Thanks to the basic overall design, designers can easily add additional features. It brings more convenience while not affecting the primary function of the key.
To wear this tactical belt, follow these steps:
- First, you need to fasten the belt around the waist through the sponges on the waistband. When you have threaded the end through the body middle, thread up from the bottom of the buckle.
- There is still another hole on the lock, and now you need to pull the end, pass it through the other hole, and make sure the back is from above the lock.
- Simply pull at the end to tighten the belt for the best fit and comfort when you’re done.
- Finally, thread the excess belt through the sponges on the waistband. Some belts have a velcro design, so you need to glue the end.
Belt buckle frame
The rim buckle is also a relatively common type of tactical belt. You will not see too much difference from the traditional belt.
It consists of a frame and prongs. Depending on the design, the number of prongs can be one or two. The frame buckle is responsible for securing the belt. So hooks often appear on leather or synthetic leather belts.
This type of belt is also straightforward to follow:
- First of all, you also need to fasten the belt around your waist through the waistband leeches. Next, thread the pointed end up and through the bottom of the buckle. In this step, you need to make sure the quota is always open.
- To secure the belt, pull the end until the tightest fit.
- Then, you need to do is thread the prong through the fitting end to secure the belt securely. For the remaining belt, please thread the end through the retaining loop. Or you can treat it by looping the belt over the pants.
This type of buckle belt has buckles mostly made of plastic, a few made of metal. Due to its safe but straightforward attribute, you can easily find it on belts, bags, or any other item that requires a simple method of tying.
Besides, durability and ease of use are also used by the police a lot. However, the buckle we mention here is much thicker than the locks mentioned above. It’s too big for the sponge on your waistband, so you can’t get through these loops.
The lock consists of two main parts, the male part and the female part on the other end. To fix the lock securely, you need to plug the male part into the female part. The clicking sound is a sign that you have successfully operated.
