Fix your belt, don't toss it.

Many people will just throw out a perfectly good belt, just because it seperated from the buckle. Don't toss it, fix it.

I'm not going to bother warning you. If you can't be trusted with scissors, don't do this.

I apologize for the already cut belt, but I was making a fence at the time my belt broke and didn't think at the time to take pictures cause I was in a hurry to get back to the fence. But hopefully you'll get the idea.

The only materials you need are:
Scissors and a small flat head screwdriver
(I marked them in the picture in case you get confused)

This could also help f your belt is too long, add a few more holes, and cut some of the old part off. Move down the buckle, and you are done.

I'm sorry to hear that. If you are unable to fix it, I'd suggest trying to find a belt like the one I have. That way next time your belt breaks, you'll be able to fix it. The company that made my belt is: Timberland, if that'll help at all. I'm sure other companies make belts the same way too. Another good thing about the belt I have is that you can reverse sides. One side is black and the other is brown. The buckle just swivels around. And the way the buckle is set up, even if this belt breaks, I can always take one of the other cheaply made belts that I have in my closet (the ones that are starting to seperate already) and attach it to my good belt buckle. I hope this has been helpful in some way.
