A connector with two magnets with like poles facing towards each other. A first magnet of the two magnets is fixedly attached to a support base and female receptacle situated above the same pole of the first magnet. The second magnet is fixedly attached to a male flange adapted for passage through the female receptacle. The male flange and second magnet are further fixedly attached to a length of material which is longer than the female receptacle, such that the male flange remains within the female receptacle in an assembled condition due to a magnetic force pushing each magnet away from the other. Another embodiment includes a method of use, including lining up the male flange into the female receptacle for locking and pushing down and slightly transversely on the male flange to unlock.
FIELD OF THE DISCLOSED TECHNOLOGY
The disclosed technology relates generally to clasps, and more specifically, to magnetic clasps.
BACKGROUND OF THE DISCLOSED TECHNOLOGY
Clasps and buckles are well known in the art. These articles generally function by affixing or joining two ends together by way of a fastener. The two ends may be two ends of the same device, such as a length of fabric or rope, or may be two ends of two different devices. With a magnetic clasp or fastener, such as, for example, with a doorstop or computer security device, magnets or electromagnets of opposite polarity are attracted to each other. The above are the most commonly known clasps and buckles in the art.
