The Fireman’s Quick Release buckle is uniquely from past times but looks very much in the present. These buckles would hold fire hoses to the tenders securely until needed, when a flick of the lever would open the buckle quickly. It can be worn either way up and is secure both ways. These are hand cast, polished and constructed in a family owned foundry in the West Midlands. The brass finish has a deep lustre that will keep for a lifetime. The bright nickel finish is hand plated in the foundry to a generous hard wearing thickness.
Each buckle is hand stitched in a double lengthwise run ensuring the leather will never split along the stitching. There are double loops in the same leather forming a secure hold on the strap.
