Broken buckle? While we're happy to make repairs at our repair center, if you can't part with your gear a field repair will do the job! Finding the right buckle can be tricky - and that's why we make it easy to fix your buckles at home with our field repair kits.

First, you'll want to open a case and specify that you're looking for a buckle field repair kit, including your tent's model.

Once it arrives, your field repair kit will include a new buckle as well as a length of guy line to hold the buckle in place as well as act as the stake out loop. 1. Remove the original buckle. You can break the plastic bar that holds it onto the webbing. Do not cut the webbing!2. Press the webbing flat enough to slide it through the new buckle.
