I 11 L'e/ltor Zi'eaaejl @wash/- Patented Nov. 9, 1948 BUTTON STAPLE ANCHOR AND SHIELDl Irene M. Janes, North Arlington, N. J., assignor of one-half to George Martin, East Orange, N. J.

Application September 21, 1946, Serial No. 698,530

(Cl. 24e-95) 5 Claims.

The present invention relates to ways and means to fasten buttons securely on various articles of wearing apparel and has more particular reference to a novel land improved combination anchor and shield for securing the terminals of quate means has not as yet been offered to ex 5 peditiously anchor said ends. In one prior patent with which I am familiar, it is necessary to twist the staple-ends together for anchoring purposes, and in another, a special bending and clenching tool is required,

Confronted with the foregoing, and considering same unsuccessful attempts at attaining what is desired for commercial practicability, I have evolved and produced what I believe to be an aptly suited and satisfactory device which bends, shapes and clenches said staple-ends, this in a simple and reliable manner and by a single operation.

More specifically, the ends sought are attained, resultfully I submit, through the medium of a simple and economical and practical sectional device, the sections having co-acting elements for expeditiously and suitably bending and clenching the wire staple-ends.

Other objects, features and advantages will become more readily apparent from the following description and the accompanying illustrative drawing.

In the drawing, wherein like numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout the views:

Figure 1 is a group perspective View of an eX- ploded type showing a conventional button, common wire staple and the improved bending, and anchoring shield for the ends of the staple;

Figure 2 is a sectional view showing'the but=` ton and staple applied in association with one of the sections of said shield; and

Figure 3 is a view similar to Figure 1 showing the finished operation, both sections of the shield mated and secured together for anchorage and enclosing purposes.

Referring now to the drawing and particularly to Figure 1, it will be seen that the button, which is of any appropriate style and type and size is iii) denoted by the numeral 5. This is a two-hole button and serves to accommodate a single U- shaped staple 6. The legs or limbs of the staple are passed through the button-holes and the free ends 1 are in readiness for bending, shaping and final clenching. The shield, in a unitary sense, is denoted by the numeral 8 and is composed of complemental sections 3 and ID of appropriate materials and shapes. They are preferably circular in form and of approximately the same diameter as the button 5. Both sections are in the form of flanged receptacles, the flanges constituting rims and the 4rims of the respective sections being frictionally mated and fitted together as shown in Figure 3, The section 9 has its disc-like portion centrally apertured and formed with a suitably drawn neck i I, this adapted to telescope into a companion cup-like member I2 whose rim is flared outwardly as at I3. This part I2 is in effect a bending, shaping and clenching anvil.

` In practice, the limbs I of the staple 6 are passed through the holes in the button as illustrated and then pressed through the cloth or fabric vIlI as shown in Figure 2. Then, the section 9 of the anchor and shield means S is brought into position as here shown, this by forcing the neck I I over said limbs. The part 9 is pressed against the'underside of the fabric I4 and the free terminals of the limbs project well through and be'- yond said neck. Now, b-y fitting the rim or flange of the section Iii over the compleniental rim of the section 9, and'telescoping the neck I I into the cup I2, it is obvious that the free terminals 'I are wedged between the respective parts and formed into returned bends as at the point I5. It follows therefore that sai-d terminals 'I are bent to take the shape shown in Figure 3 and to thus firmly clench same in place. It is evident too that the sections 9 and il) thus tted together provide an enclosing case which completely encompasses and protects the clenched terminals. It is evident therefor that said means 8 quickly functions, in a single step operation, once the part 9 is in place as shown in Figure 2, to assemble the `parts and to clench and anchor the bendable ends of the staple.

A careful consideration of the foregoing description in conjunction with the invention as i1- lustrated in the drawings will enable the reader to obtain a clear understanding and impression of the alleged features of merit and novelty sufcient to clarify the construction `of the invention as hereinafter claimed.

Minor changes in shape, size, materials and rearrangement of parts may be resorted to in actual practice so long as no departure is made from the invention as claimed.

I claim:
