i()l ' As disclosed in my prior patent referred to,
the primary purpose and object of the invention
is to provide a fastener for detachably securing
buttons, ornaments and the like, of the “sew-on”
type, to a fabric. The fastener consists of two
1li" members, arranged ordinarily one on eachside of
stand until the cement hardens.
In the accompanying drawing, I have shown a
number of the more important uses of the inven
tion but do not wish to be understood as intend
ing to limit myself to the same, as it will be ap
parent that the invention may be applied to many 1’51‘

various kinds.
The fastener member on the outside of the fabric

is attached to the button and the method de
20 scribed for effecting attachment, is to sew the
member to the button, which may then be de
tachably secured at any place desired on a gar
ment or other fabric, by screwing the inner fas
tener member on the outer button member,
25 through the intervening fabric.
While sewing is a convenient method of attach
ing the button or other article to the outer fas
tener member, a thread tie or binder has limited
life as the thread stretches, wears and eventually
30 breaks and for that reason, a stronger and more
ylasting form of attachment is desirable, such, for
example, as cement or any other strong and last
ing adhesive, which will serve to bind the button.
securely to the outer member of the fastener.
While cement or its equivalent would serve
alone, both’cement and thread can be used to
advantage, as the thread will tie and hold the
button and fastener member together in centered
relation, until the cement sets or hardens, to
40 make the connection permanent.
A cement or equivalent binder has many ad
clearness of illustration, showing the invention
applied to a “sew-on” type of button, ornament
or the like. In this view, both thread and cement
are employed to secure the button to the outer
member of the fastener.
Fig. 2 is a similar view, showing the application
of a slightly modified form of the invention to
an ornament or other article, indicated diagram
matically by a rectangle, lacking thread openings
and secured by cement alone.
Fig. 3 is a View in perspective of the inner
member of the fastener.
Fig. 4 is a similar view of a slightly modified
form of the same.
Fig. 5 is a sectional View, showing a further 35
modification, and
\ Fig. 6 shows the fastener members rearranged
to stand outward from the surface of the fabric,
to avoid the projection on the inner side thereof,
as in Fig. 1.
Referring now to the drawing, l represents

purpose, as it enables women to make all buttons,
3 and 4 are members of the fastener by which
ornaments, trimmings, etc., sewed fast to their
45 garments, readily removable and replaceable, for
purposes of laundering, cleaning or remodeling
the garments and saves the labor and wear and
tear on the fabrics involved in the present prac
tice of cutting off the buttons, etc., and sewing
50 them on again, after garments have been washed,
cleaned or re-made.
A cement or equivalent binder has a more ex
tensive use than a thread tie, as it can be applied,
regardless of Whether the buttons or other ar
55 ticles are of the “sew-on” type or not, thereby
the button, ornament or the like, is detachably
secured to the fabric. The fastener member 3, 45
shown on the outside of the fabric, will herein
after be termed the outer member and the fas
tener member 4, shown in Figs. 1 and 6, on the
inside of the fabric, will hereinafter be termed
the inner member.
The outer member 3 may be made in the form
of a frustro-conical shell, as shown in Figs. 1 and
6, or of the same exterior form but solid and re
cessed at its upper end, and is shown thus modified
in Fig. 2. Aside from the difference mentioned, 55
the members 3, shown in Figs. l and 2, are sub
stantially identical.
To enable either form to be sewed to a button,
ornament or the like, as disclosed in my prior
fective through fabrics of different thickness.
patent, above referred to, a number of suitably
disposed openings 5, 5, etc., are provided therein
external body shape suitable for engagement
for the passage of thread, indicated at 6, in Fig. 1.
In the preferred embodiment of the invention,
if the outer fastener member is sewed to the
10 button, the thread merely serves to tie the two to
gether temporarily or until the cement or its
equivalent, introduced between them, as indicated
at l, sets or hardens and makes the connection
Again, as disclosed in the patent referred to,
the fastener members are given a frustro-conical
shape to make the screw-thread connection ef
As the body of the outer fastener member is
made of a size not larger than is necessary to en
circle and enclose the thread opening formation
of the ordinary button, a drop or two of cement
or its equivalent, in or on the upper end of the
20 fastener member, will be sufficient to secure it to
the button. To steady the fastener member on
the button and give added strength to the cement
joint formed, the member is preferably provided
at its upper end with a flange 8, which extends the
Contact surface of the member and the interven
ing layer of cement against the under side of the
button, as shown.
While cement and thread, as here employed,
are merely different forms of attaching means
and serve the same purpose, in enabling women to
make the buttons, ornaments and the like, in use
on their dresses, readily removable and replace
able, without damaging the fabric, the one (ce
ment) is quickly and easily applied and is there
after lasting and permanent, while the other
(thread) involves considerable time and labor and
is then only temporary, requiring renewal from
time to time.
As in my prior patent referred to, the members
of the fastener are designed to be connected
40 through the fabric, without piercing or punctur
ing the same and for this purpose are screw
threaded as indicated at 9.
The inner fastener member 4 may be given an
by a small socket wrench (not shown), as indi
cated at I0 in Fig. 3, or it may be modified to
have an upper flange I I, thus shaped, as shown in
Fig. 4. The use of a wrench is not ordinarily 10
necessary but, if used, gives added security by
bringing the fastener members into closer rela
tion than is possible by a thumb and finger grip.
The inner member 4 as shown, may be open or
closed at the bottom excepting when used to se 15
cure fabrics, such as tapestries, portières, etc., to
the walls of woodwork of a room and for such use,
the bottom is closed and provided with a central
opening for passage of a tack or nail l2', as in the
modification shown in Fig. 5, for securing the 20
inner member to the Wall or woodwork.
If the projection of the fastener members on
the inside of the fabric, as shown in Fig. l, is
found objectionable for any reason, they may be
arranged to stand up from the outer surface 25
of the fabric, as in the modification shown in
Fig. 6.
As the application and many important ad
vantages of the invention will be apparent from
the foregoing, further description of the same Will 30
not be given.
Having described my invention, I claim:
A fastener for removably securing a button,
ornament or the like to a fabric, comprising two
members, provided with frustro-conical screw 35
thread interengaging means cooperating to re
ceive a fabric interposed without puncture there
between, one of the members having a flange at
its upper end, and means integrally securing it
to a button, ornament or the like.
