Introduction: NES Belt - DIY Version

This is the DIY version of the NES Controller Belt buckle. Its very easy to do and looks really awesome when its done.

Step 1: Materials

1. NES Controller
2. Scissors
3. Liquid Nails
4. 2 90degree Metal Corner Brackets
5. 1 1" screw
6. Plyers
7. Metal Hanger
8. Hammer
9. Soldering Iron and Solder
10. Belt buckle compatible belt.

Step 2: Remove Cord From NES Controller

Take a screwdriver and open up the NES Controller.
Use scissors to cut the cord out of it from where it connects to circuit board.

Step 3: Cut the Bottom Section Off of the Hanger

Take plyers and make it look like this, by cutting off the bottom section.

Step 4: Use Plyers to Bend the Cut Section Into a Square

Bend it like this. Make one side smaller if needed to fit belt right.
Make it on average 1 1/2" On each side, but belts are different. Make it fit yours.

Step 5: Use Soldering Iron and Solder to Make the Ends of the Wire Connected.

Make sure you precariously perch your soldering iron to provoke misfortune. But on the other hand.. use the solder on an acceptable heat, and just hold the wire and solder the ends. Use gloves if needed, metal gets very hot.

Step 6: Find a Screw About 1 Inch Long.

Find a screw about 1 inch long.. who woulda though.

Step 7: Use Drill to Drill Hole and Insert Screw.

Use a drill to drill a hole the size of the screw. Take a pair of plyers and break off the head of the screw and then thread it into the hole using the plyers.

Step 8: Get 2 Corner Brackets (90 Degree Pieces of Metal With a Screw/bolt Hole on Each Side).

Get 2 brackets. Take a hammer and flatten these down to make the space in the middle where it was bent at originally thick enough to fit the wire in.

Step 9: Put the 2 Flattened Brackets on the NES With the Wire Underneathe

Put the 2 flattened brackets on the NES with the wire underneathe, and put Liquid Nail underneath it to keep it there, as screws don't grab well in the circuit boards and stuff inside.

Step 10: Wait for It to Dry.

Chill around.. listen to some great tunes.
PLAYLIST OF CHOICE:
1. Senses Fail
2. Underoath
3. Rammstein
4. The Pillows
5. Rise Against

Yeah.. jam out dawg. You earned it.

Step 11: Try It on and Look Hott.

Walk around the town, and have a good time. Have fun with your new...

NES Controller DIY EDITION!! WOOOO!

    Does any one know where i can get an nes controller?

    Try the DI (if you have one near you). Mine had two and I picked one up for $2. Happy hunting

    You sir, are a BAMF, and if anyone looks at you with the "face of geeky disgust" feel free to choke them mercilessly. That's one of the greatest things I've ever seen. Go forth and pwn with that.

    thanks dawg. i'm actually not that geeky, just felt like making it, its freakin' awesome. people look at me weird and are like wtf. and I just tell them i'm cool and they stop talking haha.

    I will admit this is a good idea for the belt buckle but what if you were to just take out the insides of the controller and replace them with some stuffing so that way you don't have to worry about getting rid of a good controller and besides you can still push the buttons and they will stay in  place

    how long did this take mine didnt use all the steps u drill 4 holes cut the cord cut 2 peices of clothes hanger

    Do you have an NES cell phone to match? :P
