Emergency Belt




Introduction: Emergency Belt

I recently lost 20 lbs and counting.

Now the unfortunate thing is all of my clothing now don't fit. So belts where my best friend for thee past 4 weeks. I have been stabbing new holes in my belt ever 2 weeks till tragedy struck!

My belt broke!

Here it's is Christmas eve and I'm on my way to my my parents house with pants that will hit my ankles within 3 steps.

My options are: 1.) Go shopping on Christmas eve (blahhh) or 2.) improvise!

I choose improvise, The Instructables way!

(At my parents house wrighting this. The belt is so far undetcecable, comfortable and a success!)

Step 1: Frantically Looking


Wire is perfect!

This is speaker wire from a past project.

The insolation will create friction and hold perfectly agenst it's self!

Step 2: Measure and Cut

Measure between two belt loops and leave plenty not slack...

Yeah, I'm using scissors to cut wire! Sue me!

I was in a rush!

Step 3: The Slip

Slip wire threw 2 belt loops.

Step 4: Tie

Tie a simple knot.

Step 5: Cut

Cut the wire...

Yes, again I'm using scissors to cut with cause I was rushing out of the house!

Step 6: Ready to Go

Just to get my shoes on and I'm on my way to my parents house for Christmas eve!
