I CAN’T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THESE BEAUTIFULLY SHAPED 1″ D-RINGS! The bar on this D-Ring may be removed if you need to! Should you like to remove the bar from your D-Ring connector so that you can get your strap stitched as closely to the bar as possible you may carefully try to remove the bar with the right size screwdriver OR cover the bar with fabric and use pliers to turn the rod to loosen it so that the bar will simply unscrew from the D-Ring for you and then just tighten it back onto the D Ring and VOILA! I am sure it will soon be a favorite in your hardware collection. It is available in Brushed Gold, Brushed Nickel, Rose Gold, Gunmetal, Antique Brass and Rainbow.
