How to Remove a Belt Buckle

Updated February 21, 2017

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.

  1. 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.

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

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

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

  5. Tip

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