zlLLAH K. YOUNG. Button-Fastenings. n Nolfjjzl. Patented Now-10,1874..k
UNITED STATES PATENT @Prien ZILLAH K. YOUNG, OF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA.
IMPRQVEMEN'T IN BUTTON-FASTENINGS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 156,721, dated November 10, 1874; application tiled July 17, 1874.
To all whom it may concern:
Beit known that I, ZILLAH K. YOUNG, of the city of Philadelphia, in the State of Pennsylvania, have invented an Improved Fastening for Detachably Securing Buttons and Similar Articles of Wearing Apparel, of which the following is a specification:
The object of my invention is to produce a detachable fastening for buttons and similar articles (having either a rigid eye-stem or a tutt-shank) that will not require an eyelet-hole or other opening to be made through the fabric of 4the apparel to which the same is to be attached, and at the same time willbe strong and reliable as a fastening, simple and inexpensive `of construction, and can be attached and detached with ready facility; and my said invention consists simply of an open metallicring, in combination with a swinging metallic pin or tongue, as will be fully described with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure lis a vertical central section of a button having an eye-stem or shank of metal attached to a piece of cloth, and of my said fasteningfor the purpose applied thereto; and Fig. 2, a plan view of my said fastening detached from the fabric.
The open ring A has a slight or shallow groove or depression, a', made directly across near the middle of one half of the ring A, and the pin or tongue B has the end opposite to its point made into a loop or eye', which slips easily and swings freely on the opposite half of said ring, so that when the fastening has been applied, as will be described, the pointed end of said tongue or pin B will rest securely in the indentation or groove a of the ring A, as represented in Fig. 1, while the button will be securely held fast to the fabric of the apparel by the tongue or pin, which has been passed through both the shank of the button and the fabric of the apparel, as represented in said ligure. It will, therefore, be seen that either a tutt-shank button or a button having a rigid eye-stem shank can be applied with facility, and that in either case it will not be necessary to make an eyelethole or other opening through the fabric of the apparel in order to. attach or detach the button, and this is a matter of great importance, especially in ladies7 dresses, in which it is desirable to change the style of buttons, and similar ornamental or useful attachments, in accordance with the changes of taste or fashion, because the apparel will not show any marks or indications of the former location of the said buttons.
The manner of attaching and detaching the button, or other similar useful or ornamental article, whether it be a rigid eye-stem shank or a tuft-shank button, 85e., is as follows, viz: The operator, holding the fastening in one hand, and fabric of the apparel in the other, passes the sharp-pointed end of the tongue or pin B through the said fabric from the side thereof which is opposite to the side to which the button is to be applied and secured, then through the eyestem shank or the tuftshank of said button, (as either the one or the other sort be used,) then back through the fabric of the apparel, when the operator slips the ring around so as to pass the end which has the indentation or groove a under the pointed end of the tongue or pin B, until the said pointed end drops into said groove or indentation, thus securely holding the button firmly to the outer side of the fabric of thetoward the fabric, in order to prevent it from l catching into any garment or fabric it may come in contact with, and for the same purpose the ends of the open ring A should be rounded or sloped off. The middle ofthe tongue or pin B may also be slightly bowed, for the purpose of giving the button-eye a tendency to keep in the middle of the same.
Another point of utility is, that my fastening is a unity, a-nd not liable to be separated into parts, as is the case with all the detacha A detachable button-fastening, consisting ble button-iastenings with which I have any of the single open ring A and swinging tongue knowledge. B, constructed and connected adjustable to I am awa-re that a detachable button-fast gether, as and for the purpose set forth. ening consisting of a double or split ring, in
combination with a movable tongue, has been Y ZILLAH K. YOUNG. made, and therefore I do not desire to claim Witnesses: said combination; but BENJ. MORISON,
I claim as my invention- WM. H. MORISON.
