Metal Buckles??? on 01/09/2012 03:25:47 MST Print View

Hi everyone,

Can anybody point me in the direction for where I may be able to buy buckles like this one?

I been searching for weeks and have had no luck.

Thanks

You can buy those exact buckles here http://www.alpkit.com/shop/cart.php?target=product&product_id=16271&category_id=265, they are currently out of stock though, it might be worth emailing them and asking when they expect to be back in stock.

Thanks Jonathan,

Yeah I know you can get them form that website but I need unbranded ones and lots of them.

Thanks for the suggestions though.

Hi Gareth,

It looks similar to the buckles Metolius uses on their crashpads and other gear. Example here
If Alpkit aren't willing to tell you their source, perhaps Metolius might?

A random google search using crashpad buckle turned this up:
http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/477520420/Crash_pad_buckle.html

No connections or prior experiences with them myself. Standard cautions apply.

Best of luck with your project!

ITW also makes something like this for 1" webbing, they're called "G-Hooks". You may be able to find those in larger quantities.
