The ID Card Holder, Reinvented

A durable and sleek ID card carry solution with an innovative privacy feature to help you move effortlessly through your day

Melbourne, AU (February 2021) – An ID card holder may seem like an ordinary everyday accessory that’s commonly overlooked – until it breaks. It disrupts the flow of your daily routine, or worse, you lose your important cards. Orbitkey’s latest Kickstarter campaign introduces the Orbitkey ID Card Holder System to help you be better prepared for your day.

Apart from providing instant access to your frequently used cards, this solution can do you one better. The built-in privacy feature allows you to conceal your work ID and ensures it stays that way. The retractor has been specially designed to include this innovative feature so your personal details remain hidden after work.

Orbitkey also aims to address other pain points, related to exisiting lanyards and retractors, that were shared during a focus group conducted by the Design team. Made from high-quality materials, the ID Card Holder System was designed to be more elegant, durable, and silent compared to standard retractors currently available.

Available in two designs - the Orbitkey ID Card Holder and ID Card Holder Pro - with detachable Lanyard add-on options.


Protect your privacy - Safeguard your details while in public with the innovative privacy feature by simply pulling down and flipping the card around. The ID Card Holder Pro also comes with an RFID-protected slot for two credit cards.

Convenient - Holds up to two cards – an access card for work or public transport, and another frequently used card (smart card/business card/ loyalty card). The Pro model has extra storage for smaller items such as keys, emergency cash, or an Orbitkey x Chipolo Tracker.

Highly adaptable - Clip the ID Card Holder or ID Card Holder Pro onto your belt/bag/skirt. Both designs work with an optional detachable lanyard, where the retractor allows you to scan cards without having to awkwardly bend down to reach the scanner. The ID Card Holder Pro also supports cards in both portrait and landscape orientations.

Lightweight yet durable - The form has been designed to be simple and compact so it doesn’t add unnecessary bulk to your outfit. The retractor cord is made of durable Dyneema cord that has been tested to withstand everyday use. Our custom-made retractor is also more durable and silent compared to generic retractors – built to last for years to come. The comfortable woven lanyard also has a breakaway release for added safety and convenience.

Elegant and premium finish - Minimal and sleek design, made using high- quality materials such as premium top grain leather. Complements your style from casual to formal, day to night.

In addition to carrying 1 primary access card, the Orbitkey ID Card Holder (left) has space for 1 additional non-RFID card, while the Pro model (right) can hold 2 additional RFID cards, with extra storage for small items in a hidden cavity.
