Easily the nice ladderlocks
The Pin Ladder Lock weighs in at 5.8 grams. This CNC machined aluminum buckle is lighter than many plastic buckles but is seriously durable. Unlike plastic, it doesn’t get brittle in the cold, and we think it’s easier on the eyes as well.
Available in two sizes to suit either 3/4″ (19mm) or 1″ (25mm) webbing.
One notable feature of this buckle is that you can retrofit it to an existing bag without doing any sewing. The buckles are supplied with the pins separate, using a bench-vise or the Knipex Plier Wrench (one of our favorite tools) you can press the pins into place through webbing loops on an existing bag.
