Emergency button

People get embarrassed when their button on their clothes is missing outdoors.

This emergency button is suggested to solve the inconvenience simply.

The users could easily sew their buttons on their clothes without a needle and thread.

This card-sized product is highly portable as it could be in a wallet.

This is easy to use. Just detach the button from the card and fit the button in a cloth with the needle attached in the button.

The 90-degree-bending needle helps the button not to pop off from the cloth easily.

Now we do not need to be embarrassed when a button is missing outdoors.
