BUTTON AND BUTTON-FASTENING.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 375,698, dated December 27, 1887.
Application filed June 9, 1887. Serial No. 240,019. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JOHN EWIG, a citizen of the United States, residin gin Washington city, in the District of Columbia, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Button- Fastenings; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of theinvention, such as will enable others skilledin the artto which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in button-fastenings for garments, and has for its object to provide a button that may be easily and readily applied to the clothing,and when so applied will prove durable and substantial.
To this end my invention consists in a button provided with the novel fastening hereinafter fully described, and more particularly pointed out in the claims, due reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, wherein- Figure l is a perspective view of a button provided with my improved fastening; Fig. 2, a view of a modification thereof; Fig. 3, a view showing the same applied to a garment, and Fig. 4 a rear View of the fastening shown in Figs. 2 and 3 applied. to a garment.
Referring to the drawings, the letter A indicates a button-head formed of any of the usual or preferred substances, and B indicates a tubular shank, one end of which is firmly embedded or otherwise secured to the buttonhead A. This shank for ashort distance, preferably about oneeighth of an inch, is cylindrical in cross-section, and from thence is bifurcated, terminating in two flat legs or members, b b. Each of these legs I) I) near its extremity is provided on each side with a notch or recess, 0 o, for the purpose as above described.
The button as above described is applied to a garment as follows: The button is grasped between the thumb and forefinger and the legs I) b thrust through the garment at the point desired until the shoulderd (2, formed on the legs b b at the point where said legs meet and join the tubular shank B, has passed through the cloth. The legs-b b are then bent over after the manner of the ordinary and wellknown paper fastener and stitches passed through the cloth and around or within the notches a 0, thus preventing the button and its shank from rotating and firmly securing the entire devicein place.
By making the shank B cylindrical or tubular in cross-section it will not cut or fray the edges of the button-hole with which the button is caused to engage, and by allowing the tubular shank B to project upon the outside of the cloth room is afforded for the thickness of the cloth around the button-hole when it is interposed between the buttonhead and the garment to which it is attached.
In Figs. 2 and 3 I have shown a modified form of fastening, wherein A represents the button-head, having embedded therein the tubular shank B, terminating in a single fiat shank, I). D indicates a V-shaped plate of sheet metal, having perforations 6.. The said plate D is placed at the reverse side of the cloth at the point at which it is desired to affix the button, and is stitched to the garment by threads passing through the cloth and through the perforations e. The plate Dis provided with a slot, f, and the shank b of the button-head A is passed through the cloth and through the slot f of the plate D, and then turned over and clinched down. By forming the plate D in the form of an inverted V the strain upon the cloth is more evenly distributed, the greater part of the strain upon the cloth being at the points gg, near the extremities of the plate D,where said plate is stitched to the cloth, not only forming a very durable fastening, Ebut also one very little liable to wrinkle the cloth.
In both of the devices above described the tubular shank B and its leg or legs I) may be formed in one piece of metal, as illustrated in Fig. 1, or the leg or legs I) and the tubular shank B may be formed separate and soldered or otherwise fastened together, as shown in Figs. 2 and 3. r
it will be understood that either of the devices shown in Figs. 1 and 2 may be used in connection with the V-shaped plate D, and when that shown in Fig. lis used the two legs b b are passed through the slotf in the plate D and bent or clinched down in opposite diplate D, having perforations e and slotf, the said plate being secured to one side of the rections. cloth, and the flat leg I) being passed through 1 Having thus described my invention, what the cloth from the opposite side and through 5 I claim is the slotfand then clinched down, substanl. The button herein described, having a tially in the manner shown and described. head and tubular shank terminating in flat in- In testimony whereof I affix my signature in tegral securing-prongs, all substantially as set presence of two witnesses. forth. JOHN EVVIG.
