JUL Lisbon Trigger Closure in Black

The Lisbon Trigger is a unique and bold closure ideal for chunky garments. The Trigger has a tension release bar that opens the trigger, allowing one side to slip out of the tab on one side. The Lisbon tabs attach easily to the garment by simply screwing into the fabric. This screw-in approach is ideal for knitwear, crocheted fabric, or loosely woven fabrics where the threaded cylinders that make this type of closure possible can just be worked between stitches/threads. Backing disks are included and held in place by the screws on the wrong side of the fabric to keep the closure secure on the garment.

Accessorize your handmade garments with this stunning beauty that attaches easily by simply screwing into the fabric and opens and closes with a hinged spring gate ring that slips easily off the tab on either side.

Features

  • Made in the USA
  • Genuine leather
  • Dimensions - 6" wide and 2" high at the middle of the lock; leather bands are 1" high.

The screw-in approach is ideal for knitwear, crocheted fabric, or loosely woven fabrics where the threaded cylinders that make this type of closure possible can just be worked between stitches/threads. Backing disks are included and held in place by the screws on the wrong side of the fabric to keep the closure secure on the garment.

For semi-permanent attachment of this, and similar, closure(s), place a tiny drop of clear nail polish inside the threaded cylinder before screwing it in. This keeps the screw snug but still allows it to be unscrewed when you seek to move the closure somewhere else.

These innovative screw-in "buttons" can be used not only as substitutes for conventional buttons, they may also be used to create shaping, to attach one knitted piece to another, and to baste knitted fabric so that it stays in place semi-permanently. Be creative!
