Metal square buckle

Do anyone know where to buy the square metal buckles that Mayflower uses in their swiftkit? Or something similar. Needs 25mm replacement sqaure rings.

I'm assuming you want 25mm?  PM sent.

I strayed outside of my ITW realm and purchased some of these, but found they were too easily flexed. With a medium amount of force, they can be popped off of webbing.

You might also consider using a metal G Hook for this application, these are sewed solid on one end and adjustable on the other.
I get mine from Gerald Schwartz Inc.

Ghook will not work for the application that we need these buckles for. Sidenote; We have tested the Ghooks on chestrigs made for SOF and they have a tendency to fall out of the webbing if there is no load on them.

We talked with Martin Kiel from Tacticaltrim and he will get us the buckles. We buy 95% of all our material from tacticaltrim. As our Company is growing it is just easier to contact one Company then having to talk with 10-15 Companies in US.

I never tested ghooks myself but I was afraid it would detach rather easily as you say :/ About Tactical Trim, do you buy your stuff at the online shop price? Cause their rates is a reason I bought directly in the US actually.

The short answer is no. Homepage prices are for DIY people that buy small quantities.

ITW G-Hooks:    Take 3" -4" long by 3/4" wide strip of Velcro OneWrap, and wrap it around the G-Hook after it has been  hooked on the desired strap or PALS loop.   KISS solution to the problem.  The OneWrap doesn't really have to support any of the weight or stress, it just has to  prevent the hook from falling out when under slack conditions.

  I've tried to think  of a way to attach the OneWrap strip to the G-Hook itself or the strap that is feed thru the buckle.

Another option is to just bend the clip slightly more down on tue open end.  I saw this on another forum and it seemed to work.

If you're outside the US Woojin Plastics have something similar called a Smoothy split loop or something. Minimum 1000 but very cheap & they use acetal. Very good quality stuff & great variety. I still wouldn't use these in a loaded position but they work very well as strap guides since you don't have to remove any buckles & unreeve straps to remove the compression strap.
