Belt Hooks

  [vote for,

This is an idea for belts that aren't quite long enough for the end to reach another loop and end up dangling because the gap between loops is too great.

Simple in design, it consists of a specially designed hook to go through a hole in the end of the belt and hook over the top of the portion of the belt that's secured. Thus, it holds the belt to itself, preventing dangling.

       I don't think I've worn a belt on the past 10 years. Off topic: why do people continue to wear them? Out of fashion? Otherwise I don't see the point.

       You can attach gadgets to them.

       Pericles, I presume they are worn for the same reason I wear them: to hold one's pants up. I've been biking to work for the last 6 months, and my waist is getting steadily narrower, meaning I'm constantly poking new holes in my belt to cinch it down tighter.

       And they hold gadgets, too.

       I thought this was a way to go fishing while scuba diving . But thisll work

       Why not buy smaller pants? Unless you plan on eating your way to a thicker waist again ;)

       I wear a belt because it is one of the few areas of the dress code at my place of work that they have yet to legislate, thus I wear whatever sort of belt I damn well please. It's the little things that keep me going.

       ... like that smidgen of benzoylmethylecgonine every few hours ...

       better than looping it up and over your pant waist so it pokes you in the gut.

       I see no reason why not.
21 Quest, Feb 05 2010

       Hey [Pericles]. Long time, no see. Or have I just not noticed. I've noticed a lot of old timers coming back to roost lately...

       {{{tightens belt for warm fuzzy moment}}}, ahhh, you old bakers, you.

       Even a properly fitting pair of jeans feels more secure with a belt.

       Plus the gadgets thing.

       i wear a belt for good luck, does anyone else? thinking about it i can not identify why i associate belts with good luck?

       Some people wear belts so that they have a ready device with which to beat their loved ones. The idea of adding "belt hooks" could help to further complicate family relations in certain circumstances.

       [Some people wear belts so that they have a ready device with which to beat their loved ones]

       Odd thought/sentence, even for here. Never thought of it that way. My mom used books and boards.
blissmiss, Feb 09 2010

       // My mom used books and boards //

       Are you pitching a claim for having had a deprived childhood, then ?

       My belt has it's own, adjustable loop.

       // My mom used books and boards // // deprived childhood, then ? // The books would beat some sense into you, surely ?

       I've talked about this here before, so I'm not really claiming anything, other than that is what was used. (The night she could only reach the Encyclopedia F-H, was really a useful one, for me, in the long haul.)
blissmiss, Feb 10 2010

       If you are handy enough to be poking holes and affixing hooks to salvage an old belt, why not just cut the buckle off, shorten the end that was on the buckle, then put the buckle back on, perhaps with some stitches or pop rivets?

       Not that I have anything against hooks swinging around one's nether regions.

       This would be an accessory, like a tie tack or a cufflink.
21 Quest, Feb 10 2010

       The loops on a lot of pants, particularly dress slacks, are often too tight to accommodate an extra layer of belt. And when you're dressed up nice, a folded-over belt often looks just as tacky as a dangling belt. It's like the difference between tucking one's tie into a shirt and using a nice chain stay or tie tack. I believe the word here is "class".
21 Quest, Feb 10 2010

       The word I usually think of rhymes with that.
