Works great for all those tiny USB flash drives!
on July 9, 2012
Recently bought a series of three really small USB flash drives - the Patriot Flex, Verbatim Tuff N' Tiny, and Super Talent Pico-C. I like tiny USB flash drives because I can attach them to the rubber bands around the 3x5 cards I carry in my shirt pocket (yes, some people still use 3x5 cards instead of PDAs and smartphones!) but I need a thin and strong lanyard to so this. The Verbatim came with a similar such lanyard, but it was too short, and you can't loop the flash drive through this short lanyard. The Super Talent comes with a mini chain. Too thick. The Patriot comes with no lanyard at all.
I had lost a previous small thin USB flash drive that had come with the perfect sized lanyard, and I was looking for a replacement. These are just the right size! You can use the small metal ring to attach the lanyard to the flash drives and then loop the flash drive through the lanyard around the 3 x 5 rubber bands and the whole set up is pretty stable and in a protected environment (instead of being mashed against metal keys, which is what happens if you put these flash drives on a key ring.
So that would be the main use for these tiny lanyards that I can see. If you carry a smartphone or PDA around instead of 3x5 cards, they have holes to attach lanyards to also, and you can attach the USB drives to your smartphone/PDA to keep them safe.
