CONNECT Magnetic Buttons:

CONNECT is a revolutionary new way to perform the everyday task of buttoning one’s shirt without effort. These buttons connect to each other using magnetic attraction. This two-piece design attaches to clothing via a simple two-prong inter-locking mechanism, which dispenses of the need for sewing. Their ease of use simplifies this common task for everyone including the physically challenged. This way, regular, injured or even the physically challenged persons will appreciate their intuitive and effortless ease of use.
