    One side is easily converted to a standard strap springbar, but at the expense of the dive extension. The other is a rivet, or some closed fastener, visible in the last picture in the link above. I don't know that it can't be done, but it's not a straight swap like the large and small rubber strap buckles are.

    I have actually done a pair for the sinn clasp in ballistic nylon and vintage canvas. The project didn't turn out great considering 4mm of fabric material is very rigid.
    Leather is defiantly the way to go and will work fine as long as you rely on an experienced maker.

    You will need Very precise length measurements from hole to hole. Be sure to make your strap maker aware it's for a Sinn clasp. I'm currently out of commission till July but can recommend several lesser known but very skilled strap makers. I have seen a few Maddog leather straps for the sinn clasp.

    I apologize, you want this for the bracelets clasp! Not gonna work but We may could work something out for my sinn rubber clasp. Im willing to part with it as I intend to keep my sinn defiantly and have little desire to use the clasp.
