How to Remove a Belt Buckle

Save

Changing a belt buckle takes a few minutes, but can have a major impact on your look. To change a worn belt buckle or replace a generic buckle with something stylish, you'll need to remove the old buckle and put the new one in its place. When swapping out a belt buckle, choose something that's sized to the belt; a slim leather belt can't pull off an oversized buckle, but a wide belt can.

  • Lay your belt on a flat surface and turn it over so the inside faces you. Look for a couple snaps and a leather end-piece.

  • Pull up on the leather end-piece to undo the snaps.

  • Slide off the belt buckle. Notice the crease in the leather from the folded end; this will hold your new buckle in place.

  • Slide a new belt buckle onto the leather, folding over the leather end-piece. Reseal the snaps to secure your new belt buckle.

Tips & Warnings

  • Not all belts have removable buckles. If your belt is sewn or riveted into place, you cannot change the buckle.
