Day Undefined Notes:
These retractable keychains (or keychain extenders) attach a badge, keys or other small item to a cord that can extend up to 2 feet (60cm). The keychain itself hooks to a bag, belt loop, or lanyard, for example, thanks to a small carabiner-type clip. To extend the cord, there is no button, you just pull. Watch Lisa's video of it in use (below), or for a product close-up, here is the manufacturer's video. Lisa especially likes that it keeps her from worrying whether her keys might fall on the ground. This product could be especially helpful with cold hands or when wearing bulkier gloves in winter.

Product Review by Lisa: (meet our team)
"I think the biggest pro for the keychain extenders is not having to worry about my key falling. It just retracts back to the body of the extender. I can't really think of a con. It might look in the video like I'm as close to the door as I would be if I didn't have the keychain extender, that's true. But I have no fear of the key falling through the wooden planks of my deck because my keychain is attached to my purse."
Video description: Lisa's keys are attached to a blue retractable keychain that is attached to her bag but extends while she unlocks the door. Then Lisa shows again how she can lock the door with the keychain extender. Lisa, a white woman with brown hair wearing a black sweatshirt and sunglasses, is a wheelchair user. Video has upbeat background music but no speech.
