We offer two main types of metal buckles with the side release design. First, you'll find out metal/plastic hybrid buckles. Each of the two pieces that make up these buckles is made from one of those materials. In each set, the male half is plastic while the female half is metal. This is important since you always want the female half to be stronger if possible. They are great for use in light to medium duty applications. This style can also be customized by choosing a bold or bright color for the female half. The male half always comes in a simple black color to provide a nice contrast.
Next, you'll find our aluminum side release buckles. They have a sleek, sophisticated look and are a stronger than our metal/plastic hybrids since both sides are solid metal. Due to their strength, these buckles are preferred for applications like seat belts and heavy duty loads where safety is key. However, you can also incorporate the slick look of aluminum by adding these side release buckles to dog collars, belts, backpacks and other accessories.
Choose from these unique options to make sure you get a side release buckle that's perfectly suited to your needs, your style and your budget.
