Unbelievable we are writing such an update again. This message though, should rather be considered a positive.
We made a last minute call to prioritize the sustainable quality above delivery speed.
During the production timeline, we were offered a choice to boost Bucqle’s sustainability by replacing our silicone brake pads by stainless steel ones. The brake pads are located between the front- and back housing of Bucqle, activated by the locking bar. When pressing the locking bar, the brake pads will secure the fit of your preference until you unlock your Bucqle. Silicone turned out to wear out after a while, whereas the stainless steel pads will last forever.
You might think that we should have discovered this at an earlier stage, that may be, but we were offered this chance last minute and decided to prioritize the durability of what we will deliver you.
The consequence. Our factory has been closed during February due to Chinese New Year. Working with new material apparently takes more time to test and will make it impossible to produce in February and again postpones the delivery till further notice.
Therefore, the load will be drop shipped in smaller batches so we deliver what we produce right away. Starting from the point we finish this development.
Our next update will contain more footage of the production of Bucqle.
No, besides the fact that in most cases your underwear will be between your body and Bucqle, Bucqle is covered by a rubber layer and has curvy edges.
No, your Bucqle won't slip off unless you pull.
No, your Bucqle can't slide open after locking your fit. This is due to the rubber studs on the inside of your Bucqle that continuously put pressure on your waistband.
No, you don't need a Bucqle for the other side too.
Bucqle pulls for 50% on the backside and 50% on the front side of your pants, meaning your pants might slightly move, which is hardly noticeable.
We advise to combine Bucqle with your right pocket, since the fold would not be that obvious. If you do not have pockets, Bucqle is made for the right side of your pants/skirts, but can be placed anywhere you like.
While your belt bulks the fabric when tightening your pants, the Bucqle neatly folds. The thicker and the more stiff your fabric is, the harder it is for Bucqle to create that neat fold. We ourselves use Bucqle on our jeans daily, however some jeans are not ideal. It is definitely not no, but neither a 100% yes :)
Bucqle can infinitely tighten the waistband of your pants and skirts up to 50mm. This means all the steps between 0 and 50 are there to offer you a true perfect fit by the mm :)
We decided to move the contribution to Europe, since the amount before paying tax is lower in EU than in most other continents. Therefore, we can apply friendly shipping to almost everyone :)
Yes we do!
From Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
We work with DHL – Deutsche Post with Track-And-Trace.
We are more than happy to have your Bucqle returned, only when the product is not working up to standards.
Within 14 days after receiving your order.
We never do refunds. When your order is broken because of us, we exchange for a new Bucqle.
