1. twist the wires so they won't fray
2. open the plug by unscrewing the screws
3. insert the wires into the ground, positive and neutral ( the plug should have a little diagram or arrows)
4. Tighten all screws firmly
5. close the plug and close firmly the plug with the two screws

Step 3: Cut to approximative length and attach female plug

1. cut the wire to the approximative length ( might take more than once to get the right length for you )
2. repeat steps 2 but don't forget to put the cap before attaching plug
3. tighten screws with wire inside
4. close the plug and tighten screw ( theres a notch on the cover and a ridge on the plug so the screw holes line up)

Step 4: Final product

this might not fit with all jeans, it just fits thought the belt holes in my jeans.

if its to long cut it a bit shorter and repeat step 3

if its to short ( that would suck ) restart if desired.

You can also get twist lock cord ends to use instead of the regular push in ends. That way the belt won't pop open under pressure.

One time I was late for work, and managed to run out of the house without a belt. When I got to work I cut a length of cat5 cable and ran it through my belt loops, then just tied the ends together. Worked well enough for the day. I had always planned to put connectors on the ends and use a female-female adapter or put a male connector on one end and a female on the other (much like this instructable) to make a cool geeky belt, but I never got around to it.

i used duct tape last week.... i didn't make an entire belt out of it though, i just tightened the first loop on either side of the zipper. worked great, just cut it off when i got home.

lol nice belt, just isnt much of an "extension" when you're trying to use it. Maybe theres better ways to make it actually an extension? cool instructable though.

make some suspenders and you'll get a longer cord ;)

please do us a favor and go to an airport with a camcorder and pass through their metal detector, I would love to see the TSA reaction.

that would be awsome

and you can still use it as an extension cord, though not a long one since you don't look fat.
