About

Locksafe is a unique technology that preserves and enhances the functionality of a knitted elastic. The technology works by locking the yarns of a knitted elastic together. It thereby prevents the elastic from unraveling when snagged in addition to stopping the spandex from running back. Over 200 million garments with Locksafe elastic are sold worldwide each year. Locksafe is mostly used in intimate wear, and offers a greater garment lifespan. Evidence shows that garment returns due to the fault of unraveled elastic that is designed to give garments a design edge and cost - such as bar tracking and back latching - can be eliminated.
