Straps For Deployant Question

Post by mattcantwin » Tue Apr 30, 2019 12:21 pm

Some straps are described as designed for deployant use.

What is in the design of the strap that prohibits use with a standard buckle if the tail end resembles a typical strap?

A deployant strap does not have a hole for the tounge of the buckle.

IME, straps designed for deployants generally have a thinner “tail” side.

Measurements proportions may also differ between the two sides of the strap depending on the type of deployant (single, butterfly, or reverse like IWC).

That being said, I have several deployant buckles that I wear.....
And I don't own a single deployant strap.

look at the omega strap and deployant on your po, then compare that to a regular tang buckle strap on your sinn u1
