Breakaway Buckles

Breakaway buckles are specially designed for cats. If their collar catches on something, the cat's twisting or struggling action causes the buckle to open, freeing the cat.   
Important! The buckles below are not for use in bracelets. The buckles open under pressure and won't stay closed when used for bracelets.

Buckle Comparison-breakaway vs non-breakaway (black styles only)

Please read this important information regarding the difference between the 3/8" non-breakaway and breakaway buckles. The buckle insert on the left is the breakaway buckle. The left outside post is missing the outside "lump". This is what allows the buckle to breakaway when pulled. NEVER use this buckle with a leash. The insert on the right is the non-breakaway buckle. NEVER use this insert to make cat collars.
