Braided Nylon Web
For over 30 years, this has been a
great staple in belts. They fit almost everybody. Hot knot the ends, or
let the ends be natural. Either way is good.

you are looking for a kids belt, or teen's belt, or adult belt, These are
soft to wear and easily hold your favorite buckle. Just stick the
buckle pin through the nearest hole. You will want several colors once you
get the first one. Match your shirts, your boots, your trucks, or your
horse's mane. (We have found these braided belts to be advantageous for
those who suffer from diabetes and other disorders where swelling is an
issue. The belts will hold up your pants, yet give with you as you move
your body. Sometimes people call them diabetic belts.
shipping charges on two belts are about the same as shipping on one. Girls
and boys, teens and adults all really like these braided western belts. (Grandma Senn
used to say, "You can't buy a birthday present for just one
sibling... Younger children each deserve a prize on each birthday!)
sizing your belt, take a tape measure and measure around your
wearer's body, at the
place you want to wear it, over the pants. This is easy. If you do not have a soft measuring tape, use a
string, then measure that string. If in doubt, get these
"parachute cord" belts long. To shorten, take the Chicago
screw out of the belt. Pull the buckle you want to wear down the belt
until the belt is as short as needed. Refasten the Chicago screw. (You
can use an ink pen cap, or the pointed end of a caulking tube, to
separate the braids long enough to work the Chicago screw parts into
that braid.) Then use a lighter to cut (burn) off any excess at least 1
inch past the Chicago screw, at the buckle end, if necessary.
Burn the nylon and it will all bind together. If you do
not have a ruler handy, put the belt around your waist and tie the end
like you like. Move your buckle back a bit and refasten the Chicago
screws. Figure how much you want to shorten, if any, then cut it
off the buckle end. (I like to use the pointed end of a pencil to help temporarily
separate the braids to get the Chicago screws in easily.)
all of these belts will allow you to interchange buckles.

the back with silver letters. A lot of people will use just one initial on
the drop of the "Hot Knot". Just separate the braids and
screw the screws in place. If I am going to be rough, I like to put
another backing of denim or thin leather on the inside of my braided belt
to secure it better. (Call us if you need more instruction. Dress belts do
not need the extra re-enforcement.)
or Initials can be applied using Silver letters. Silver
letters are approximately 1 inch tall and are $10.00 per letter
installed. They attach easily with 3 to 4 screws on the back of the
initial. (Letter i has 2 screws). Work them through the braids
HINT: With any screw used
for belts, you can put a dab of clear fingernail polish on the screw, to
keep it from backing loose, once tightened and dry.
