R782 Mark I Flyback

R782 Flyback mechanical belt buckle

The R782 “Flyback”, named for its semi-automatic deployment mechanism, allows the wearer to effortlessly “charge” the buckle to the active-wear position and with one click, releasing the de-cock trigger lock, to send it thrusting back to the relaxed position — an expansion range of 40mm within two positions.

The principle upon which the R782 functions is tension. With one smooth movement, the charging lever transports the fixed ardillon vertically “over the axis”, from the relaxed position to the active wear position. The buckle calibre can be secured in this position by activating the trigger lock.

Once released, however, all that is needed is a simple nudge to kick the charging lever back to a comfortable relaxed position. The rapid speed at which this action is performed has inspired its name: “fly back”.
