Paracord bracelet buckles come in many different shapes, sizes and colors. Many are made of plastic, others of various types of metal, and some such as the whistle buckle have a useful function of their own. This article is about the most commonly used types of paracord bracelet buckles so that you can choose your favorites when you buy a paracord bracelet.
The most popular sizes of paracord bracelet buckes are 3/8″ and 5/8″, to match the size of the paracord bracelet. Other sizes can be used to fit the different types of paracord bracelet weave patterns.
If you have a fire starter paracord bracelet, a fishing bracelet or a standard cobra weave bracelet, there are buckles to fit every style of paracord bracelet that you can find.
Here are a few images of paracord bracelet buckes that will help you identify the most common types.
A popular approach to buckles is to purchase those that you can put your logo or insignia on. This appeals to sports fans; I’ve seen the NFL team logos on paracord bracelet buckles. Other symbols and logos are not hard to find.
There you have it — the most popular paracord bracelet buckles around. Of course some come without buckles and use a tie-knot type of approach, but I myself prefer buckles. How about you?
I also prefer a more functional button. The whistle buckle is a great idea, but one I have yet to see is a small compass or one that opens into a pair of tiny pliers. Innovator’s alert: Make more functional paracord bracelet buckles!
