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. Both inserts use the same female.
