Laws of Carrying: Clothing & Jewelry
17. [The following laws apply when] a garment has two straps or laces
which are tied to close it, or when it is closed using two clasps, and one
of them is torn off. Although the one that remains on the garment is not
significant (because its not useable), nevertheless, if one intends to mend
the other one, the one that remains is not considered simply an extension
of the garment, rather, it is like a "masa" (an object being carried), and
it is forbidden to wear the garment out into the public domain on Shabbos.
If, however, one does not intend to mend the broken piece, the one strap or
clasp that remains is not considered a significant [independent] entity,
but rather an extension of the garment. Hence, one may wear the garment
out into the public domain.
If the remaining strap or clasp is valuable, like a silk strap or a silver
clasp, it is not considered insignificant (and thus an extension of the
garment) even when one does not intend to mend the broken one. Hence, one
may not wear the garment out into the public domain on Shabbos.
