Only Holdups' feature the "No Slip Suspender Clip"
(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.

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 re-attaching 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 . . .

I am having a problem with the first pair of suspenders that I ever
bought from your company. I do not know the exact date of purchase,
but it was way, way back in a previous century. The problem is that
they just won't wear out. Since then I have purchased a replacement
pair "just in case" and several other pairs in various colors and
styles. When I bought my first pair of Hold-up suspenders, I had no
problem throwing out a few pairs of other suspenders since they really
didn't work well to begin with. As a depression baby, however, I
cannot bring myself to get rid of something that still works well and
looks good. I have mistreated that first pair by using them as work
suspenders with heavy heavy tools in my pockets. Still they didn't show
signs of wear. I have to look twice to see which is mySundaypair
and which is my old everyday pair. The other colors and styles I
bought have no chance of wearing out during my lifetime because I use
them only occasionally. Is there any solution to this problem?

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 Southfield
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 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.
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
