We investigate the influence of deformation on the possible occurrence of long-lived K isomers in Hf isotopes around N = 116, using configuration-constrained calculations of potential-energy surfaces. Despite having reduced shape elongation, the multiquasiparticle states in Hf-186,Hf-188 remain moderately robust against triaxial distortion, supporting the long expected occurrence of exceptionally long-lived isomers. The calculations are compared with available experimental data.
