    Hello,

    I am looking to make a belt (I think with King Cobra weave) and want to do it so that I can change belt buckles. Has anyone done this or have any ideas? So far only thinking along the lines of making it so that I can fold one end over around the buckles bar with a couple snaps. This will be my first project.

    Thanks!

    Snaps are OK if you have the tools to install them, but when I make leather belts, I always use Chicago Screws. I find them easier to use than snaps.

    If you go this route, make sure you put a drop of blue lock tight on the threads when doing final assembly.

    I would go with chicago screws too. You can find some awesome ones online or leather places.
