Replacing A Handbag Turnclasp
|Step 1||Check that the back plate is compatible with the existing front plate.|
|Step 2||We would unstitch a seam and fix the plate but you might find it easier to cut the lining. This can be very neat if executed correctly.|
|Step 3||Once you have made a neat cut inside the lining, you will probably see the patch that covers the back of the catch, peel this off.|
|Step 4||The next step is to lift the legs of the broken clasp (sometimes there are screws instead. Take the backplate off and release the broken clasp.|
|Step 4||Once the old clasp is off, offer the new one up and mark the holes required for the spikes on the front panel. If you are happy with the position, make the holes (I use a small blade) and push the new clasp on.|
|Step 4||Put the backplate on (I have pushed the spikes right through the lining and held it all in place with the back plate but its your choice) and bend the spikes over, to trap the backplate (and possibly lining) in position.|
|Step 4||Patch the backplate with a piece of material or stitch it up (I have had great results with some thin leather and double sided tape on the backplate). Finished|

Thanks so much for this. The holdall arrived yesterday and my husband is really pleased with it. Thanks again.
Nicola M., Burton on Trent
Thank you order - received yesterday - good service.
Barbour quality is good. Only negative is the hip pocket is too small to hold a wallet and use the button - no the wallet is not huge! Am moving to China so will not register but will recommend you to others if they know their sizes. Bye for now.
Simon N., Peterborough
Thank You for your email and update . Excellent customer service! I own a small business so always support an individual family business if I can. Best Wishes
Tina B., Bristol
I had to contact you to share my delight with your service. My bag fastener arrived today, as promised. I am pleased, it fits perfectly! I hoped I'd find a suitable replacement fastener. Having found your website yesterday, I ordered one that looked like the original. It's almost identical, and now I can use my bag again. I was pleased to fight back against the trend to throw away and replace with new. Simple pleasures, and all that, but I just wanted to let you know: you've made my day! Best wishes.

Hello, I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say how delighted I am with my new hat, and the wonderful service I received when ordering it. My hat arrived first class within less that 24hrs from ordering it, which I thought was exceptionally good.
Catherine H., Surrey
Dear Paul, Thank you for the fastener you supplied to me.
It works perfectly and I am so pleased that I have saved my leather bag. Your service was excellent, prompt and efficient and I will certainly order again. Regards,
Steven L., Sheffield
The clock arrived today as did the compass which I added to the order. Thanks for the prompt service.
Veronica T., Washington, Tyne & Wear
Received the new lock, fitted it to my briefcase same day and it was a simple direct replacement job, works a treat - surprisingly easy considering I bought the briefcase while on holiday in Turkey over 20 years ago! Many Thanks.
Chris S., Coventry
Wheels arrived quick and fitted a treat, thanks. Delsey said they couldn't help so pleased to have found these, hope they last.
