    Question Is it 'Deployment' or 'Deployant'?

    I've seen the clasp referred to as both 'Deployment' or 'Deployant'. Which is it?

    Been discussed before, recently too -

    "Deployant" seems to be the consensus.

    It's "deployant", however if you want to buy one, better look for a "deployment"...

    Ooof, that's a big whoopsie! I can understand where all the confusion comes from because it's been a misused word for years.

    Sounds like another case where a wrong word has been used for so long that it became right. My favourite example: the polymer material most often used for fabrics is "polyestar", not "polyester". Not even spellcheckers got it right.

    You can deploy wearing a deployant strap. Deployant is derived from delpoyante which translates to clasp.
