Project Description

button snap pull test machine

AT-T4006 Button Snap Pull Tester China Manufacturer

Button Pull Test Machine is also referred to as the button snap pull tester. It is mainly used as a textile testing machine or a toy testing machine intended to determine the breaking or pull strength of buttons, snaps, fasteners, ornaments, etc,. attached to garments, fabrics, toys, shoes, etc.

This snap button pull test machine is an effective tool to help manufacturers to check whether various attachments of the final products are firmly fastened and reach the specified requirements. If the buttons on the baby clothes are easy to fall off, which is not only a quality problem but also a hazard of being swallowed by the baby in contact. Therefore, all buttons and decorative parts on garments must be tested with a button snap pull tester in the product development stage and during the spot check on finished products to check whether their firmness meets relevant safety standards.

There are 2 measuring methods: One is that the operator operates the instrument to continuously apply a pulling force to the targeted button, attachment or ornament until it is separated from the base sheet of the specimen. The force required at the time when the stripping occurs is recorded as the test result.

The other is that a constant pulling force is applied to the button or ornament for a specified period of time. The operator inspects whether the attachment and the base sheet are separated or the damage to the specimen occurs. The state of the measured sample is recorded as the test result.

We can supply different styles of pull testers. In addition to analog machines, we can also supply digital display models and electromechanical models. For more styles and grips, please contact us directly.

The button pull test procedure is not complicated. As long as you have this instrument, you can quickly master the button pull test method.

1) Take out the stand and all the accessories from the package, first install the two control levers on the lower fixture assembly and the upper module located on the supporting rod by screwing. Then install the force gauge to the corresponding module.

2) Connect a hook to the lower part of the force gauge, and then turn the handwheel to lower the hook until making contact with the lower clamping fixture to correct the center point of the fixture. If the hook is not centered in the lower fixture, you can move and adjust the position of the whole lower fixture assembly to align with the center by losing and fastening the 4 butterfly nuts at the bottom. After the position correction is completed, revert the gauge to a suitable height.

3) Hang the weight (15lb) on the hook to complete the button pull test machine calibration.

4) Choose an upper grip that matches the test sample and hang it on the hook to complete the installation of the upper grip.

5) Place a fabric sample with a button on the rubber pad of the lower clamping device, with the button facing upwards, and use the ring fixture and lever to firmly fix the sample to prevent the slippage, ensuring that the fabric is flat and the button to be tested is in the middle of the fixture. The fabric is not affected after the button is held. (Note: If the test sample is the grasp button or buttons with a large size, the lower fixing fixture needs to be replaced with the grasp button accessory kit, and the upper fixture needs to use the grab button grip accordingly).

6) Turn the handwheel to descend the upper grip to an appropriate height and adjust the clamping mouth to hold the button firmly, enabling the upper grip, and the button to be in a vertically relaxed state.

7) Adjust the force gauge to “Zero” position manually, or enable the switch of gauge to be at a “on” position.

8) Press down the control lever to pull the upper grip upward, applying a pulling force to the button until it disengages from the fabric or the fabric tears. Or apply specified tensile force and hold for a given time. Generally, each button must be able to withstand a minimum of 17 lb (7.72 kg) of pulling force and need to be maintained for 10 seconds without any trace of looseness or damage.

9) At least 20 buttons must be tested for each button style, and all of them have to be considered qualified. If one of them is loose or damaged, all need to be replaced and tested again.

What’s the Significance of Conducting the Snap Button Pull Test?2021-09-24T02:25:17+00:00
snap fasteners on clothes

Snap Fastners on Clothes

The size of the snapping force of a snap fastener is directly related to how much force the user needs to fasten and open it. It is an important indicator for button manufacturers to control quality and improve user experience. If it takes a lot of force to fasten and open the snap fastener, it will be difficult for the user to fasten and separate the male and female parts of the snap fastener during use. If the required force is too small, it will cause the male part and female part to peel off automatically, which brings a very bad experience to the user. If you want to make high-quality snap fasteners, these situations are not allowed.

Whether buttons can be properly stitched on clothes or whether other accessories can be firmly fixed on the clothes affects the wearing and use, and affects the appearance. Suppose you bought a shirt you like for 200 dollars in a store, but one button on it has fallen off after wearing it twice. What a terrible experience. You may never go to this store again to buy clothes next time, and even you will never buy clothes of this brand again. It is a huge loss for manufacturers. It is not conducive to the reputation of the brand but also brings economic losses and after-sale troubles.

Ornaments & Buttons on Baby Clothes

In order to be beautiful and functional, in many baby toys and clothing, designers inevitably design some small ornaments, buttons, or other small accessories to be attached to the products. We know that babies like to break or bite things by nature. Unlike adults, they can distinguish what can be eaten and what cannot be eaten. If these small attachments fall off easily and happen to be bitten by the baby and swallowed into the throat. It may cause the baby to suffocate, which is very terrible.

Do we have a test device to avoid the bad situations listed above?

Yes, the emergence of the snap button pull test machine has solved these problems. It can simulate the scene where attachments on clothing, toys or other products are pulled to evaluate whether the quality is up to standards.

Is is a testing instrument with a simple structure but diverse functions and accurate measurement. It can accept snaps, buttons, ornaments and other attachments of different materials, sizes and shapes.

The manufacturer only needs to mount the sample with buttons or other attachments into the machine in the laboratory to test the vertical tension directly. The force value of the attachment can be read directly through the force gauge on the instrument or preset a specified force to pull the attachment and check whether the attachment can withstand this force value.

What Types of Buttons and Snaps Can Be Tested Using This Snap Tester?2021-09-24T04:06:22+00:00

This pull tester is capable of dealing with all types of buttons and snaps, including but not limited to the following types:

Snap Buttons

The snap button is one of the most commonly used types of buttons. It consists of four parts, divided into four parts: A, B, C, D from top to bottom: A and B are called female buckles, and patterns can be engraved on the outer surface. There is a socket in the middle, and two parallel springs are located on the sides of the hole; C and D are called male buckles, and a stud protrudes in the middle. The stud is pressed into the socket of the female buckle and clamped by the springs to generate opening and closing force to fix the clothes.

snap buttons

Snap Buttons

The snap button is made of metal or plastic. Its basic models depend on the size of parts B, C and D, whose usual models include 655, 633 and 831. The size of the part A can be changed at will, but parts B, C and D generally have their common fixed sizes. Model 655 can be used with part A with a diameter of less than 10 mm, Model 633 can be used with part A with a diameter of 11 mm to 15 mm, and Model 831 can be used with part A with a diameter of 15 mm or more.

Snap buttons are widely used in clothing, luggage, handbags, shoes, hats and other industries.

prong snap buttons

Prong Snap Buttons

Prong Snap Buttons

The prong snap button is similar to the snap button. It is also composed of 4 parts, two of which are the same. Two small iron rings with 5 prongs on each pierce the other side of the fabric for fixation. Because the prongs of the prong snap button are short, it is not suitable for thick positions. Generally, the prong snap button can be used as fasteners for summer, children’s clothes, or thin bags. The fabric does not need to be punched during the installation of the prong snap button, and its sharp prongs can directly penetrate from the front to the back of the fabric. In general, the outermost two parts of the prong snap button is made of zinc alloy, copper, iron, and plastic, and the inner two parts are made of copper or iron.

Shank Buttons

The shank button is also called as the jeans button. it is made up of the upper button (Part A) and the lower nail (Part B). The operator combines the two parts by striking. The main materials of jeans buckle include copper, iron, zinc alloy, aluminum and so on. It is mainly suitable for thicker jeans fabrics. It is the reason why its name is called the jeans button.

The Rivet consists of two parts, the rivet cap (part A) and the bottom nail (part B). It is mainly used to stitch the edges and corners of thicker fabrics to make clothing more beautiful and generous. Jeans, backpacks, jacket pockets and other clothing are often accompanied by rivets with various styles, shapes, sizes, and various colors. The patterns on the cap can also be designed in a variety of ways.


The eyelet is a button with a hole used on clothing or fabric. Most of the time, its shape is round or irregularly circle, and a certain area of the hole in the middle plays a role of ventilation, stringing or aesthetics. It is mainly used for hats, clothing, luggage, handbags, belts, shoes, packaging supplies, etc. The most common application we see in our life is the eyelet on the sneaker. It is generally produced with 62# copper or 65# copper and can also be produced with iron or stainless steel.

Hole Buttons

Hole Buttons

Hole buttons are very common buttons in daily life. For example, we can often see them in shirts and T-shirts. The hole button covers many different styles, including 2 hole buttons, 3 hole buttons, 4 hole buttons, etc. Their materials are also very extensive, including copper, zinc alloy, resin, plastic, coconut shell, shells, etc. Nailing hole buttons is very simple. Even ordinary people can operate them at home, and the tools needed are ordinary needles and threads.

Loop Buttons

The loop button is a kind of button in clothing accessories. You can usually see them on the clothes we wear. Its binding is stitched in the clothes with needles and threads, which is called a hand-sewn button. The hand-sewn buttons can not only connect the clothes and keep them tightly insulated but also make wearers neat and tidy. The unique hand-sewn buttons are also capable of embellishing the clothes. Therefore, it is an indispensable part of the garment structure. According to the material, loop buttons can be divided into copper buttons, alloy buttons, resin buttons, plastic buttons, shell buttons, wood buttons, etc.

How To Do The Calibration of the Button Pull Tester?2021-09-24T05:56:01+00:00

1. Remove the upper fixture and return the push-pull gauge to zero.

2. Hang the calibrated standard weight of 15 lb on the hook at the bottom of the push-pull meter. (Do not beyond the capacity range of the push-pull meter).

3. Check whether the force value displayed by the push-pull gauge is consistent with the weight.

How Do I Determine Whether the Sample Passes the Test Based on Button Pull Test Requirements?2021-09-24T05:58:30+00:00

If applying a specified tensile force to the button on the garment or the fabric for a specified time as agreed upon by the purchaser and the seller, the button is not separated from the socket or stud or fabric is not torn. Both cases pass the test.

Why Do I Choose IMADA Force Gauge?2021-09-24T06:10:38+00:00

In our standard configuration, a high-quality force gauge is configured, whose performance is able to meet almost all test items. The IMADA push-pull gauge is just an alternative.

IMADA is a Japanese company that specializes in designing and manufacturing various force measuring instruments. It was established in 1947 and had a high reputation all over the world. IMADA force gauge is our optional part. If you have very high requirements for measurement accuracy and the budget is sufficient, you can choose it.
