Are you tired of your necktie falling into your food when you lean over a table? Have you ever gotten toothpaste on your tie when brushing your teeth before running out the door? How about constantly adjusting your necktie to keep it in place on a windy day, or in an attempt to hide that unruly tie tail? Ever look down and discover that your tie has wandered away from the center of your shirt? Fix it with the Tiedown, a simple solution for your necktie fashion foibles. The Tiedown will save you from all the stains and inconvenience of everyday life without leaving holes in an expensive necktie (like tie pins do), or flashing a lot of corny/gaudy metal as some tie bars do. The Tiedown is the classy yet invisible solution to your necktie problems. Made from 100% post consumer recycled plastic, the Tiedown will fit any shirt's buttons and strap down your beautiful tie through the horizontal brand label on the back, hiding your tie tail, centering your tie and sharpening your look. It's simple and easy to use, just follow the pictures below. So, how does it work? First tie your necktie, then take a look at where the horizontal label on the back of your tie lies against the front of your shirt. 99.9% of the time the tie tag is between two of the buttons on the front of your shirt. Fasten the Tiedown between those same two buttons, start by putting the top button through the button hole on the Tiedown, then thread the Tiedown through the horizontal tie-tag on the back of your tie. Finish by fastening the bottom button hole of the Tiedown onto the lower button on the front of your shirt. Now your necktie is securely held flush against the front of your shirt. No more drooping into your soup when you stand to greet a colleague across the table, or flapping over your shoulder on a windy day. No more straying from the centerline. Perfect. Simple. Discreet. And best of all CHEAP! Ordering 4 or more? Choose from our ValuePacks and save on shipping! http://bit.ly/4pCADD

***Update. I stand by my four-star review. My first Tiedown tore just the other day, giving the product a two-month lifespan. I think I was a bit rough on it, as it took me a few days to get the feel of taking it off gently. And I was sufficiently pleased with the product that I ordered a three-pack a couple of weeks before my first Tiedown went to the great beyond. The only other thing I'll mention that I haven't seen in reviews so far is this: If the short end of your tie does not reach the tie's loop, Tiedown will not work well. In other words, the tie must go through the loop so that Tiedown can secure it. That could be an issue if you are on the verge of needing a long tie so that the wider end descends to the belt buckle, like it should. I am a tall person and I need a long tie. I have several regular ties, though. When I wear them, it is touch and go whether I can use Tiedown that day.
You can take a jumbo paper clip and bend it into an "S" shape and accomplish the same thing. On this site a 10 boxes of 100 Jumbo Paper Clips will cost you (at the time of this review) $8.28 with free shipping available. That makes a sturdier alternative $0.00823 each. And trust me, you will lose the the paper clip faster than you will wear it out. And who cares if you do, it cost less than 1 cent to make. I can guarantee these cost less to make than that.
If these were priced MUCH LOWER, like a 20-pack for the same $5.50 I would recommend them to anyone who does not have access to paper clips.
I received it quickly shipping cost more than I spent on the tie down.
I thought I would receive more than one, but I didn't.
Would I buy this again??? NO. If I go three at the same price the maybe. You know the markup on one of these at this $3.00 price is a huge mark up for a piece of plastic with holes in each end. Good idea not a good value.
For the cost--I thought--might as well try this gadget--there's no real financial investment, so if it looks or behaves goofy, i'll just toss it in the trash. So, my husband buttons one end of the Tiedown, slides the Tiedown through the necktie's nametag (with the shorter necktie end tucked in also) and buttons the Tiedown at the other end. I would've bet money on the fact that you could see the edges of this 'cheap' tie holder or that the tie just wouldn't lie right.
Well, I was right. The tie crumpled all up and looked goofy--until we moved the Tiedown down one button. Then I had my husband stand up straight, lean forward, lean from side to side......... OMG.... I could not see the Tiedown at all, and the tie was completely well-behaved! We were thrilled with this new gadget! Hubby has worn it for a week--and has not heard one comment from colleagues about the 'unusual' tie holder. Because no one can see it!
I do have one suggestion though--they should be sold in packs of three or five--that way if one gets broken by the kids, chewed up by the dog, or lost by dear hubby, then you'll have extras on hand. So, in the meantime, buy a few when you order! (Now available!! The following value packs!) *** Tiedown Value Pack - 10 Plastic *** ...Read more ›
