The description and photos of the item leave too much to the imagination - either that or I'm more of a dumb moron than I thought. Please realize that these buckles are not interchangeable with all belt buckles. The method of attaching, the width of the items, are not compatible with the "western style," hinge/clasp buckles that most people wear and that you are probably looking for, as I was. They utilize the.. sharp metal teeth method (likely not a belt industry standard term), like a box frame buckle. It makes a really solid hold - so solid you actually cannot remove one buckle to change it out for the other.
