- Dec 28, 2011Uh, buckles are stitched onto Freeloaders. That's interesting that XC sells replacement buckles. I wonder how they expect customers to attach the buckles. I'd have to get a sewing awl and appropriate heavy-duty nylon thread. So, for $8.00 plus the cost of a sewing awl I can adapt my Freeloaders to their arbitrary change?
