Convenience Button / Convenience Button

Convenience Button

During raining days, when we want to roll up the umbrella. We need to button it. Then there exist some problems. If we don't decurl the belt on the umbrella ,we may not button the umbrella .Or we just turn the belt to the wrong direction. Or we may get our coat wet.
The convenient umbrella looks like a common one. There is a little strong magnet inside each rib of the umbrella. When we want to roll the umbrella up, we just need to turn it slightly. The button is buttoned as unlike poles attract. This simpler and interesting way brings us much convenience.
