This work is the first of a series of articles devoted to the horizontal belt buckle-hooks. These belt buckle-hooks were widely used in Eastern Europe in the 16—17th centuries in the sahajdak and saber belts. The work is based on the description and preliminary classification of a collection of forty four belt buckle-hooks from the collection of the National Museum of History of Ukraine. A brief overview of sahajdak and saber belts was also made, where the horizontal belt buckle-hooks are the main locking fastener. Analysis of archaeological finds and illustrative sources was also carried out.
