How Do You Put a Button on a Fishing Pole?

Putting a button on a fishing pole can be an essential step in making sure that your rod is secure while fishing. A button helps to keep the rod in place, preventing it from slipping out of your hands or getting tangled up with other items. It also adds a bit of style to the pole, making it look more attractive.

The first step in putting a button on a fishing pole is to make sure that you have the right materials. You will need some type of adhesive, such as super glue or epoxy, as well as a button and some wire or thread. Once you have these items gathered, you can begin the process of attaching the button to your pole.

The next step is to prepare the area where you will be attaching the button. Make sure that it is clean and dry before beginning, as any dirt or moisture could affect how well the adhesive holds.

Once you have prepped the area, you can begin applying the adhesive. If using super glue, be sure not to get any on your hands as it could cause skin irritation. For epoxy, mix equal parts of both components and apply it directly to the area where you want to attach the button.

Once your adhesive has been applied, place your button on top of it and carefully press down until it is secure. Be sure not to over-tighten or you could damage the rod’s finish. After this step is complete, use either wire or thread to tie off and secure the button in place.

Finally, allow enough time for your adhesive and threading to fully dry before using your rod again. This will ensure that everything stays securely in place while fishing.


Putting a button on a fishing pole is an easy process that requires only some basic materials and tools. By following these steps – preparing the area for attachment, applying adhesive, placing and securing the button – anyone can add a stylish touch to their rod without too much effort!
