Does your conference badge dangle in your lap when you sit? Do does your badge hang so low that people must stare at your navel (or worse, lower) to read your name?
This gadget slips over your lanyard ribbons and winds up excess length, allowing you to shorten the lanyard, but still easily take your lanyard off over your head (the device will unwind with a gentle pull).
Safer than tying a knot, and more socially acceptable than slapping crotch-gazers!
How to assemble:
Place both the ribbons of your lanyard through the slot in the the spindle.
Slide the outer shell over the spindle and lanyard, passing the lanyard ribbons through the slots in the shell.
Fit the cap over the end of the spindle, and turn it 1/4 turn to lock.
Wind the knob to take up excess lanyard length.
New design requires no support. The spindle knob is now a knurled cylinder that is self-supporting.
The STL files are for a small version and a large version. You only need three parts (all small, or all large). You can generate other sizes by editing the SCAD file.
The larger version is for those lanyards that have very thick ribbons, or those who need to take up a lot of slack.
