When he got home, it took him a long time to get rid of the cocklebur from his pants and from the hound, and the little prickly things stick especially well to dogs.

Xanthium caught Mistrao's attention, he carefully observed the surface of the cocklebur, and got an interesting discovery: under the microscope, he found that the small spines on the cocklebur were not straight, but were like small thorns. hook. It turned out that it was these little hooks that caught the fibers of the pants and the hair of the dog. He thought, if it imitated the structure of Xanthium, wouldn't it be possible to make a new convenient and reliable buckle? Its function is similar to buttons and zippers. This idea stimulated his desire to invent and create. After half a year of experimentation, he created a new type of buckle. The cloth A was covered with thorns like cocklebur, and there were many hooks woven. There are many small balls woven on it, just stick the two pieces of cloth lightly to each other to stick together. This is the first velcro frontal tape, whose patent was registered in Switzerland in 1951.
