Side Release Buckle

Side release buckles are one of the most common hardware options for strapping these days. You'll see them everywhere, from dog collars to backpacks and beyond. But that doesn't mean that all of these buckles are created equally. If you want high-quality side release buckles that will stand up to regular and rugged use, check out this selection of metal side release buckles from Strapworks. We want to make sure your buckles last for a long time, which is why we recommend our metal hardware for when you want side release buckles for everyday applications. And even if you don't need your buckles to be used for especially rugged adventures, the metal option has an upgraded feel that many of our customers prefer regardless of application.

STEP 1: Choose Your Side Release Buckle Style

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.
