Got one of our Pro-Series Messenger Bags and found that you can no longer shorten the length of your main shoulder strap webbing? Chances are the buckle has come undone. Watch as Dave shows you how to fix! It is easy.

00:22 – How to fix an “undone” sliploc buckle

One of the key things with our Pro-Series messenger bags (the Sindrome and Elephantitus) is that we have a little slip lock buckle on the shoulder strap to stop the webbing from dangling. This buckle can be tightened to get excess webbing out of the way. Occasionally, you may loosen this slip lock buckle so much that it comes completely undone and it can be confusing as heck trying to figure out why you can’t tighten it up.

This is really easy to fix. All you need to do is push the buckle down as low as it goes, and start pulling the webbing through the buckle. That will create a loop. Continue this by pushing the webbing through the other side of the buckle to create a second loop. That becomes your adjustable loop to stop the 50mm seatbelt webbing from dangling and getting in the way. (Have a look at the demonstration in the video on this page.)

We hope this information helps! If you have any other questions about the slip lock buckle or our Pro-Series bags, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
