    I have great insurance..I've thought about asking, but before I had that implant surgery I'm sure my wife would prefer me to have the "other" implant surgery!

    "In 1962 I rode a 250 Yamaha from San Diego to San Francisco and to St. Louis over old 40."

    Of course that won't be a comfortable ride...you've exceeded the life expectancy (miles) of a Yamaha 250 by over 3 times...

    My wife who has been doing elder-care for a skinny old man says: After his hands couldn't lock the suspenders anymore we got him pants with elastic waist bands which ended all issues. This can be found in all pant styles~

    I passed over this thread several times because I thought it said "suspended", not suspenders.

    I have lost 35 pounds in the last 6 months so I need suspenders.

    I tried the Duluth suspenders after reading all the online hype.
    They lasted about 2 weeks before the clips cut through the straps.
    I would not call these heavy duty at all. I was quite disappointed with what many people claim to be great.

    Yep, staples. You beat me to it.

    Oh, and use 316 surgical stainless staples.

    Did you try the ones with side clips?

    Yes. those were the ones.
    The metal clip saws right through the elastic strap.
    The metal teeth chewed up my carharts pretty bad as well, but I didnt really care about that. I just wanted them to work.

    I have worn suspenders for years and tried the clip on along with the button ones. The best suspenders of all are the leather ones off of Ebay that have a snap that you hook into two belt loops in the front and the center belt loop in the back. Price around $30-$40.00.
