Has anyone tried a SlideBelt? It's a belt with no buckle holes and works with a ratcheting mechanism that kind of reminds me of a ratcheting clasp on a watch bracelet.

The prices really aren't bad for a leather belt.

I'm thinking about trying one, but thought I would see if anyone has tried them.

Reminds me of my webbed Boy Scout belts. Slide n' lock. I've worn Croton (yes... THAT Croton) belts with a similar mechanism.

I have had several over the past couple decades or so. They work fine. Sometimes they slip if not secured well.

Yeah, but adjustments on the fly would be easy while stuffing Pizza! :smile:

As long as they don't slip too much. That could be dangerous! :wow:

FYI, when your waist line is smaller than your butt, your pants stay up.

I've never used them before, but they look like great "buffet belts."

They look good. But I do not like the fact that there is only one length and it would require trimming as to not have such an annoying length left over after putting the belt on.
I just buy my belts at Red Wing as they are made in the USA and use a high quality leather. I have not found anything near the quality of my Red Wing belts.

I hear you.
I haven't tried it yet but I don't think the cutting should be a big deal since it gets hidden (the cut end is attached to the buckle).
