Something gets "cut" in there but it's not designed to deal with string.

If by "button" you mean one of those things that passes through a slit in a garment, then no, it's not one of those, but you're in the right ballpark.

Yeah it looks like one side of those metal clasping buttons.
Can you be a little more precise on this? Maybe your terminology for it is different from mine.

Thumb wheel
No, not a thumb wheel.

drunkenmigu

Thanks for clarifying. I was trying to wait for an update before I replied. I know there are button clasps that don't look like snaps at all. I call these things snaps, or button snaps. Snap fastener is probably a more correct term. Your turn!

Since nobody has posted I took a random shot. This is a picture of a household thing. It's not a very common household item though, not in the States at least.
