May 20, I will do my best to describe this beauty! Imagine a wooden dowel, approximately the shape and size of a biro pen. It has an “eye” like a needle, through which a loop of string is threaded. The length of the loop of string is approximately half the length of the bbuch. This item can be handed out because there is nothing to find. Here is where the fun starts. The magician passes the dowel through a buttonhole of the jacket or whatever the spectator is wearing.

Then passes the dowel through the string loop.

When the spectator tries to remove it, they find they cannot! No matter how hard they try. Unless they know how of course. Just attach it and leave it. Then listen to people talking about this ingenious gimmick, and about YOU! It costs nothing to make but plays big! May 21, That sounds really great. Add your phone and name and add if they cut it off they get 5 years bad luck. Any chance of a p. I would really like to try this.

Thanks for your time. Jun 11, I think that these might be available from Fun, Inc. They are often used as a gimmick at trade shows and conventions.


A company will hire attractive models to approach attendees and affix them to their buttonhole. On the dowel or pencil is the company name and information on how to get to their hospitality suite or booth where someone will show them how to remove them. Since it’s an interesting puzzle, many leave them on and play with it.

Finally, they will make their way to the company’s location Loyd went home and returned to McCall the next day with a small stick attached to a loop of green cord.

The stick looked like a policeman’s billy club and it was slightly longer than the loop. McCall failed to fer duly impressed. Whereupon Loyd took McCall by his lapels, stuck the cord through the buttonhole and the stick in turn through the loop.

If within half an hour, you’ve gotten the buchh out, without cutting the cord, I’ll give you det dollar. If not, you owe me one. After his time was up, Loyd accepted his dollar with the words: Press,p German: Geduldsspiele der Welt, Hugendubel,p Note: The Buttonhole Killer Pencil The book contains the buttonhole puzzle.

BoxD Frankenberg, Germany Phone: Aug 29, Just for fun I knotdn to look up the patent. I think the number you gave was knote, but it has to be close because of the date.

Just in case anyone cares: I did some more research on the patent for the Magic Holetite Pencil. The patent number given in Dennis Loomis’ post from the ashely web site: The patent number is for a “Key Fastener” and has nothing to do with the puzzle. I also did some checking of various permutations of possible patent numbers, also to no avail. I emailed Jerry Slocum who said he has never found a patent issued. My conclusion is that there never was a patent issued and that someone used a false patent number to slow down would-be copycats.


If you like puzzles, do search the patents. There are some interesting ones there.

Sep 3, Jeff, Thanks for taking the time to research this and sharing your findings. Certainly the thing is being made by lots of companies today and there seems to be no problem with making them for your own use.

I suspect that you’re right about the patent “bluff. Ask Graham Putnam at Fun Incorporated. He bought the rights to Spiked Coin from Matell.

Zimmerman had created it for Matell when they were doing a series of magic tricks for regular toy stores. He paid good money for it and has sold lots of them in his “Royal” line of magic. But then the cheap rip-off started coming in from the Orient, and in practical terms he was just powerless to do anything about it. I’ve seen a small version of it blister packed and sold for 79 cents in some stores! Imagine sshley, they can make the die, do the injection molding of the two parts of the box, the ashleey, and the eight spikes or is it six?

What a world we live in! Sep 5, An amazing story about a very common item that I never, ever learned to remove.
