  • Patent number: 4512063
    Abstract: A tack member, which is adapted to be joined with a button body for attachment of a button to a garment fabric, has a shank of a hollow and solid combined structure. The shank is composed of a tapering hollow end portion and a solid base portion. The hollow end portion is deformable into a balloon-like shape, radially swelled and axially compressed, as its tip end is forced against a cap of the button body on its inner side during insertion of the shank into a hollow hub of the button body, during which time the solid base portion opposes bending or other deformation.

  • Patent number: 4509232
    Abstract: An attaching device for attaching a socket member of a snap fastener to a garment has a post having a circular flange extending from a cylindrical stem and a cap mounted thereon. The circular flange has a central portion, an intermediate inclined annular step, a radially outwardly extending annular shoulder, and a plurality of radial ribs extending radially outwardly from an end of the stem to the inclined annular step. The central portion of the flange has a surface adjacent to the inclined annular step which is held against a rounded wall of the cap. The end of the post is axially spaced from the rounded wall of the cap to provide a clearance therebetween. The annular shoulder of the flange is locked in position by an annular curled rim of the cap. Any impact force applied when the attaching device is staked on the socket member is distributed uniformly to the flange, preventing the cap from being deformed.
