Cobra Buckle Disassembly Instruction

1. Locate the notches on the buckle body (circled in red) and the corresponding notches on the silver bar (circled in blue);

2. Position the silver bar as shown so that both notches on the buckle body and the silver bar overlaps;

3. Push the silver bar down and out of the buckle body.  

 

4. If the silver bar is too tight to remove by hand, use a tool to pry, paying attention not to mar the surface of the buckle body.  We have found that a table spoon / tea spoon works best.  

5. DO NOT lose the silver bar!

*Replacement parts are available for purchase.
