First trophy style buckle.

Postby jesse.beckham » Sun Jun 07, 2015 2:15 pm

I will be making my first trophy style buckle and would like to ask to see some examples of the backs of others buckles. As far as the hardware set up and placement. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

My best hangers were bent in a short u shape with the ends flattened out I then soldered a small ring out of 3/32 wire to the buckle with the u shaped piece of 1/8 wire in place. It would swivel in the rings. In the cases I needed a solid hanger I would weld it to the buckle. Will try to add pictures.

Thanks Rod, I think I understand what you're saying. Do you prefer a swinging or solid?

If you are using a "prong" I prefer a swinging hanger because it lets that end of the buckle be as flat as possible. It has to be solid if you use a tongue.
