To Unbúckle. v.a. To loose from buckles.
We have been down together in my sleep,
Unbuckling helms; fisting each other's throat,
And wak'd half dead with nothing. Shakesp. Coriolanus.
He that unbuckles this, till we do please
To doff't for our purpose, shall hear a storm. Shakesp.
His starry helm unbuckled, shew'd him prime
In manhood, where youth ended. Milton's Par. Lost.
All unbuckling the rich mail they wore,
Laid their bright arms along the sable shore. Pope.
