Quieting climbing stick buckles and snaps

Buckle & Snap Quieted with Bicycle Innertube

I really like the Leverage sticks I bought a couple years ago but never liked the noise that seemed inevitable from the metal attachment snap and the adjustable buckle. I was able to significantly reduce the noise by slipping some short pieces of bicycle innertube over them. I also added a nylon strap to hook the strap onto so I didn’t have noise from metal snapping on metal See photos below.  I liked this mod but late in the 2014 archery season I decided to get rid of the strap and buckles altogether and replace them with rope.  The rope mod is described here.
