The Stainless Steel chain is a 27" ball chain. It can be easily shortened to any length below 27" with a pair of wire snips or a sturdy pair of scissors. To avoid choking hazards, the chain is designed to break under 20 lbs. of pressure.
Why is it named the FIXX ID?
Sure, FIXX is short and catchy, but this product has a powerful namesake: Jim Fixx. The, ahem, mature readers in the crowd may recognize that name. He’s a writer and fitness guru who helped make running a popular sport back in the late ’70s and early ’80s. His best-selling book, The Complete Book of Running, encouraged countless people to lace up and hit the road for regular runs.
Tragically, Fixx suffered a fatal heart attack while out for a solo run without identification. He was found by a passing motor cycle rider and later identified by a nearby business owner. We’re inspired by his spirit and legacy, and we think outfitting as many runners as we can with an emergency medical alert dog tag is the least we can do.
Why does the FIXX ID have a notch on it?
For any military buff, it’s a direct nod to the classic dog tag designed by the U.S. military from the ’40s through the beginning of the ’70s - overlapping with both World War II and Vietnam. Originally, these notches had a strictly utilitarian purpose: They held the tags in place while they were embossed with a soldier’s identifying information. We’ve included it in our design as a subtle tribute to all the veterans out there who served with those original tags
The FIXX ID
Back in 1999, the FIXX ID was the first (and only) ID we offered. Our take on the classic military dog tag design, these are still one of the world's most recognizable forms of identification. And thankfully, after a brief hiatus, they’re back and better than ever! The FIXX ID tag now features a sleek, matte finish for improved legibility, 7 lines of text, and a more durable design that just might save your neck one day.
How the FIXX got its name and notch: The All-True Story Behind the FIXX ID Dog Tag
Give a custom ID tag to someone in your life or get one for yourself that you can wear as a necklace, attach to your backpack, or fasten to any other important belongings. When you’re traveling alone or exercising alone, the IDs can help in the event you’re injured or in need of medical attention.
With 7 lines of clear text, you can list contact numbers, food or drug allergies, and other important medical information.
Our ID tags have the classic, cool vibe of military dog tags. These can also easily pass for pet tags for your four-legged friends, but for that specific purpose, we have developed pet ID tags and collars for cats and dogs. Keep your dog’s tags jingle-free with our Dog iD tags.
Note: Image options are emblazoned on the opposite side. Chain length is 27 inches.
