No need to rethread the straps. The buckle is actually a quick release, but a different style then I've used before. I found out accidentally when I tried to unthread the straps. Just pull up on the bottom tab of the buckle and you'll hear a "pop". Then push it backward and it releases and pops off from the buckle frame. To re-buckle, just insert the buckle tab through the back of the buckle frame and push it down. You'll hear it "pop" back into place. It's actually a pretty nice design and less bulky than the typical quick release buckle.
