Title: Systems for removably securing a display component to an accessory or item of clothing

Abstract: A system for removably securing a component to a base. The system includes a plurality of attachment means, each having a first attachment mechanism fixedly secured to the base, and a second attachment mechanisms fixedly secured to the component. Each of the first attachment mechanisms is configured to correspond to, and engage with, one of the second attachment mechanisms to securely fasten the component to the base. The plurality of first attachment mechanisms and the plurality of second attachment mechanisms are configured such that a gap is formed between the component and the base, and a void is formed between the plurality of attachment means when the attachment mechanisms are engaged, to create a leverage point directly above the void that allows the attachment mechanisms to at least partially disengage and the component to be removed from the base when a force is applied to the leverage point.
