Where can I buy the "hardware" that goes on the back of a belt buckle?

I have a homemade wooden buckle from which the back is now naked!?

My uncle's design for a mule-shoe belt buckle simply has a slightly hooked rod  protruding from the back. Hook it into a belt hole from the outside and you're done.

Should be easy to do something like that for a wooden belt buckle. Partly drive in a suitably thick nail, bend it over a bit so tension on the belt will tend to hold it in place, clip it to about 1/4 inch, optionally file the end a bit so it's smooth and less likely to scratch the belt (or anything else), done.
