WILLIAM II. WARD, on TOPEKA, KANsAs,
PLIERS FOR ATTACHING BUTTONS.
SPECIFICATLON forming part of Letters Patent No. 256,416, dated April 11, 1882, Application filed January 21, 1882. (No model.)
' had to the annexed drawings, forming part of this specification.
This invention relates to pliers for attaching buttons having metal clasps which are adapted, to be inserted through the cloth and bent to hold them in engagement .therewith.
The invention consists of a pair of pliers having a recess in the upper jaw for holding a button by its shank, and a die in the lower jaw for bending the protruding ends of the metal clasp as the said end s are forced through the fabric.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure l is a side elevation of the pliers, showing a button in position for being attached to a garment. Fig.2 is a plan view of the pliers, showing the recess in the upper jaw for holding the shank of the button. Fig. 3 is a plan view of the die in the lower jaw of the pliers, and Fig. 4 is a view of an improved button to which the pliers are adapted.
The pliers A are formed with'curved jaws a a, and have their nipping ends I) I) inclined at an angle from the jaws, so that they shall lie together in thesame plane when the pliers are closed. The end b of the upperjaw is provided with a longitudinal slot or recess, 0,
opening at its extreme end and extending sufficiently within to allow the shank of a button to be passed to the center of the said end. The ends of the pliers are made circular in form, so as to conform to the shape of the button and the branching prongs of the clasp,
and prevent contact with any adjacent object.
The end I) of the lower jaw is provided with a die, 0, which may be made in one piece with the jaw or separately therefrom. This die is of circular form, and has its upper surface provided with a circular recess, d, surrounding the eyelet. It will be seen that the pliers are I adapted to hold the button F by the shank f, so that the prongs of the clasp maybe readily forced through the fabric and bent inward on the under side thereof by the pressure of the die 0, while the grooves 6 will guide the extreme ends of the prongs into the fabric to prevent the cloth from thereon.
It is evident that my improved pliers are adapted for attaching buttons of any special construction belonging to the general class above described.
As the button F will be made the subject of a separate application, it is not claimed in the present application.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is Y 1. A pair of pliers having suitable means for holding a button in the upper jaw and a die in the lowerjaw, having a groove surrounding a raised portion for bending the prongs of a buttoneclasp inward, substantially as shown and describe 2. The combination, with the recessed upper accidentally catching jaw of the pliers A, of the die 0, secured to the lower jaw, having a circular groove or recess, d, surrounding a raised portion, e, and provided withsmall radial grooves e, extending to the bottom of the recess d and up the I outerside thereof, substantially as shown and described.
