I actually use this to attach my CTA card and attach it to my purse. Easy to pull out and I don't lost my CTA card. Of course you need to be careful because of the string but it doesn't cost to much so I would buy more. Only had to replace once but it was because it got caught with my keys.
After two badge holders broke within a week, I went looking for something that would hold up better at the office. I love this badge card holder for a couple of reasons. First, it attaches with a pin. I find this works better than the belt clip, alligator clip or carabiner styles, since women's clothing does not always include pockets and/or belt loops. With the pin, I can attach the badge holder anywhere, and it doesn't fall off if I bump up against my desk or a conference table. Second, it has a metal wire cord instead of a nylon cord. I almost lost my access badge on the street when the nylon cord on my last badge holder snapped. After using this badge holder daily for several weeks, I'm very pleased and would highly recommend it.
