How do you cut the tires cleanly? Utility knife = stretches the rubber and makes crooked lines. Tin snips = jagged edges and crooked lines. Is there an industrial rotary cutter?

i too want to thank you for the Chicago screw info. I searched for screw rivets or just rivets before

wow, they're awesome, I saw some of them today in a market stand and I suddenly felt the need to built one! LOL

Use more than one buckle. Start your own trend. Ever seen a belt with three buckles?

I've never seen a belt with two buckles... how would 3 buckles work.

Thanks!!, it´s awesome!!!

I never thought of this!
What a cool idea!!!!!! TY for sharing!!

How do you guys make your loop holes so clean?

what if i need longer than what the tire provides.... like for a bigger man... how would i connect the tires together!?
