The Cordoba Tiny Ring Closure is part of a new series of screw-in leather closures that use a .5 inch wide tab of medium weight (5/6 oz) leather with differing styles of hardware. The Cordoba Tiny Ring uses a spring gate ring, which functions like a carabiner, opening to the inside to release one of the tabs and, in this way, allow the garment or accessory to be taken on and off easily. The Tiny Cordoba Ring Closure is ideal for light-weight knits for which a lighter, more delicate closure is needed. The Tiny Ring weighs a scant half ounce, in contrast to its larger cousin, the Cordoba Ring Closure which weighs 1.5 ounces!
