this product was okay, but they really need to have longer pieces available so you
can attach buttons or other stuff to heavier things. Right now if you are going to
try to use it on anything heavier than a dress shirt, it will not work. so if anyone
knows where you can get refills that are longer it would be wonderful.
I have owned a Butoneer for over 10 years and it still works. I have used it for shirts and thicker material such as pants and jeans. The trick to working with thicker material is to push the material from the back side with tweezers to make sure the prongs completely prodrude through the material and is snug against the buttoneer before you squeeze the trigger. My wife keeps stealing it! Finding refills can be tricky.
I was getting to be not as adept at sewing on buttons like I was when I was younger...hard to thread that needle,finding the right button and right color thread etc. So I asked my wife if we had a "buttoneer". She looked all over and decided we never had one but knew what I meant.So I googled it and found Wal Mart had it online. I ordered it and three days later it was in the mailbox. I opened it up and tried it on a pair of shorts..they had the thick material where the button went so I loaded the buttoneer and went at it. Well I tried to poke it through the thick cotton to no avail...so I got the bright idea of getting a large needle to pre punch the material...it was all I needed to do! I put that button on lickity split! You might have to support the back of thick fabrics with tweezrs or a thimble but that's no big deal. For the price it still works like advertised long ago! Get one, you won't regret it. By the way i ordered extra fasteners also.
This item is no longer in stores. I was very happy to find it online with Walmart
The design of the instrument is different and now does not let the user select the length of the fastener and you get far fewer fasteners than the original had. The concept is the same but the redesign of the tool and fasteners make it a less useful item.
If I had not used multiple fasteners trying to get a button fastened I would return it.
This can only be used with very thin material...not very secure fastener.
This is the best I've seen for fixing lost bottons, attaching items for quick fixes that will last without needing to get out a needle and thread!
I reluctantly bought the Buttoneer even though it had mixed reviews. I can now say that this is one of the worst products I've ever encountered. It won't even fasten a button through 1 layer of material. I will be returning it.
This was a horrible experience, I ordered the Buttoneer and when I clicked on submit the web site just hung there for over 5 min. After closing the web page and waiting for about 15 min I never received a confirmation email that my ordered was completed. Not knowing the status of the order and not having a confirmation number to check on I opened the page again and ordered because it was apparent that my order never went through. After clicking on submit this time I received 2 separate confirmation emails within seconds of each other each with different confirmation numbers. This told me that I had doubled ordered and the first order from over 20 min ago came through the same time as the most recent order 2 min ago. This was just the ordering portion, when the product arrived it is good for putting buttons on shirts but the needles are simply not strong enough to put buttons on pants. I tried on Khaki cotton material but it broke the needle so this product is useless to me and now I have two of them because of the web site fiasco. In the future I will stick with Amazon because of their return policy, this was simply too frustrating. Hope this helps for future customers.
THE BUTTONEER IS THE MOST WORTHLESS PIECE OF GARBAGE THAT I EVER WASTED MY HARD EARNED MONEY ON. I WENT THROUGH TWO OF THE INSERTS AND EACH AND EVERY ONE JUST BROKE OFF. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE TO MY WORST ENEMY.
As a senior, my fingers are not as supple as they used to be so sewing on buttons becomes a difficult task: threading a needle, pushing the needle through fabric, tieing off the thread at the end is troublesome. Using the Buttoneer only requires
pushing the fastener into the device, putting the button on the device, pushing the device against the fabric and pulling the trigger; a two or three minute task.
As a former traveling business manager I would have appreciated having a Buttoneeer
in my suitcase.
I am a crafter and was sewing alot of buttons on things when a friend suggested a Buttoneer. I had heard of them but was not even sure they were still being made. Much to my delight I found it on Walmart.com and it works beautifully. Now I can attach a button in literally 30 seconds instead of it taking 5 minutes. Well worth the minimal $10 investment.
I have had my Buttoneer for many years!! I loved how quick I could re-attach buttons. I misplaced that Buttoneer some time ago, and have been keeping my eyes open in my mail order catalogues. However, Google did it again...I found it here at Walmart. I am going to buy several, plus several refills as well. The Singer brand button fixer (can't remember its name) is VERY complicated to use. It's also sharp and dangerous to use as well.
this works great as I misplaced my first one and had to get another one. works great, nothing hard about how it works. Directions are very simple and it works very quickly. And it beats a needle and thread.
Glad we were able to find it again
product, price & delivery were fine, although box was smashed, product was undamaged
The Buttoneer never went away, but they can disappear and after a couple of years you have to get another one. They can be a pain to use occasionally, but they usually work and they sure make life easier for those of us who seem to pop buttons off everything. Anything but a flat surface is an opportunity to knock a button off and I can sew, but I can do 10 Buttoneer buttons in the time I can sew one on.
This is nothing like my original buttoneer. My original one had only one prong and was more sturdy. Pushing two prongs though material is harder. It is a hit or miss getting it to work right, with both ends of the plastic to go to the other side of the material. The plastic is also very short. It would NOT work for a thick button on a coat front.
I had high expectations this would solve a lot of craft problems but it just didn't match expectations. VERY difficult to load the fasteners correctly, and half the time they don't attach properly. No doubt I'll get better with practice but after an hour of using it I'm ready to stick it in a drawer and go back to needle & thread. Too bad. A great idea that didn't pan out.
I actually have the "original" buttoneer and needed some refills but needed diff colors and sizes and opted to purchase this item. So disappointed because it is totally different from the one I have had since the 70's. Mine uses an "I" shaped connector and came in all colors and lengths. This item uses a "U" type -I havent tried it yet but not very hopeful that it will work on my jacket buttons which also have a button behind them.
