English term or phrase: clutch back
A type of earring mechanism
Unlike the friction back, a ***clutch back*** cannot gradually loosen with wear, and under normal circumstances will not slide off if the earring is pulled because the post used has a small groove towards the end.
To remove the earring, squeeze the two buttons that release the ***clutch back***.
