Description

Aug. 4, 1964 J. v. sANToRA 3,142,878

STAPLE: BUTTON FASTENER Filed April 1o, 196s FIG. l

United States vPatent O 3,142,878 STAPLE BUTTON FASTENER James V. Santora, 72 Ellwood St., New York 40, NLY. Filed Apr. 10, 1963, Ser. No. 272,138 1 Claim. (Cl. 24-96) This invention relates to a staple button fastener.

It is the principal object of this invention to provide a button which can be applied toclothing without sewing and by means of staple points inserted through the clothing material and bent over by depressing the same against a hard surface.

It is another object of the present invention to provide a staple button fastener formedv of two disc parts, the outer part being of larger diameter than the inner part and between which, upon the partsbeing fastened together, is secured a double pointedrstaple, the head of which is formed to fit a groove in one of the parts in such a manner as to be firmly held against rotation about its horizontal head axis and in which the button will have a spacing from its connection with the garment to accommodate the small diameter part within the buttonhole and under the larger diameter outer part.

It is still another object of the invention to provide a staple button fastener comprising a bottom disc between which a double pointed staple is retained and as well a cover on the outer disc is tucked between the two discs and removable screw means for holding the two discs together and which upon being removed will permit the assembly of a different color outer disc or of a different color cover whereby a staple button fastener can be readily made of different color patterns or covering by the consumer himself.

It is a further object of the invention to provide a staple button fastener of the present type in which the outer ends of the points of the staple part are bent inwardly so that upon the points being pressed against a flat surface the button will be easily engaged with the garment.

Other objects of the invention are to provide a staple button fastener, having the above objects in mind, which is of simple construction, has a minimum number of parts, inexpensive to manufacture, can be assembled by the consumer to different color patterns, of pleasing appearance, easily admitted to the buttonhole, and fully retained therein, eicient and eective in use.

For a better understanding of the invention, reference may be had to the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, in which FIGURE 1 is an exploded perspective view of the button fastener embodying the features of the present invention,

FIG. 2 is a perspective view of the assembled button fastener,

FIG. 3 is a transverse vertical sectional view of the fastener as viewed on line 3 3 of FIG. 2,

FIG. 4 is a buttonhole assembly including the button fastener fixed by its bendable staple parts to the garment,

FIG. 5 is a transverse sectional view of the button as viewed on line 5-5 of FIG. 4 and looking in plan upon the buttonhole opening,

FIG. 6 is a bottom perspective view of the button fastener according to a modified form of the invention wherein the staple is molded into the button shape,

FIG. 7 is a horizontal sectional view taken on line 7-7 of FIG. 8, and

FIG. 8 is a transverse sectional view taken on line 8 8 of FIG. 6.

Referringpnow to the figures, 10 represents a small diameter button spacing disc having a raised peripheral ange 11 widely spaced holes 12 and 13 with an S-shaped 3,142,878 Patented Aug. 4, 1964 ICC` groove 14 provided in the top of the disc and extending between the holes 12 and 13.

A double-pointed staple 15 has two bindable prongs 16 and 17 that are respectively extended through the holes 12 and 13 in the disc 10 and an S-shaped head or transverse portion 18 extending between the prongs 16 and 17 and adapted upon the staple 15 being assembled upon the disc 10 to lie within the S-shaped groove 14 in the top surface thereof. With the staple head being so shaped and the groove 14 made to accommodate the same the staple will be held in the disc 10 by the underface of a large button disc 19 against rotation about the head transverse axis, whereby the staple 15 cannot pivot vwhen mounted in the small diameter bottom spacing disc The large diameter button part or disc 19 has upper and lower peripheral flanges 20 and 21 over which a cloth cover 22 is folded. The outer periphery of the cloth cover is folded over the ange 20 and 21 of the disc 19 and retained against the underface thereof and upon the two discs 10 and 19 being secured together by two spaced screws 23 and 24 that are tightened upon the small diameter disc 10 and extended into small nuts 25 and 26 tightly carried respectively within the respective holes 27 and 28 in the large button disc 19, the folded over edges of the cloth cover being held therebetween. This assembling is done with a screw driver and in a similar manner the parts can be disassembled for the insertion of a renewed cloth cover disc 22 such as a cover of either the same or different color. Accordingly, a tightly assembled button fastener has been provided.

The button is assembled upon a garment border or hem 29 by thrusting the pointed prongs 16 and 17 through the garment material and bending them laterally toward each other as illustrated in FIG. 4. The disc 10 being smaller in diameter easily accommodates the buttonhole 30 in the opposite side of the garment and will be retained therein by the larger diameter disc 19, the disc 10 being disposed for the buttonhole shape. At the same time, this bottom disc 10 serves as a clamp part for the cloth cover and as well provides for a groove in which the S-shaped head of the staple is retained. The large diameter button part 18 can be used with or without a cover and its raised peripheral flanges 20 and 21 serve to provide for a sharp edge over which the cover will be extended in a neat and trim manner.

With a small screw driver the staple button fastener can be disassembled and reassembled with a new cover or top button. It should thus now be apparent that the groove 14 that retains the transverse head 18 of the staple 15 can be provided in the underface of the top button part disc 19 rather than in the small button part 10. The groove 14 permits the flush engagement of the two button parts with one another with the S-shaped head 18 of the staple firmly retained between the parts and against rotation about a horizontal axis that would tend to rupture the holes 27 and 28 of the button material. With the use of the lower button part 10, the wear on the edge of the buttonhole 30 is eliminated since the buttonhole edge does not engage the staple and at the same time with the outward spacing provided by the small diameter button part 10 the garment material is retained smoothly about the button.

In FIGS. 6, 7 and 8, the button body is formed of a solid mold piece 35 with a wide diameter portion and an integral small diameter portion 37 in which a transverse S-shaped head 38 of a staple 39 is embedded. This staple 39 also has bendable prongs 41 and 42 that respectively have their outer ends pointed and inwardly bent at 41' and 42', the ends opposing one another and suicient so that upon the button being applied to the garment and the points -being pressed against a flat surface both will be automatically bent inward against the face of the garment. The pointed or tapered ends will easily penetrate the cloth material and at the same time serve to direct the points inwardly when pressed against the surface.

While various changes may be made in the detailed construction it shall be understood that such changes shall be within the spirit and scope of the present invention as dened by the appended claim.

What is claimed is:

A button comprising a rst disc having an upper peripheral ange, said disc having a pair `of spaced holes vtherethrough and having a substantially S-shaped groove cover stretched over the top of the second disc and under the bottom peripheral bead and clamped between the peripheral edge of the first disc and the body of the second disc, screws extending through the aligned holes, and nuts on the ends of the screws fastening the dises to each other, the prongs of the staple protruding outwardly of the first disc.
