We have been using lanyards since forever – at school, at work, at events, or maybe during social gatherings. Maybe we don’t know that we do, because, heck, what is a lanyard? Why does it sound so foreign? To put it simply, a lanyard is a cord, or a strip of cloth, or any material that is string-like, where we can suspend or attach objects to. In our daily lives, we mostly use it around our neck to carry our identification cards – but there are more ways to wear lanyards, and more ways to use them, that we may not have realized or just haven’t thought about particularly.
Here are a few tips:
1. Wear it around your neck
This is pretty obvious and we have already mentioned it. But have we said anything about what to attach to it, particularly for those with clips on the end? We’ve discussed IDs, but mobile phones, coin purses or even keys are good, too. In fact, we can virtually suspend anything or maybe everything on it! A pair of reading glasses, a whistle or a timer for sports coaches, a flashlight for security guards, a compass for hikers, anything you can possibly think of!
2. Wear it on your shoulder
Not a very conventional way to wear lanyards is putting it on your shoulder, like how you wear a sling bag. This is a more convenient way to bring along heavier stuff, such as your hiking or running essentials like water bottles. The same items mentioned above can work with this, too. This is an option for when your neck becomes tired of the weight, or just for when you want to do something different.
3. Wear it on your wrist
Another way to wear lanyards is to wear it on your wrist. Yes, you heard that right! This can be for short term use, because this allows for easier access, such as easily accessing your keys or whistles. The next time your neck feels itchy from using a lanyard, you already know that you can always opt to wear it on your wrist.
4. Wear it on your bag
Yes, wear it on your bag! Who says you should just wear lanyards on your body? Just tie it up on one of your bag straps and maybe attach an ID or a sign, which says “don’t steal this bag or else…” That would be an awesome way to shoo off those nasty bag stealers!
5. Be creative!
We have worn it around our necks, on our shoulders, on our wrists, and on our bags. You can always find ways to spice up your lanyard game. Think outside of the box!
Lanyards have essentially been part of our daily lives, and for good reason. Lanyards are not only practical and useful. They are fun to use, too, if you just let your imagination run free. There are so many different ways to wear and use lanyards, and maybe we should just let the ways count themselves. There are too many for us to list all of them!
