M-Series Instructions

Depending on your waist size and the belt selected your new band might be longer than you'd like.  But don't worry- it's easy to trim to fit.  Here's how:

  1. Unwrap the Velcro tail strap from your new belt and set aside (we'll use it later).
  2. Slide the two halves of the belt past one another to open.
  3. Try your belt on for size: Pull the strap through the buckle adjuster until it is comfortable length and (in the case of elastic belts) stiffness.
    • For initial adjustment, it may be easier to try the belt on inside-out (with inside magnet and tail strap facing away from the wearer)- it's just easier to make big changes this way.
  4. Remove the belt and trim the end 6 to 8 inches from the buckle. 
    • Adding a second diagonal cut not only looks good but it makes threading the webbing through the buckle easier should you ever need to.
  5. Use a match or lighter to melt the cut ends and prevent fraying.  If you need adult supervision, please be sure to ask for it.
    • Lighter colors can collect soot from candles and matches, so a lighter is usually a better choice for those.
  6. Wrap that tail strap snugly around the loose end, scratchy side in.  Take your time to line up the edges to minimize snagging.
