WHY can't I get refills for my Buttoneer anymore? To see the eminently useful single needle gun-style buttoneer google 'buttoneer 2' and see the original ad from spiketv website. JoAnn now sells what they call "the original Buttoneer", which isn't -- the new double barrelled one is limited to short weak useless fasteners for only standard shirt buttons. In the 80's, Dennison refilled the TRUE original Buttoneer and Buttoneer 2, with strong nylon fasterners for buttons, & other lengths for home/auto repair, crafts. Ronco obviously sold the idea to JoAnn who pressed Dennison to stop making strong, useful fasteners of varied lengths. The NOT-original-buttoneer now sold really robs consumers. The blog reviews agree, but the as-seen-on-tv spammers push them so far down you never see the truth. What a great product this was and could have continued to be.

when I was in the military,a button coming off could spell disaster before an inspection or during work. I told my mom about this during a phone call home.she sent me a Ronco buttoneer.with a little practice I could reattach a button in seconds.saving me a lot of extra duty hours for a uniform in need of repair.the only drawback was the limited number and colors of the fastners.I also needed OD green.I wrote Ronco.they responded telling me I could order the colored fasteners I needed.I was set for the duration of my carreer,I helped many a troop in distress.these fastners were sturdy, I never had one fail,even under combat conditions. now I have grandkids,who constantly lose buttons.I found I could no longer order fasteneers for my Ronco machine,but a new fastner machine could be had.so I obtained one,It's not at all the quality of the old one,made cheap,the fastners break easily,a total waste of time and money,unless you just use buttons for decorations and don't plan to use them. bring back the old machine !

I bought the Original Buttoneer while in the Marines in 1972. It was awesome; no button fastened by it came off, ever. It was useful for fastening other things as well. So I bought this product in the hope that I could recpature the ease of use and reliability of the original. No such luck. This "Original Buttoneer" is useless. The brads are too short, too brittle, and the device is cheaply made and difficult to work. A total waste of money.

it would take nothing for someone to re-create the original, change the name, and sell them here.

I purchased this product hoping to end my button sewing headaches. I had read a previous review which was favorable, but it stated it may take a bit of practice to master the device.

I couldn't get the buttons to fasten at first, but about the third try it worked! Unfortunately, when I tried to fasten the next button, the Buttoneer needle broke! So based on my experience- it's not worth it!

Reading these reviews, there seems to be a split between people who had the old buttoneer and those with the new. Sounds like the old one was great. New one, garbage. I ordered one, read the directions VERY carefully, tried putting several buttons on thin and thick fabric. Did not work at all. Very disappointing as I have a project with a lot of fastening required. Guess I'll have to suck it up and pull out the sewing needle.

I bought it because in the pictures it looked as though waistband buttons were being attached. No such luck. The little plastic "threads" can't reach through the waistband tab of a pair of slacks -- and probably can't be used for any other attaching on heavy duty fabrics.

I started wearing dress pants for work and noticed that one by one my buttons were coming loose. Rather than sew them together I found Buttoneer refills at the local drug store but no actual Buttoneer. Eventually I was able to get my hands on the actual machine and spent about $25 total. The stupid thing didn't work. I tried a few more times and 7 tabs later I finally got it to work through a simple hem.

It claims to be "invisible!" but the thick "clear" plastic is so fat that it shows white and is extremely obviously and tacky on any dark colored items when hemming.

As for buttons, the button stays on... so long as it isn't used. Once I tried using the actual button as, well, a button, the "secure" hold of the plastic broke through. I now have little piece of white plastic sticking out of my pants where I tried to get it to work and where it snapped. I'm very unhappy and after all that time of trying to get this to work I could have just sewed my buttons on.

I found the solution to the problems that the NEW Buttoneer Fastening System (putting on buttons).
I can't go into to it right now due to my other projects I have going on, but thought I'd at least put this out there for those that already have the NEW Buttoneer Fastening System. ***DON'T throw your Buttoneer Fastening System away just yet! And, DON'T buy the NEW Buttoneer Fastening System REFILLS either.***
I will try to get my pictures as well as the description as to how to install the refills (used from another system) to work in the Buttoneer Fastening System. These refills are stronger and do a much better job.
I hope to get back to this site within a week. Thanks
