For the sewing-impaired, a loose button can be a nightmare without the 'tic' -- a device that fixes your button without sewing. The tic is an instant shirt button fastener that mends your clothes instantly. Instead of sewing your button back on, the tic works like a stapler to efficiently affix your button back onto your shirt.

Created by a Swedish design firm, the button fastener comes in a minimalistic box. The matchbook-like packaging opens to reveal four clips that can be used to fix your buttons. Two small hooks go under the shirt while the top half of the tic swings over to secure the button between another set of hooks.

The tic was designed to be a permanent solution to loose buttons. Washing, dry cleaning and drying will not affect it in the slightest.
