Introduction: Belt to Guitar Strap
Hello fellow DIY community, I've had a old belt for a while and it finally broke so I decided to turn it into a Guitar Strap. So I hope You Enjoy.
Step 1: Materials
Okay, the materials you will need for this project are:
1 Old Worn Out Belt
1 Leatherman Multi-Tool
1 Replacement Belt
If you get confused follow the pictures
Step 2: The Buttons
This step is very easy all you have to do is pull the buttons appart on the belt.
(If your not sure were they are the are in front of the clip)
Step 3: Taking Out the Buttons
Now is when the Leathermen comes in. What we will do is take the buttons out using the pliers this could be a little hard. Take them out one by one and put them aside and do what you want with them.
Step 4: Cutting the Slots for the Nobs
First, fold near the top and hold.
Now, take the Leathermen again and you will need the kife on it in order to cut a hole for the nob near the part farthest away from you as you hold it
Then, put it on the guitar and take the other side of the belt and find the slot were the buckle would go. Open it up on the sides so that it is wider and put this on the other nob.
Step 5: The End
Now your done with your Guitar strap, nice job.

Hey, I really like this idea. I've got a nice custom leather belt I never wear that would look nice as a strap. Thanks for posting this! Excellent pics and instructions.
