Most days somebody calls me on the Toll Free number wanting to know more about the Magic Buttoner family. I am more than happy to talk to potential customers especially when they need instructions or comparison to other buttoners!
Usually we talk about the methods of use and how I came to invent them. You see I invented all the buttoners for personal use being a Tool Maker it was not too hard to use the principles I've learned through the years. As my Arthritis got worse I had a hard time fastening my clothes. If you have Arthritis some days it feels as if God has blessed you and all is well. Other days you can't pick-up a dime.
Because of my inactivity I had gained a few pounds I invented Magic Buttoner for pants when one day I got a pair of jeans fresh from the dryer and I couldn't button them. I worked once I got an idea and came up with the lever design. I first called it Big Belly Buttoner that was fine for me because it worked well and I didn't care. As I made a few more and gave them to family and friends they said I should mass market them. But, I had to change the name BBB wouldn't fly for many especially women thus Magic Buttoner was born.
