Our side-release buckles are constructed from polycarbonate plastic (PC).
PC is an extremely strong, lightweight, and stable plastic material that is used
widely from bullet-proof windows, to compact discs and computers, to greenhouse
walls, to automobile headlamps. Unlike other plastic materials, PC is a heat-resistant
and shatterproof plastic. For these reasons, we commissioned our side-release buckles
be constructed from this incredibly strong material.
Unlike most all of our competitors, our side-release buckles all come with a measured
breaking strength. It may be a surprise to you, but dogs are able to apply 2x their
body weight on the buckle clasp of their collar. With this in mind, our side-release
buckles hold to the below strengths:
- 5/8” - 85 lbs.
- 3/4” - 150 lbs.
- 1” - 150 lbs.
- 1 1/4” - 165 lbs.

How to Measure
Measure around the neck, close to the shoulders—as shown in the
drawing. Collar should be snug, yet comfortable. You should be able to
put two fingers between the collar and your dog.
