While both spring and cam buckles are known for their dependability, there are a few key differences between the two that you should know before making your purchase. Spring buckles, which are also known as tourniquet buckles and alligator clips, are for light to medium duty, non-critical applications. They feature a unique design that allows for fast and easy cinching of any strap. They are used extensively by the military and are popular in surplus stores. When your order one of our nickel-plated spring buckles, you'll get a range of size choices that correspond to the webbing width.
Cam buckles, on the other hand, are for medium to heavy duty and critical applications. They have superior grip and will not slip when used within their weight testing; details for the maximum weight for these buckles can be found on individual product pages. At Strapworks, our cam buckles come in a range of sizes as well as various styles, such as metal cams, mini cams, motorcycle cams and stainless steel cams.
