(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.
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 composite 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"....

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.
do the competitive brands, used by most tuxedo rental firms, hold up to just one day's
wear and tear??
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 "No-Slip Suspender Clip". Thus was born the
Herman family owned Hold-Up
Suspender Company in 1996. All our products are Trademarked, and/or Patented, and we are proud to be
a "Made in the USA" listed company for those Patriots wishing to

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 "finger clip" suspender clips modified fro use in our heavy duty JUMBO clip
2x4 line line of work suspenders. 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
has introduced a designer blue
jean line called Sloops, which are specifically designed for suspender wearers.
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

For years, suspender wearers had to contend with clip-on
suspenders that kept slipping off their pants. Many wearers attempted to bend the metal clips to improve the gripping power,
but this quick fix seldom worked. Driven by the frustration of inefficient clips that
constantly let go, Sal Herman revolutionized suspenders with the introduction of his
patented no-slip suspender clip. The clip
features a single, needle sharp pin in the center of the clasp, which pierces and locks
into the pant waistband, without cutting, fraying or damaging the fabric. This simple
solution launched a rebirth in demand for this alternative to the binding, uncomfortable,
and often inability to holdup men's pant using belts. The Holdup Suspender story adds
something new to the 200 year old history of men wearing suspenders.
Over the decades,suspenders maintained a hold in the full
spectrum of the clothing accessory world. First, they provided the comfort of wearing
looser pants, so as not to contend with wearing a tight, restrictive belt (which did not
necessarily hold up their pants anyway). Secondly, they added elegance to business and formal attire. Most attempts to bring them into
the mainstream have failed, because traditional suspender clips did not have the gripping
power to keep them in place and prevent them from slipping off the pants.
In 1996, Herman and his wife Judee began the Hold-Up Suspender
Company. Using the patented no-slip clip, they designed and marketed a variety of
suspenders which included styles and fabrics for work, sports, casual, dress and formal
wear. In 2002, they introduced an improved new slant-faced no-slip clip. This clip
minimizes the flip-open problem that occasionally occurs when sliding against the back of
The Double-Up style suspender, also
introduced in 2002, has the traditional aesthetic look of button-on braces, with the ease
of their clips to instantly attach them to your pants. They are so unique that they were also granted a USA registered trademark. The Sloops line of blue jeans was
added to the Holdup product lines in 2004. Sloops are a belt loop-less 5 pocket blue jean,
designed to compliment and fit the physique of the typical suspender wearer ~ no hips, no
This traditional style
mirrors the look of "button on" suspenders worn since they were first invented.
Sal Herman, the President of Holdup Suspender, worked for years to perfect these stunning
braces very popular with TV anchormen, Larry King type talk show hosts -actors -doctors
-businessmen -students and professors. By eliminating the custom tailoring requirement to
sew suspender buttons on to every pair of pants you wish to wear with suspenders ...now
