V-Buckles by FIDLOCK™

The V-buckle was developed for use in situations where security is key and for straps with a width of 25 mm and 40 mm. It opens by tilting the stainless steel flap. The greater the weight bearing against it, the more force is required to open it. This means it is self-securing.

Available in 1” and 1.5" sizes


Tactical style collars used by police dogs, IPO sport, and other intense sporting activities selectively use this style of buckle because of it’s sheer strength, durability, and fail proof nature. Along with these qualities, this buckle is VERY expensive and is definitely a long term investment.

The AustriAlpin brand carries the strongest commercially tested metal buckle in the world, which is why to us the price is worth it. The safety and longevity these buckles provide are unmatched, and no amount of pulling or tension from a dog will break them. All COBRA® products are tested and certified to exceed Mil Spec guidelines for dust/sand/salt water as well as all applicable CE, EN, CSA, ANSI, and NFPA standards for fall-protection and personal safety. This is the only buckle we recommend for a dog who is a heavy puller, who participates in heavy duty/protection sports, and for high flight risk dogs who need the guarantee this buckle will hold under every circumstance.
