Buckle-Down Inc. was founded nearly 30 years ago in a Southern California college dorm room. Started by a college kid scouring an automobile junkyard for parts to keep his ride running, the crazy idea to make fashion belts out of recycled seatbelt buckles was born.
From those humble beginnings, Buckle-Down has grown into a leader in licensed fashion accessories for people and pets. From that first fun and unique 'SeatBelt Buckle Belt', Buckle-Down has expanded, innovated, and invented a full line of cutting-edge products. Trademark SeatBelt Buckle Belts, Patented SeatBelt Buckle Keychains, Patented SeatBelt Buckle Dog Collars, and Patented SeatBelt Buckle Bags, as well as Hats, Wallets, Guitar Straps, Lanyards, Suspenders, Throw Pillows and more are still manufactured here in the USA.
Buckle-Down partners with A-List Licensors such as Disney, Marvel, Warner Bros. and Ford to manufacture fashion, pet, music and, automotive products that scream 'fun' while representing the world’s most recognizable brands. The combination of creative and original products with licensed art has made Buckle-Down a mainstay of popular culture.
