Buckles are an important part of any webbing project. Plastic and metal side release buckles can be used for dog collars, belts, harnesses, backpacks, and hundreds of other projects. There are almost no webbing based projects that don't require a fastener of some kind, and buckles are almost always the right choice.
Side release buckles in particular are a great choice because of their easy, secure one-handed action. Despite the graceful design of these buckles, they are incredibly rugged and strong. Whether you are working with nylon, polyester, polypropylene, or cotton webbing, a side release buckle will keep your strap secure.
Flat side release buckles are ideal for projects where the buckle will lay on a flat surface. Contoured side release buckles are designed to fit around curved surfaces and make the perfect dog collar buckle. Plastic buckles are light, durable and strong. Metal buckles are recommended for projects that will bear a lot of weight and endure a lot of wear-and-tear.
We offer all the top buckle brands, such as YKK and National Molding, which manufacture many types of top-quality fasteners. In addition, we carry several economy buckles for low cost or low tensile strength projects.
Buckles come in sizes to fit most widths of webbing. When choosing your buckles, be sure to match the same width as your webbing. For example, if your webbing is 1.5- inches in width, you want the 1.5-inch webbing buckles.
