USA Made Suspender Products so unique... they're all Patented
(Southfield, MI notice of US patent approval- 1990) --
Creating a suspender that actually did what it was supposed to do became an obsession with
Sal Herman. Only after he got a patent for a new snap-on suspender clip did he
learn that his design was the first major update to this very common menswear item in more
than a century. Click to see our detailed patent page.

Did you know that thousands, perhaps even millions of men have a tangle of slightly
worn suspenders tucked away somewhere because the clips won't hold? One industry
source says more than three million pairs of suspenders are sold each year. Unfortunately
most of these don't last long. The clips give out quickly and the wearer must bend them
frequently with pliers, or consign them to a junk pile. How often do the
competitive brands, used by most tuxedo rental firms, hold up to just one day's wear and
Even when they are new, users are constantly reattaching their suspenders,
or bending the clips to make them hold better. Enter Sal Herman. a suspender
aficionado (yes, there are many!). Driven by the frustration of inefficient clips that
constantly let go, Herman applied a little American ingenuity to create a solution . . .
the patented "No-Slip Suspender Clip". Thus was born the Hold-Up Suspender
Sal Herman's Suspender Business is
TAKING A HOLD:
Sal Herman’s suspenders company has seen its ups and
downs, but it’s going at a good clip now. Brace
yourself:Did you have any idea that the largest
manufacturer of made-in-the-USA suspenders is in
For that matter, did you have any idea
that anybody cared about suspenders anymore? Well, Sal
Herman does. Herman, founder of the Hold-Up Suspender
Company, knows his product is far more than the
exclusive accessory of truckers, farmers, skiers,
groomsmen, and Larry King. However, even though Herman
predicts the Hold-Up brand should break $2 million in
sales this year and move as many as 100,000 pairs of
Sal offers over 220 styles of Hold-Up
suspenders — featuring his no-slip clips and plastic
Gripper Clasps — including models for teens, girls,
bikers, and pregnant women. His latest brainchild is a
super-soft pair made to be worn underneath one’s
clothing, called Under-Ups. From western wear type
leather suspenders to satin finished dual clip
Double-Ups for office wear and wedding Sal has the
largest collection of styles and colors.
"If there is an unique appeal for Sal’s
Suspender brand — available online at
www.Holdup-Suspenders.com and in more than 2,300
hardware, sporting goods, and other retail stores
nationwide — it may be his patented “no-slip” clip, the
first of five patents Herman has received for improving
the functionality of clip-on suspenders"....

For the consumer, the No-Slip Suspender Clip
means a guarantee of no more slipping, or bending clips, or worse yet, throwing
away a perfectly good pair of suspenders. The patented design is based on one distinct
difference - the addition of a center pin that works like a needle to lock into the
waistband without cutting or tearing the fabric. The result, Herman says, is a clip that
absolutely cannot slip -slide or fly off your pants. The locking
needle sharp center pin is the key. For workers, sportsmen, or the casual wearer who rely
on suspenders, the No-Slip suspender eliminates the annoying problem of clips that
slip constantly from the slightest twist or pressure. The No-Slip also eliminates
the need to "fix" the clips by bending them with pliers. We now have the
original patented "finger clip" in a heavy duty JUMBO clip line. These are for
our NEW -2x4- Outdoorsman and Contactor series suspenders with 2" wide straps and
extra holding power no matter the load.
Herman believes his new suspenders will grab hold of
the public as well as they hold onto a pair of pants. Speaking of pants. Holdup Suspenders
is introducing a TRademarked
blue jean and line of slacks called Sloops .
These are specifically designed pants and jeans for suspender
wearers. Tighter in the butt and no belt loops. The Perfect Equation in Fashion will be Sloops jeans worn with our new
Double-Ups button-on style suspenders. Once you try them on there's no letting go. We are
seeking new applications for our patented clip and you can post your
here and win a FREE pair of Holdups. Anyone interested in the Hold Up Suspender Co.
