next days and weeks to come, we will be adding more and more of the best US made Key-Back self retracting reels available.  We will be offering competitive pricing and no minimum orders on all of our top selling Key-Bak products.

The original Key-Bak self retracting reel was made in 1948 by West Coast Chain Manufacturing Co.’s founder, W.R. Lummis.  He was working on the Pacific Electric Railway in L.A. when he saw co-workers injured by having their keys caught by moving trains.  He had an idea to keep the keys retracted safely by the wearers side, and this idea turned into the Key-Bak Retractable Key Reel!

All of our Key-Bak Retractable Reels are proudly made in the USA.  High quality, rugged construction is the major underlying theme behind all of the Key-Bak products.  The products really cater to professionals, in the following fields:  Law enforcement/security, medical, maintenance/construction and welding, sporting and outdoors, hardware, and high volume casinos, hotels/restaurants and companies that value American craftsmanship and quality over inexpensive imports.

As of the time of this article, we currently have three of our Key-Bak Reels online, and we have over 13 products in stock.  We will be constantly expanding this line, so be sure to check back with us frequently:

    I have a very old Key-Bak — my father, Oscar Hult, was making some part of these Key-Baks for Mr. Lummis in his tool and die business in Pasadena, CA in the 40’s. This Key-Bak was in his collection of stuff and I wondered if anyone is interested in having it?
