How to Install a Buckle

Whether it’s a backpack strap, a crossbody strap, or even a belt, learning how to add a buckle to a leather strap gives you more options for adjustability and custom fit. In this video, Ellie will show you how to thread a 3/4” center bar buckle onto a 3/4” leather strap using tubular rivets. This is the same buckle method that is used in our Maywood Totepack and Slabtown Backpack patterns! The extra-strength tubular rivets helps ensure that your strap will hold up to lots of wear and tear.
