How to attach the buckle and chape to a leather belt

The brass buckle has integrated rivets / shanks on the back. To attach the belt and the chape to a leather belt, you will need:

Punch holes into the leather on an appropriate position. The diameter of the holes must be approximately equal to the diameter of the rivet shanks on the back of the buckle. Put the buckle on the leather belt and poke the shafts through the leather. Place the washers on the rivets / shanks and shorten them so that they stick-out about 2-3mm. Now hammer the shaft ends. Do not lay the buckle on any hard material. Optimal is leather, soft wood or a thick solid fabric. So you will prevent damaging the front of the buvkle. It is better to hammer with less force, but with more strokes. With hammering, the shaft ends become thicker – kind of hats are formed there so that the washers can no longer be removed from the shafts. The buckle is now fixed on the leather.

Similarly, you attach the chape, but here the rivets are not part of the brass casting. You will therefore need suitable rivets and washers, which are not included.
