Face Mask Keeper - Our original patent pending design!

( Note: Now shipping with an improved stronger version 2 of the connector. )

What do you do with your mask when you are eating or riding in the car? How do you keep your mask clean and ready to use? Introducing the Face Mask Keeper.

* Adjustable strap keeps the mask ear loops off your ear for better comfort
* Unlike other repurposed lanyards, our unique design does *not* have a metal clip sitting close to your face. Metal clips can scratch or pinch. Instead, the mask strap just slides into our connector.
* Standard strap is 24" long - you can request a a 12" or 18" version for kids. I'm wearing the 24" version in the photos.
* Spring loaded retention ball is easy to adjust
* Keep mask handy for when it is not in use while eating or riding in the car.
* Break away feature on strap for safety. The connector will snap off when pulled hard. Easy to re-attach.
* ID/comfort disc helps to identify your mask. The disc also makes the strap more comfortable on the back of the head.
* Optional personalization available - add up to 10 characters on the disk.
* Works with both cloth and disposable masks
* Designed and hand made in the USA
* Mask not included.

Not suitable for kids under 3. There are small parts. Kids should always be supervised by an adult while using this lanyard. Do not wear while sleeping.

I can laser engrave up to two words (up to 10 characters each) on the ID/comfort disc. Order the "name on disc" option then enter up to 2 words in the personalization box.

These lanyards are GREAT! A must-have school supply this year. I chose this shop because of the breakaway option, a safety feature that is important to me. Thanks for a great product.

This has been great for my kiddos in daycare. It has helped their masks fit a bit better on their faces, more comfortably on their ears, and they can keep their masks "on" while eating instead of laying it on the table where it can get dirty or lost. A very nifty idea and came in the mail incredibly fast. I would definitely recommend buying this!

These are so great to help my sons hang on to their favorite masks. I've had other parents stop me at the museum or store to ask where I found them.
