SEPARABLE BUTTON.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 786,183, dated March 28, 1905.
Application filed November 3, 1904. Serial No. 231,248.
To (tZZ whom, it 7711(17 colts/Wit:
Be it known thatI, WILLIAM B. BEND, acitizen of the United States, residing at St. Paul, in the county of Ramsey and State of Minnesota, have invented a new and useful Separable Button, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to separable buttons, and has for its object to provide certain new and useful improvements in this class of devices to particularly adapt the button as a shoe-fastening in imitation of the ordinary button-fastening, although the device is capable of general application.
It is furthermore designed to facilitate the application of the button members to the shoe, to obtain a secure locking of the stud member of the button within the socket member, and to effectually house these members when the button-sections are connected, and thereby present the appearance of the ordinary button.
With these and other objects in view the present invention consists in the combination and arrangement of parts, as will be hereinafter more fully described, shown in the accompanying drawings, and particularly pointed out in the appended claim, it being understood that changes in the form, proportion,
size, and minor details may be made within the scope of the claim without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is an elevation of a shoe provided with detachable buttons of the present invention. Fig. 2 is an enlarged detail sectional view of the button with its sections interlocked. Fig. 3 is a detail view of the cap member of the button. Fig. i is a detail perspective view of the stud member. Fig. 5 is a plan view of the socket member with the spring thereon. Fig. 6 is a detail view of the washer for use in connection with the cap. Fig. 7 is a similar view of the washer for use in connection with the stud.
Like characters of reference designate corresponding parts in each and every figure of the drawings.
The stud member of the present button incl udes a base-plate 1, from the center of which rises a substantially cylindrical stud 2, the outer end of which is provided with a tapered or rounded head 8, at the base of which is an annular groove 4:. Suitable prongs 5 project from the peripheral edge of the base-plate at the lower side thereof. To attach this stud to a member-such, for instance, as what will be termed the under edge portion 6 of the upper of a shoe 7, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2- the prongs 5 are passed through the member 6 and engage with a washer-plate 9, applied to the under side of the member and having openings 10 arranged to receive the prongs 5, which are then bent or upset against the outer face of the washer, thereby to rigidly connect the stud with the member 6.
The socket for the reception of the stud 2 consists of a tubular member 11, which is g open at its lower end and provided at said lower end with an external base-flange 12, there being a notch or opening 13 formed in the tube adjacent the upper face of the flange 12. A spring-wire 14 is wrapped around the tubular socket and has one free end portion 15 lying within and projecting entirely across the notch or opening 13 in the tube to form a latch member which has its intermediate portion projected slightly into the interior of the socket.
A rounded cap 16 contains the tubular socket 11 and is provided with a peripheral crimp 17 to snugly embrace the outer peripheral edge of the flange 12 for the purpose of connecting the socket and the cap against accidentalseparation. Suitable prongs 18 extend from the free peripheral edge of the cap and are passed through the flap portion 19 of the upper of the shoe, there being a washer-plate 20 applied to the under side of the fiap and having openings 21 receiving the prongs, which are then bent or upset against the washer, so as to snugly grip the flap portion 19 between the flange 12 and the washer 20, and thereby to rigidly attach the socket member of the button to the flap 19. At the center of the washer 20 is a circular opening 22,
and the member 19 is provided with an opening 23 in alinement with the opening 22 and the opening through the socket 11, so as to permit of the stud 2 being introduced into the socket.
From the foregoing description it will be understood that the two button-sections may be readily connected by pressing the socketsection down upon the stud-section, so as to force the latter into the socket until the latch member 15 snaps into the annular groove 4 of the stud, whereupon the two sections are connected against accidental separation, but may of course be separated by the application of force to draw the socket-section away from the stud-section.
\Vhen the present form of button is applied to a shoe, the latter has the appearance of an ordinary button-shoe, while the buttoning and unbnttoning oi the shoe may be accomplished without the aid of a button-hook and in a simpler and more expeditious manner than can be accomplished with the ordinary form of button. lVIoreover, the socket and the stud are housed within the cap 16, and therefore any blows which are received by the latter will not tend to separate the button-sections, and the spring, the socket, and the stud are effectually housed by the cap, so as to avoid damage thereto.
Having fully described the invention, what is claimed is A separable button comprising a stud having a segmental head with an annular groove at the base of the head and also provided with attaching means at the base of the stud, a tubular socket member to receive the head of the stud and provided with a base-flange and a notch in one side of the socket, a cap surrounding and spaced from the socket and 4 crimped upon the flange thereof, said flange being substantially flush with the open bottom of the cap and constituting a base-close re therefor, the cap being provided with attaching means independent of the socket, and a 45 spring embracing the socket with a portion in the notch to snap into the'groove of the stud.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto ailixed my signature in 5 the presence of two Witnesses.
