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.

This is, overall, a good product. It helps keep your shirt tucked in your pants, which has always been a bit of a problem for me, but especially since I put on some pounds in the gut. I can wear it all day with no discomfort (okay, sometimes it's been a little uncomfortable, but usually there's some other irritation involved and really, nothing feels comfortable 100% of the time)and no worries of my shirt popping up. My only real complaint is that there is no instruction on how to use it. I had to look it up online at some obscure site and read someone's forum comment on how to use this. So. Here's how:

It's pretty clear that you put the side with the protrusions toward the body so that it grips the shirt. To fasten the belt, you stick the small side of the button through one of the holes on the other end of the belt, doing the same for the other button. This is a bit counter-intuitive because the part of the button that goes through the hole basically has no space between the rubber of the belt and the back of the button for the other end of the belt to hold onto. Consequently, the buttons' hold is sometimes tenuous, and if I have to do a lot of standing up and sitting down, it will occasionally (not often) come undone, making me go to the bathroom to reaffix them. The other side of the button has plenty of room to hold the other end of the belt, but the button head is far too large to fit through the holes. I tried that side to see if it would work, but that just tore the belt. I also tried to shove the button through the belt, thinking it had slipped through its hole and needed readjusting, but, nope, it was fixed tight where it was supposed to be. So I hope these instructions help.

Ok, I read a lot of conflcting info on these reviews and I want to set the record straight. One thing that would help if this belt came with a simple instruction sheet. Nevertheless here you go:

1) with flat side to skin, set the belt length by getting it snug but not too tight.
2) Once the length is set, then put the heads of the steel rivets through the holes in the belt and do not undo them ever, unless of course you are adjusting the length.
3) put on your underwear and shirt
4) if you are wearing your shirt inside your pants- step inside the belt like you are putting on pants and tuck your shirt inside the belt. Leave a little slack in your shirt tail so it has some room to move.
5) put your pants on over the belt. Let the rubber belt set just under your regular belt line or a little lower.so it doesn't hang out of your pants.

the knobs on the rubber belt will keep your pants up and the flat side of the rubber belt will keep your shirt tucked in nicely all day. I wear it playing golf and at work, and it works great.

DO NOT UNHOOK The belt. Step through it!!

With 4 years in the army and 16 years in law enforcement, nothing comes close to keeping your uniform shirt tucked in.

Whether tucking in an officials jersey, or a dress hirt for a business presentation, this belt is a 'smooth operator'. Seriously, you don't need to be 'weight challenged' to want to buy this *must have* in your wardrobe, man or woman, Simple too use, comfortable to wear. Does what it is supposed to do, at a fair price.

I've been using this belt for over 12 years and it works great. That belt is a must if you wear uniform so your shirt stays tucked in. I've tried the suspenders and the new flexible valcro belt but this belt is by far the best. I highly recommend it.

Exceeded my expectations--does a great job keeping my shirt tucked in and my pants from sliding down (I suffer the double misfortune of a medium-sized gut and no ass to speak of, though I do have a nice personality); I am about to order a second in grey as a backup, and would recommend!

I never knew these types of items existed until very recently when I stumbled across 'shirt stays'. (A form of garter belts to keep the shirts in place).I had an upcoming public 'thing' I had to do and wanted to look neat and proper; I also needed to make a couple of clothing changes during the day so I thought the garter-type shirt stays too cumbersome. I spent a couple of hours researching the type of shirt stays available and settled on this one as it was the least expensive, in case I didn't like it. I put this on in the morning and wore it all day till the evening hours. I didn't even realize I had this on until I was undressing late that evening. Throughout the day and evening It held my shirt in and I never looked rumpled. There may be better belt type items - but this one worked as advertised. P.S I should add that I took the advice of previous reviews and fit the belt ahead of time and kept it engaged and simply stepped in and out of the now secured belt. Once it's fitted and set - leave it as is.

A belt that gives you a headache? Yes, it does with me. It does what it is supposed to do very well but transfers all of the weight of your pants, shirt, regular belt and your pocket contents to your collar. That gives me a nice flat spiffy looking front, but all that weight pulls on my neck and gives me a headache every time I wear it. I suppose if I wore it every day I'd get used to it. It will keep your shirt in and make you not have to yank on your waistband to adjust your pants and shirt all day though, which is a big plus especially if you are walking or standing all day.

Like one of the other commenters, I put keep it buttoned and pull it up into position instead of trying to button it while it's on. If fact I get dressed completely, then step into it and pull it up to my waist over my pants, that way it doesn't yank my leg hair out on the way up. I then slide into place under the waistband and it never touches my skin or pulls any hair.
