Threading a 3-Slot Quick-Release Belt Buckle

For harness and weight belt applications, we recommend only using a three-slot metal buckle with a pinned hinge mechanism that is riveted. We also suggest using a design that has a positive detent on the closure. The webbing should be woven through all three slots and then back upon itself through the wider end slot. Weave S/S Belt Buckle

Starting from the front of the metal buckle, thread the left waist strap through the larger end slot of the buckle. If using the buckle on backplate harness, position the buckle approximately { 18 in | 45.7 cm } of webbing length from the plate left waist slot. Then thread the webbing from the back through the center slot and through the front of the inner most slot. Finally, thread the webbing through the back of the larger end slot so there are two thicknesses of webbing through one slot and pull the weave tight.

To easily use your buckle: lift the tang to 90° angle in relation to the base of the buckle, then touch the free end of the webbing to the tip of tang and slide the webbing down the tang and into the slot. Pull the webbing through the buckle and push down on the tang until you feel the detent engage for a secure closure.
