GEORGE W. PRENTIGE, OF PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 283,813, dated August 28, 1883.
Application filed July 5, 1883.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, Gno. W. Pnnnrrcn, a citizen of the United States, residing at Providence, in the county of Providence and State ofRhode Island, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Button-Fastenings;
tached from the fabric, garment, or shoe at pleasure and without the use of a setting or other implement.
My invention consists, essentially, of a fastener formed or made from a length of suitableshaped wire, the ends of which are bent to form a retaining base or table, and also adapted to form a central retaining-loop at right angles With said table, all as will be more fully hereinafter set forth.
In the accompanying sheet of drawings, illustrating my invention and drawn enlarged, Figure 1 represents atop view of my improved fastener complete. Fig. 2 represents a modification of the same. Fig. 8 represents the fastener attached to button and fabric as in use.
The following is a more detailed description of my invention and the manner of applying and using the same.
A, Fig. 1, is the fastener complete, formed from a single piece of wire, which is bent so as to form the central loop, a, adapted to re eeive the button-shank b. Said loop terminates upon its lower side in the retainingsur- (No model.)
faces a a, located upon each side thereof and at right angles therewith, the extreme ends a of the wire being bent slightly upward and 5 located diagonally opposite each other, as fully shown in Fig. 1. I may, however, for certain uses leave the said ends a flat or straight.
Fig. 2 represents a modification of the retaining-base, wherein the ends a are shown in line with each other. This form, however, except for special purposes, is not so well adapted for general utility. v
The manner of using my improved buttonfastening is as follows: The fabric f has a slot or opening, f, made therein, through which the shank b of the button B is inserted, after which one end, a, of the fastener is passed through said shank and partially turned or twisted until the shank b enters the loop a when now the button is drawn upward until the base or table of the fastener bears against the under surface of the fabric, the ends a (when bent) at the same time slightly embedding themselves therein, as fully shown in Fig. 3.
Having thus described my invention, what a I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
The button-fastening A herein described, formed from a single piece of wire, and consisting of the central loop, a, and retaining base or table a c, the latter arranged in a plane at right angles with said loop and ter minating in ends a, which are curved slightly upward, the whole constructed, arranged, and adapted for use substantially as shown and set forth.
In testimony whereof I have affixed my sig nature in presence of two witnesses.
GEORGE W. PRENTIGE.
