AbstractThe buckle assembly includes a cover member, a base member, a latch member movably supported by the base member, and latch member operating means. The latch member is slidable in a direction normal to a tongue inserting direction between a tongue latching position and a tongue unlatching position, and the latch member operating means comprises a push button slidable in a direction parallel to the tongue inserting direction and a lever member rotatable about a axis normal to both of the tongue inserting and latch member sliding directions, so that a sliding movement of the push button may cause a movement of the latch member from the tongue latching position to tongue unlatching position, through a rotational movement of the lever member.
