    Sorry for the delay.

    Did a re/re of the yellow tlt 5, 6 or 7 buckle I have kickin' around.

    When not under tension, the buckle knob slid into the hole but once normal buckling action was performed, it shortened the reach and did not fit. Didn't experiment any further to see if some extra spacer material wedged into the loose play areas could mitigate the issue though. Also, I suspect it was a high wear buckle so probably had more fore/aft component wear/play than a new unit would exhibit.

    Could potentially see it working if you redrilled the attachment holes in rear cuff a few mm's rearward? Bigger project and could potentially require some reinforcement of that area to bolster weakened 'swiss cheesed' buckle mounting area?

    Really appreciate the tests. Major bummer that this didn't work. Looks like my boots are toast then.

    Hey, I wouldn't necessarily throw out the baby with the bathwater just yet. Thought about it a bit more...maybe an effective mod would be redrill holes over a few mm's, then fill existing holes with a bit of fiberglass, sand/grind it smooth. Forgot, you're in Vulcans and that carbon in the cuff is is pretty tough stuff based my my experience drilling holes and cutting pieces off...so maybe just a bit of fiberglass is all you need?
