Hold me if you can

I have seen some children giving in handling buttons on clothes and asking their parents a help. However, handling buttons on their own, contributes a brain development, sense and an ability to manipulate small things. Also, it is well-known that we are losing our senses of body as we are getting older. The elderly might have some inconvenience to adjust buttons on shirts. This button will take these problems away from us. The one side of this button has been slightly up like a grip so that we can hold it more conveniently to fasten clothes. Even when it is on the floor or its surface is slippery, we could collect it more easily.
