Product Questions

What is a SlideBelts brand ratchet belt?

It is a high-quality belt that allows you to freely adjust the waist size without the limitation of holes. Instead of holes, SlideBelts have multiple notches which are intricately sewn onto the inside of the belt. The buckle has an auto-locking lever that catches these notches or “teeth” and secures the belt at the desired length. This gives you over 30 precise sizing options. To release the belt, you simply lift up on the buckle frame and you slide the belt off. Measurements are visible on the underside of our belts as a guideline for waistband sizes. Thus, all SlideBelts can be trimmed to your ideal length.

What is the difference between Full Grain Leather and Top Grain Leather?

Full Grain leather is the most durable and strongest of leathers. Full Grain comes from the very top layer of the hide, just below the hair, and contains all of the tightly-packed grain. Therefore, natural marks, scrapes, and scars are occasionally visible in the leather. Also, Full Grain leather will develop a rich patina as it ages. This is more obvious with lighter belt colors. The color will acquire more dimension and beauty as you handle it. In comparison, Top Grain will not develop a patina. Top Grain leather is the second-highest quality leather you can find. It is split from the top layer of the hide and then sanded. Top Grain is more durable and stronger than Genuine, but not quite as durable as Full Grain. Also, Top Grain is slightly softer in comparison to our Full Grain leathers.

What are your buckles made of?

The base metal of our buckles is a Zinc alloy. If you want to get technical, the alloy meets the chemistry requirements of UNS-Z-33520 for a Zinc Alloy 3 (AG40A). If you don't want to look up the material data sheet for that, it's mostly Zinc (~95%), with ~3-4% Aluminum and a whole bunch of other metals making up the remainder.

Are your buckles interchangeable?

Our buckles are interchangeable (each buckle works with each leather), though we do not recommend changing buckles every single day, as this wears down on the leather much faster.

Do your buckles contain nickel?

Yes, our buckles have nickel plating.

How wide are your belt straps?

At the moment, all of our belt straps are 1-1/4" (1.25 inches or 3.2 cm) wide. This width fits comfortably in most pant loops.

What is your sizing guide?

Each belt includes instructions for cutting your belt to the correct length. On the back you will see sizes: 30", 32", 34",etc. Please cut two inches above your waist size. For example. If you are 32" you will cut at 34".

What is Custom: up to 48”?

Uncut, the leather strap is made for sizes up to a 48” waist size. Of note, our black and mocha brown genunine leather belts fit up to a 44" waist size. All of our belts are meant to be cut to fit your exact size. Cutting directions are included, and the sizing guide is embossed on the back of the leather.

My belt is too long, what do I do?

Each of our leathers is sent out full-length for a size 48" waist, with the exception of our black and mocha brown genuine leather belts. Black and mocha brown genuine leather belts fit up to a 44" waist size. All of our belts are meant to be cut down, so don't worry! A pair of kitchen scissors should be able to do the trick. There are embossed markings on the back to help show you where to make the initial cut. Your belt comes with a sizing guide explaining which marking you should cut at for a given size. If your belt is still a little long after you make your first cut, follow these steps:

Take off the buckle.
Measure 1/2" from the edge where the buckle was attached.
Cut the leather where you measured.
Optional - You can use some sewing scissors to trim any loose threads down.
Put the buckle back on.
Try the belt on.
If the belt is still too long, please repeat 1-6 again.
If you cut too much off, please see "What is your Exchange Policy?" under Orders questions.

I need a size 50”, is there any way to get that?

The full length of our leathers is 55 inches (140 cm), with the exception of our black and mocha brown genuine leather belts. Black and mocha brown genuine leather belts fit up to a 44" waist size and are 51 inches (130 cm). If you need a larger size, we unfortunately do not offer a longer leather at the moment.
