This is the first in a series of short-&-sweet posts discussing the variety and applicable use of Paracord related hardware out there. This first post is going to be dedicated specifically to side release buckles used for Paracord Bracelets.
When it comes to side release buckles, the most popular sizes used for Paracord Bracelets are 3/8", 1/2" and 5/8".
|3/8" Curved Plastic Side Release Buckles|
|1/2" Curved Plastic Side Release Buckles|
1/2" buckles are a nice medium size for the average width weaves, like the Blaze Bar, Feather Bar or Tire Tread.
|5/8" Curved Plastic Side Release Buckles|
5/8" buckles are often used for men’s bracelets and wider paracord weaves, like the Conquistador or King Cobra.
|5/8" Plastic Side Release Whistle Buckle|
These buckles come in many different shapes, styles, colors, and materials. They can be curved or straight, plastic or metal, with or without whistles & adjuster bars, translucent or opaque. If you can think of it, I’m sure it’s out there.

Our next post will be focusing on another Paracord Bracelet connector: the shackle. Stay tuned!
