H. BUNCH.
BUTTON FASTBNER.
No. 337,738. Patented Mar. 9, 1886.
Elven/i0 3 UNITED STATES ATENT OFFICE.
HENRY BUNCH, OF GARRETTSVILLE, OHIO.
BUTTON-FASTENER.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 337,738, dated March 9, 1886.
Application filed June 25,1885. Serial No.169,796.
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, HENRY BUNCH, of Garrettsville, in the county of Portage and State of Ohio, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Button-Fasteners, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to fastenings for buttons for garments or wearing-apparel; and it consists of a bar of peculiar construction arranged to be put through the eye or loop of the button.
The invention has for its object to provide a simple, easy, and ready means of attaching buttons without sewing.
The invention is designed as an improvement upon the device embodied in Patent No. 228,298, of 1880. In that patent the bend is so far removed from the ends of the wire as to allow the eye of the but-ton a considerable play or looseness, which is not desirable.
In my fastener I not only throw the bend inward upon the same plane with the other parts of the fastener, to place the strain in the center and have it bear equally on both sides of the button-eye, but I arrange the points of the fastener so that one point, when in use, will bear upon either side of the button-eye and hold it fairly in the center of the bend.
\Vhen in use, the fastener rests upon the edge which carries the points 0. The bend extends in that direction. The pressure of the fabric forces the points 0 inward to bear against the sides of the bend D and hold the button-eye in place.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 represents a button having my improved bar 7 in place, as when the button is attached to a garment. Fig. 2 shows the bar hanging in the eye or loop of the button, ready to be atttched to or detached from a garment, the bar being put through an eyelet in the garment. Fig. 3 is an enlarged section showing the relation of the several parts with the garment after the button has been secured.
A represents a button commonly used on garments, which has an eye or loop, B, that is put through an eyelet provided in garments for the purpose.
(No model.)
C is a bar of metal, either square or round, which I bend in the form shownthat is, folding each end over onto itself to near the middle, leaving sufficient space between the folds and the sides of the bar for the loop or eye of the button to pass in between, also leaving space between the folded ends to permit making the crook D in the middle of the bar. The ends of the bar are also beveled inward. The bend or crook D projects inward, and the points 0 of the fastener C are arranged so as to be pressed by the fabric, one upon either side of the eye of the button, and to hold it steadily in place.
To attach this button the bar is slipped to one end on the eye. Then the bar is pushed through the eyelet in the garment, bringing the eye or loop through the eyelet, then returning the bar in the eye to the middle part, so that the eye restsin the crook D. The button is then securely fastened, and may be readily removed at pleasure.
I am aware of Patent No. 54,556, of 1866, which shows a somewhat similar device; but that fastener has to be bent in order to engage the eye of the button.
In my device the points 0, or springarms, are normally at such a position as to allow the ready engagement of the button at any time, and it is only when in use against the fabric that said arms or point-s are sprung in against the bend.
Having described my invention, I claim An improved button-fastener consisting of a single piece or bar of metal bent to form a central eye or loop to receive the eye of a button, its arms being turned back upon themselves, so that the free ends terminate on each side of, near to, and in a line with the crown of the loop, all substantially as set forth.
HENRY BUNCH.
