    Dutch Clip like buckle

    I just came across some backpacks which are using a buckle that works like a dutch clip. Here is a better description.

    I would love to get one of those buckles for a lightweight belt - anybody know if it's possible to buy buckles of that type and what they are called? "Load Locker" and "Web Catcher" don't yield any results.

    Phud Buckle!

    Leave it to the Ainglish to come up with names like that!

    I had a pack many years ago which used the same style buckle. At the time I thought it was fabulous. However more recently I got very frustrated at having to lift the webbing up and slide it down on a hook I was not able to easily see. I much prefer the side locking buckles in common use now. Maybe it's just me view of my waist is impaired. No idea. But they would not be my first choice. This in no way reflects on the dutch clips as a suspension device.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Thanks! Pity that they only have buckles for 25mm webbing. But worth a try in any case.
