    I'd say try it. I've seen photos of folks using it but it often looks like they've removed the core. Since it's not part of the support structure, you shouldn't really have any safety issues.

    You might be right but the shipping for even an order of 4 buckles is $10 from OnRope1 so there could be a chance to save everybody some money. We'll see what response I get from them.
