Not counter intuitive
on May 28, 2012
A previous reviewer stated that to use this item, one put the small end of the stud through one of the holes in the belt, even though that was counter intuitive.
Well, after using it that way for a few days, I realized that he was simply wrong.
Take the belt in your hands (not around your waist) and stretch it. You will see that the holes become oblong rather than round. In fact they start looking like the button holes on your shirt if you stretch the belt enough. Now, if you slide the large side of the stud through the stretched hole, sideways, like you would a button, it won't damage the belt and the belt will stay "buttoned."
I put the belt around my waist to figure out where to put the stud through to make the belt my size, but took it off to adtually put the studs through the right holes. I will never have to move the studs again. I simply step in, and later, out of the belt. This saves a lot of the wear and tear on the "button hole." It works like a champ. I wore mine on duty yesterday, as a police officer for my full 12 hour shift without a problem. My shirt stayed where it was supposed to be through all sorts of activities including several hours of waving my arms around directing traffic.
