    Steve, that is quite kind and I might reach out, but I feel I will need an actually supplier. I am surprised that each buckle comes with one. If you look at BertMcG's post, it is the wee metal bar. I have been sending out emails to various companies, but no one seems to know. This is really quite odd.

    Again, I will keep you in mind should all fail.

    Cheers!

    Bruce, I am not seeking a belt keeper. Rather the part at end opposite the buckle.

    This is a belt keeper:

    Look at BertMcG's post. The metal part is what I am seeking.

    The bail that is being asked about is the metal part where you see the pencil pointing.

    Each belt comes with one and it is the part that hooks into the buckle.

    And if you buy a buckle in a presentation box you may be surprised to find a spare bail taped to the back.

    But, incredibly difficult to find a supplier. Somewhere is a firm who makes these wee bails. No one knows. I've contacted numerous companies this week and am truly surprised that no one know.

    Cheers!

    I might have found a supplier. In the event he is willing, I will make a wee post. He does want 6£ per in either nickel, antique silver or gold plated. Again, not sure if this is a one off or the chance for more.

    I did find this, which could do in a pinch:

    Contact Art Pewter as the buckle with the spare bail in my photo is from them.
