- Line up the stud with the hole in the button.
- All done!
What are the metal holes in jeans called?
Patented by Levi Strauss, these buttons are called rivets and they’re there to make sure your denim holds up to the wear and tear your body puts it through as you move about each day. The idea dates back to 1829, when Strauss noticed that miners were complaining about their pants not lasting through long work days.
Insert the tack into the back of the hole. Push the tack through the hole. If the hole is too large, you can make a new, smaller hole for the tack in an undamaged section of the denim as close the existing hole as possible. Then push the tack through the new hole.

Why did jeans have rivets?
If you’ve ever worn a pair of jeans you’ve probably wondered what these tiny buttons on the pockets are for. They’re rivets. The rivets held the pockets to the clothing. As miners were using them to carry nuggets, tools, and other items that were too heavy for just a seam, as the seams would rip under too much weight.
A tack button actually uses two pieces–the button itself, and the button tack. The button is what you of course see on the front of your jeans. The next time you’re putting on/taking off a pair of jeans, take a look at the back of the buttons.
Remove a Jean Button by Prying the Button Apart Instead of cutting a jean button, it’s possible to force it apart by gripping each side of the button with a pair of pliers. Use two pairs of pliers, one of a suitable size to tightly grip the button side and another to grip the rivet side.
