Step 1: Get An Altoid Can!

It's as simple as that. Enjoy the Altoids inside and then prepare for the surgery.

In the picture, there is my Altoids can belt buckle with my duct tape belt inside.

it was awesome hard though because i was bored and did it with a pocket knife
I made mine by cutting "Y" and inverted "Y" shapes and bent them back to prevent cuts   V
                        ^...      more or less  (I also did it that way because my attention span is too short. I just read the title and figured it out.)
oops it should look more like this

Thanks man.
How do you keep one end from falling out each time you unbuckle the belt?

Um, what do you mean?
I'm talking about the two heads of the belt that click together. How do you keep one head from falling out of the altoids can each time you unbuckle the belt? Also, I tried making an adjustable duct tape belt, and it worked. I just need to take better measurements. (If I try again) I'll post pics if it works.
This is soo sweet.!!!!!! 10/10

Hey thanks!
Ooh! I was going to make a duct tape belt anyway and I already have an empty Altoids tin lying around.

Who can name the movie that incorporates a tracking device into an altoids can utility belt? Well, if you took the buckle out of the tin, then you could put a charger into it, but i think having the altoids tin AND a separate buckle would just make it redundant...
The movie you're thinking of is called Blankman

i see you used gloves when handleing your dremel
technick29 (author)  Eddbot8 years ago
*Dramatization* It's kind of hard to take a picture while wearing gloves. Also, I don't take action pics with my camera because it's dangerous (and I'd hate to hurt my lens!) Nice icon, from halo 2 if I'm correct?
i wasn't being critical, and yes it's from halo 2, actually Eddbot, is my gamertag

I could see adding some flashing leds to this...
technick29 (author)  Weissensteinburg8 years ago
That I will have to do sometime. Lemme know if you do it yourself, and post some pics! Thanks.

this took me 5 minutes to make. it probably took longer to eat all the altoids

If you put a 5v USB charger in there it would be cooler, if thats possible

It's kind of cramped in there as it is, so I'm not sure it would be possible. Let me know if you end up doing that, it'd be awesome.
