Patented Sept. 16, 1952 u i ITYEDijj Es PAT N 'DF -IQE i R-kiNG FOR IDENTIFIVCATIYON e nae-as o; naenitacnoincinnati. Ohio sn of one-half to Irvin Frey; Cincinnati, Ohio Application August 13, 1947, Serial No. 768,370
My invention relates to marking garments for identification prior to dry cleaning or laundering and involves the use of a novel device,
together with a new method of application of an identification tag to garments to be dry cleaned or laundered.
Practically all dry cleaning establishments It is the object of my invention to provide a method of attaching an identification tag to a garment by means of a button which is particularly constructed to facilitate removal of the identification tag.
It is an object of my invention to provide a button for attaching an identification tag which will absorb all strains on the fabric and avoid danger of the tag;tearing'off or tearing the garment itself.
A further object is the provision of a type of button which may be made of Various colors of fibre or plastic and which may thus be employed for additional marks or even used in advertising the dry cleaning services.
Since my preferred type of button is a flat disc it may be made very inexpensively.
A particular object is the provision of a button which may be easily removed from thegarment Without likelihood oftearing the fabric.
It is my object to provide a button which will not break like an ordinary button but which may be applied with either face against the identification tag so that no extra labor is involved in feeding buttons to the button sewing machine. 7 The'foregoing objects and other advantages which will be further'explained, I accomplish by the use of devices of which preferred embodiments are shown in the drawing, thesedevices being used in a novel method which will be outlined. Referring to the drawings: Figure 1 is a plan view of a preferred button.
Figure 2 is a sideelevation of the button shown in Figure 1.
type of Figure 3 is an enlarged sectional view'along the lines 3-3 in Figure l.
1 arrangement the attachment of the tag is ob- 3 Claims. (Cl. 40-2) Figure 5 shows a, button stitched in place holding an identification tag to a garment.
Figure 6 is a sectional view along the lines 6-6 of Figure 5.
Figure '7 shows how the button and tag may be removed without danger.
The; button I is a fiat, perfectly round disc having thread apertures 2 spaced so as to fit the ordinary button sewing machine. Extending between the thread apertures 2 there isslot 3 1 slot 3.
In Figure 7 there is illustrated the manner in which the tip of a knife 1 may be inserted within the slot to cut the thread with which the identification tag is secured to the garment.
Where identification tags are stitched directly to the garment cutting the thread is likely to cut'the garment. Pullingthetag off is likely to tear the garment. Where the tags arestapled with metal staples there'is always danger of I the staples tearing the garme'nt. With my new viously so secure that no one would think of tryingto pull the tag off. The use of the tip of a knife or scissors to cut the tag on is thus rendered a, complete necessity in accordance with my arrangement. i
Modifications in size andshape will readily 1 occur to those skilled in the art without departing from the principle of my invention. If a wire staple is used instead of thread to hold the button in place, the slot 3 will serve as a guide for a sharp instrument with which the staple may be Withdrawn.
Y Figure 4 is a perspective view of the button on a slightly enlarged size.
Of course if .a'very weak thread is used to stitch'the button to the garment, a sharp jerkg 1. In combination with an identification ta for attachment to a garment, a button stitched to the garment outside the tag, reinforcing and securing said tag in position on said garment, and said button having a slot extending across at a substantial angle to the line along which the stitching extends, said slot having dimensions adapted to guide a cutting instrument to cut the stitching.
2. The combination claimed in claim 1 wherein said stitching comprises thread.
3. The combination claimed in claim 1 wherein said stitching comprises a wire staple.
