Abstract A first hooking face and a second hooking face which are hooking end faces of an engaging portion of a plug member releasably engage a first engaging face which is a top wall end face of an opening of a socket member and a second engaging face which is a side wall end face thereof respectively, so that an engaging area increases. The side release buckle, therefore, ensures a secure and strong engagement between the plug member and the socket member and is never released easily even when an unexpected external force is applied to a side portion of the engaging portion of the plug member.
