SOUTHFIELD, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
HoldUp Suspender Company, an online and wholesale supplier of suspenders, announced today the company has been awarded a U.S. patent (Number 8429773) for its Sheet Stay-Down™ fitted sheet fasteners. The announcement was made by company founder and CEO Sal Herman.
The patent received for Sheet Stay-Downs, which alleviates the common problem of fitted sheets coming loose, are for its hook and loop tension adjustment system, the only sheet fastener on the market with this feature. This is the sixth patent awarded to HoldUp Suspender Company since it was founded in 1996.
“What is unique about Sheet Stay-Downs is they can be attached and adjusted by one person without lifting the mattress,” said Herman. “When we developed it, we wanted it to solve the problem of sheets not staying put, as well as making it convenient and easy for customers to attach.”
Sheet Stay-Down sheet straps are made in the USA, and are available in two styles. The “Dual" style consists of two long sheet straps that fit diagonally across the mattress. The “Quad” style consists of four short Stay-Down straps that attach at each corner. Both feature HoldUp Suspender Company’s patented cam-activated composite plastic Gripper Clasps© and elastic straps with a hook and loop tension adjustment system. After attaching the clasps the tension is adjusted to any degree without the worry of the clips slipping off or damaging the sheet.
Both styles sell for $19.95 each plus shipping and handling and are available exclusively at www.suspenders.com/fitted-sheet-straps/, through HoldUp Suspender Company’s newly redesigned E-commerce website.
Herman, an inventor and entrepreneur considered by many as the “Suspender King,” is credited with securing the first U.S. patent issued for an improvement to modern suspenders in more than 100 years. Since then, Herman and HoldUp Suspender Company have patented five different improvements to the quintessential “mancessory.”
