Application filed July 9, 1918. Serial No. 244,003.
at! whom it may concern.
Be it known that I, FRED PARKER, citizen of the United States, residing at Oakland, in the county of Alameda and State of California, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Button- 'looks, of which the following is a specification.
This invention is a collar buttoner for buttoning a collar on a shirt.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing which forms a part of this specification and the appended claim.
Referrin to the drawing:
Figure 1 is a view illustrating the buttoner ging a collar button for buttoning the flap of the collar.
Fig. 2 is a View illustrating the buttoner in the act of buttoning the inner flap of the collar on the collar button.
Fig. 3 is a View illustrating the buttoner having buttoned both flaps of the collar and the buttoner ready to be disengaged from.
the collar button.
Fig. 4t is an end View of the hook end of the buttoner.
Fig. 5 is an enlarged side View of the buttoner hook.
is a view similar to Fig- 5 taken at degrees to Fig. 5.
' 7 is a view similar to Fig. 5 lookthe left side of the hook as shown in My collar buttoner comprises a shank 1, a screw shaped hook 2 on one end of said shank and a handle 3 on the other end of the shank.
The end portion 2 of the hook 2 is substantially at right angles to the shank l and is approximately half a complete turn, which allows it. to pass over the head of the collar button.
In order to button a collar with my buttoner, the hook 2 may be inserted through the button hole of one of the collar flaps 4 and hooked over the head 5 of the collar button 6; the flap 4 is then pressed inward so that the collar button head 5 and the screw hook engage the collar button hole in said flap; the handle 3 is grasped and the button hook is turned, causing the screw hook to engage the flap 4 at the edge of its collar button hole and force the flap over the head of the button, the head passing through the collar button hole. The hook 2 may then be removed from the head of the collar button for buttoning the other flap '4' of the collar. In order to' button flap 7 of the collar, the hook 2 is inserted through the collar button hole inv the flap 7 and again hooked over the head 5 of the collar button: the flap 7 is then pressed inward and the collar button hook turned and the flap is buttoned in the. same manner as flap 4:.
Having described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:
It collar buttoner including a shank, a hook, on the end of the shank, the end portion of the hook extending substantially at right angles to the shank to a point sutficient only to engage the head of the collar button, the rest of the hook being screwshaped to enable the shank to be pulled and rotated to cause the screw-shaped hook portion to engage the collar button hole to draw the head of the collar button through the button hole.
. In testimony whereof I alfix my signature.
