Merit Medals could have taken the easy path and made a simple lapel pin with a traditional pin & clutch clasp. But we didn’t.
We purchased and analyzed lots and lots of pins hoping to find a better idea. All of them stuck to the same solution with an attached nail. All of them.
We demanded of ourselves something much, much better: a keepsake medal that’s perfect for pinning – and hanging.
Through experiments and iterations, we locked into a simple and effective design that meets our goals of being functional and ornamental too.
FlexClasp™ uses a removable nail that lets you either pin the medal into a garment or use the hole to hang and display. At the top of the medal, we’ve crafted a small hole for other uses including as a necklace or keychain.
We'd love to see how you share the flair...
