West Coast company founder, W.R. Lummis, invented the Original KEY-BAK Self Retracting Key Reel in 1948. As a switchman on the Pacific Electric Railway in Los Angeles, he saw brakemen and switchmen injured when their dangling key chains got caught on moving trains. Lummis had an idea for a reel that would keep keys within reach at the wearer’s side, safe from snagging on moving railcars and machinery. His idea became the first KEY-BAK.
From Key-BAK’s inception, its products have been proudly made in the USA with the highest quality standards. For 65 years KEY-BAK has helped workers around the world secure their keys, I.D. badges and tools with self-retracting reels.
In its corporate office in Southern California, all research, design, manufacturing, quality assurance testing, packaging, shipping and customer service takes place. This ensures that every KEY-BAK product is made with the same precision as the first, keeping standards high and customers satisfied.
