Flex Stays

"The Revolutionary Spiral Stay Alternative"
Patented by Higgins Supply Company, Inc.
New “Tapered” End Design

1. Superior Design & Durability

  • Can be implemented in any application currently using traditional, galvanized steel, spiral stays.
  • Insertion-friendly product with rounded edges and no sharp-edged caps to snag or cut through finished garments.
  • Opaque appearance minimizes showing through garments.
  • Flexible support prevents garment rolling or twisting while allowing garment to conform to wearers' movement on all axis.
  • Resumes its natural position when not flexed with no deformation after extensive usage.
  • Strength and durability have proven to be the same, if not greater than that of the traditional spiral.

2. Cost Savings

  • Flex Stay product is a less expensive option than the spiral stay.
  • Insertion-friendly product with rounded edges and no sharp-edged caps to snag or cut through finished garments.
  • Freight costs will decrease for raw material and finished goods because the Flex Stay is 66% lighter weight than the spiral stay.

3. Improved Consumer Satisfaction

  • Increased consumer comfort due to lighter weight finished product and no sharp-edged caps.
  • Improved safety as product is non-conductive.
  • Increased product longevity due to reduced pocket wear, no stay corrosion and minimized tendency for breakage or "poke-through".
