TOP 3 TIPS WHEN CLIMBING A MOUNTAIN


Climb the Mountain!


This is the moment you’ve been waiting for! You’ve done all of your preparations. You are in top physical shape. You’ve researched the mountain you are climbing. You’ve learned the mountain’s unique weather patterns. You’ve practiced in climbing gyms and on easy mountains with some experienced climbers. And you’ve gotten all of the gear, including your TSA-compliant belt from Klik Belts. You’ve packed your bag the night ahead of time and gotten a good night’s sleep. And now, the day has dawned, and you're heading up your first mountain!


Most mountain climbs begin very early in the morning in order to ensure you have time to make it to the summit and then back down again or to make it to your camping spot. You eat a hearty breakfast and meet your fellow climbers at the base. Now it’s time to begin! Here are some general tips to do right before you begin your ascent:


  • Check your backpack. Your backpack, along with your other climbing gear, such as your TSA-compliant Klik belt, contains everything you need to be safe and in case of an emergency while climbing the mountain. Make sure you have adequate fresh water, food, a pocket knife, rope, extra clothing and rain gear, a compass, your map, and a satellite phone if you so desired. 
  • Designate a leader. When you are climbing a mountain, there is usually a designated leader who decides the route and takes responsibility for leading you up the mountain. This is usually the most experienced climber in the group. As the leader, you are to follow exactly what he or she says at all times and be respectful. After all, this person is most likely taking you under his or her wing.
  • Stick to your planned route. Changing your route halfway up the mountain is not usually a good idea unless there is some unforeseen hindrance, such as a rock slide, blocking your route. This only leads to confusion if you change.
  • Listen to your body. As your first mountain climb, you won’t know exactly what to expect. You’ll probably need to take frequent drinks, hydrate, and periodically snack along the way. It’s easy to get dehydrated, especially in the cold, because your body may not be sending you the signal it is thirsty.
  • Stay with your group. It’s never a good idea to go off by yourself when you are climbing a mountain, even when you are experienced.
  • Take lots of pictures at the summit! This is the moment you’ve been waiting for: the summit! Enjoy your accomplishment, and take pride in your achievement.
  • Be careful on the descent. Most mountain climbing accidents take place on the descent. This is because you are in a hurry to get back down, and because going down a mountain can be harder than going up. Stay focused, watch your footholds, and stay roped if you are using a rope. It’s when you become unvigilant that accidents happen.

 

Never Stop Improving


As Klik Belts has mentioned before, one of the most attractive things about climbing mountains is the constant challenges you face. Once you get the basics down with mountain climbing, you will be ready to tackle more challenges. Some include glaciated peak mountains that require very technical gear and skills. Volcanoes are often the next best step after your beginning mountain climbing skills are solidified. Mountains such as Mt. Blank or Mt. Rainier are great to beef up your mountain climbing skills on. Expedition peaks are great practice as well and offer the challenge of walking in and of climbing rocks.


Hopefully, you will have made some great connections through the mountain climbing club you joined. You can join some group climbs the club offers, or ask a friend to tag along on their next easier mountain climb. There is so much you can learn from others, while having fun at the same time.


Have Fun!


The whole reason you began to climb mountains is to have fun. You have to enjoy the journey along the way in order to enjoy the victory. You’ve probably made new friends and done things you never thought you’d do. Take pride in your accomplishments, plan your next adventure, and have fun!

MOUNTAIN CLIMBING TIPS

Practice, Practice, Practice


Once you have done all of your research and you’re starting to acquire the best climbing gear, including a TSA-compliant belt from Klik Belts, then you are ready to begin training to climb mountains. A lot of nascent climbers skip this mistake and end up regretting it in the long run. Patience is just as important as practice when it comes to mountain climbing. Here, it’s a good idea to go climbing with someone more experienced than you, perhaps from your local climbing club. You’ll want to get together with a friend or two and practice on some low-key hikes and boulders. If you plan on climbing tall mountains, you’ll need to learn how to ice climb and use an ice axe. Self-arresting techniques will be invaluable, as well as glissading. Crossing crevasses and snow bridges will be good to learn as well as glacier walking. Klik Belts recognizes that while these scenarios may not exist where you live, just going through a similar situation will have you prepared for the real deal.


You’ll want a solid foundation in basic first aid, rescue signals, fire making, survival skills, and avalanche safety training. Going through scenarios will be key, as well as practicing with more experienced climbers.


Mountaineering Etiquette


When learning to mountain climb, you’ll see that there is a lot, which is part of the allure of climbing a mountain. When you are climbing a mountain, you are part of a small community that does so, and it’s important that you help out when needed. You may be halfway through your climb and have to stop to help someone else because you would want someone to stop for you.


Klik Belts, a proprietor of the best TSA-compliant belts, notes that if you climb mountains in foreign countries, remember you are a guest, and you must abide by their rules. You need to respect the environment, leave no trace behind, and follow all laws and regulations. You’ll want to be as safe as possible, climb smartly (meaning not beyond your ability), and stay with your climbing party. Majority rules when climbing mountains, so it’s best to check your ego at the door.

 

Plan Your First Climb!


Finally, you’ve spent weeks — most likely months — planning your first climb, and you’re ready to begin. Choose an easy mountain to begin with. Klik Belts notes that different countries assign mountains different grades so be sure you are picking an easy mountain to climb before starting. You should either go with an experienced guide or with an experienced mountain climber and the more the merrier on your first climb up a mountain. Here are some general tips for choosing your first mountain to climb:


  • Choose walk up mountains to begin with. These mountains have no nasty rock patches to traverse or ice pitches. Mount Elbert in Colorado is a good example of a walk-up mountain, as well as Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa.
  • Aim for close to home. Some people new to climbing mountains are blessed to live close to the mountains where there are a lot of choices. Others of you will have to travel far distances to find suitable mountains. Try to find a mountain close by when you first begin. It will be less mentally taxing, so you can save your mental game for the mountain. Plus, if you choose a nearby mountain, you can avoid airport security, and you can use your TSA-compliant belt for simply carrying your tools instead.
  • Aim for minimal altitude change. While this can be a challenge to find, you’ll want to get a feel for what a change in altitude does to your body. You’ll also spend less time worrying about other weather-related issues, such as exposure and oxygen deprivation, and you’ll be able to enjoy your climb instead. Klik Belts reminds you that you are just beginning. The mountains aren’t going anywhere, so they will be there when you are ready.
  • Prepare. Preparation will be key in any mountain climb, even your easy mountain climbs. You’ll need to know your mountain inside and out, what rock formations and/or ice you’ll have to climb, its history, climbers’ history, and the best route to take. Knowing what (if any) amenities exist will be paramount as well.
  • Go old school and new school. Always have a map of the mountain with you at all times. Surprisingly in this day and age, this could be your lifesaver. Mountains are notorious for not having cell phone reception so being prepared with old school tools, such as maps and compasses, are key. Also, keep in mind new school tools as well. Satellite phones can be incredibly useful and give you peace of mind when climbing a mountain. They can also be a lifesaver if the worst happens.

How to Climb Mountains with TSA-Compliant Klik Belts

How to Climb Mountains with TSA-Compliant Klik Belts

A popular saying is to climb a mountain you have to take the first step. While this is usually used metaphorically to describe how to accomplish a goal, it has some truth to it when you are mountain climbing. You do have to take the first step; however, there is much more involved than that — and much more needed. While day hikes into the mountains don’t require too much mountain climbing gear, some pieces of equipment are still essential — such as your TSA-compliant belt by Klik Belts. In this blog post, we’ll go over some tips to begin mountain climbing, including some basic fundamental gear you will need. Browse our online belts that are TSA-compliant today!


TIPS TO CLIMB MOUNTAINS


Research, Research, Research


Climbing mountains is not for the faint of heart, and it is just as much about being mentally fit as it is about being physically fit. A good way to learn about what you are getting into is to read accounts of other mountaineers. Klik Belts, a company that makes top-notch TSA-compliant belts, notes that there are many good books of climbing adventures, as well as movies and documentaries you can watch. 


Besides learning about climbing itself, you’ll need to learn about your particular mountain you are considering climbing. Mountains are like people — each unique in their own special way with different climbing challenges and different weather patterns, depending on where they are located at on the globe. For example, if you want to climb in Europe, it’s best to go to June to September. For Alaska, the ideal climbing time is June and July. 


Weather is a big part of climbing as well, and on mountain ranges, weather can turn at the drop of a hat. There are generalities to learn about particular mountain ranges, but like Klik Belts mentioned above, each mountain will have its own unique weather patterns you must learn. This is a very important piece to climbing mountains and the more of an amateur meteorologist you become, the better prepared you will be. From learning to read the clouds and what bad weather looks like to  knowing about lighting, mountain weather will be crucial in your mountain climbing edification.


Suffice it to say, climbing mountains will be a lot of work, but well worth it in the end when you conquer your first summit!


Get in Shape


Deciding to climb mountains is not like deciding to read 100 books in a year. You have to be physically prepared, as well as mentally prepared. If you are out of shape and don’t have the stamina or endurance built up, then you will not be an able-bodied mountain climber. You could also be putting your friends at risk who would have to carry you down the mountain if at some point you can’t continue. You will need a dedicated fitness regime in order to build the strength and endurance you will need to climb mountains. Activities such as running, weightlifting, climbing practice at indoor climbing places, and skiing and snowboarding should all be incorporated into your routine. Deciding to climb mountains is a decision that should not be taken lightly, and physical preparation is a must.


Join a Club


It’s important before you venture forth on your first mountaineering adventure to find a mentor. By joining a club, you’ll not only meet local mountaineers who are usually willing to take you along on climbs, but you’ll also find those just like yourself — beginners interested in the sport. There are many dangers when you climb mountains, and one of the first rules you’ll learn is to never climb alone. Klik Belts, a maker of the best TSA-compliant belts notes that you’ll need help if something happens, and finding climbing buddies is one of the preliminary steps to climbing mountains.


Learn About Pushing the Limits


Climbing mountains can be extremely physically taxing as well as mentally taxing. However, the ability to make good decisions under duress can mean the difference between life and death. In fact, for many mountain climbers, part of the allure is the mental aspect. You’ll need to be sure you can push past mental barriers when your body has had enough. You’ll need to be a good problem-solver, as well as have a positive attitude. Overabundance of self-confidence, however, can spell trouble.


Gear Up


Klik Belts, a proprietor of the best TSA-compliant belts, notes that mountain climbing gear will be essential to your success. While mountain climbing gear can be expensive, this is something you can slowly invest in over time. Like all things, the better the quality, the better your experience will be, so going for the cheapest option may not be for you. Some of the essential mountain climbing gear you will need include:


  • High-quality backpack, which is one of the most important pieces of a mountain climber’s gear
  • Helmet
  • Ice axe or hammer
  • Head lamp
  • Warm clothing designed for extreme weather
  • Top-notch climbing boots with crampons
  • Harness or belay break
  • Tent
  • Sleeping bag that can withstand low temperatures
  • Pocket knife
  • TSA-compliant belt
  • And much more!

Klik Belts includes our TSA-compliant belt on the mountain climber’s must-have list for several reasons. These TSA-compliant belts are meant to do their job — hold your pants up. They are airport-friendly belts, meaning if you are climbing mountains outside of your native country, you’ll need to get through airport security quickly. Our heavy duty and our tactical TSA-compliant belts, such as our 1.5" Black Poly/Coyote Brown 2-Ply TSA-Approved Belt are built to hold up under the toughest wear, including mountains.


MOUNTAIN CLIMBING & SURVIVING WITH TSA-COMPLIANT BELTS


As one of the best companies that makes TSA-compliant belts, Klik Belts has also designed our rugged, heavy duty belts to be the best in the business. This means that in a survival situation, a camping, heavy duty belt can do a lot of things in a pinch. For instance, our TSA-compliant belts can carry survival gear, such as flashlights and hatchets. You can use your airport-friendly belt to make cordage. You can use your heavy duty belt to hang food off the ground with. Of course, your travel belt can be used as a tourniquet, a sling, or a splint if need be. There are so many uses for your TSA-compliant belt that having one is not only a time saver but an essential part of your mountain climbing gear. When you can breeze through airport security without having to take your airport-friendly belt off, you’ll be that much closer to the summit of your first mountain.

How to Fly with Dogs, Part 2

How to Fly with Dogs, Part 2

Some people love to fly. Take pilots for example. Whether they are flying a commercial airliner, a fighter plane, a helicopter, or a paraglider, those who love to fly can’t wait to get back up in the air again. However, a lot of people do not like to fly, especially on commercial airliners. For some, it’s not necessarily the flying itself, but the process of flying, from parking at the airport to getting through airport security. In fact, those that don’t like the process of flying could probably be converted over to lovers of flying if the process were made easier.


Enter Klik Belts, the maker of the best TSA-compliant belts that were designed with the express purpose of bringing our already best-in-class belts to the realm of security compliance. When you purchase a TSA-compliant belt from Klik Belts, you can rest assured you’ll be getting a top-notch belt that will eliminate the need to remove it before going through airport security.


Increasingly, many people are now flying with dogs in tow. Dogs, at least for Americans, are part of the family. They are beyond just companion animals and are now viewed by many to be invaluable to their lives. In our last blog post, we discussed many tips with flying with dogs. In this blog post, we’ll continue our look at flying with dogs. Browse our amazing selection of TSA-compliant belts, and order yours today!

MORE TIPS TO FLY WITH DOGS


Purchase the Right Sized Crate


Hopefully if you are flying with dogs, they are crate trained already. If not, throwing them in a crate and then plopping them on a plane for the very first time is probably not the best idea. 


First, many airlines require a certain sized crate, or carry-on pet carrier for storage purposes. A carry-on usually must be soft-sided and be able to be stowed underneath your seat. For your dog that will be traveling in the cargo area of the plane, you’ll need a crate that is durable, have handles or grips for the airline personnel to use, have padded material in case your dog has an accident, be properly ventilated, and be labeled in the biggest letters possible that you have a live animal inside and that you write your contact information on it as well. Klik Belts, a maker of the best TSA-compliant belts, recommends that you check with your airline on proper size dimensions as well.


Take Your Dog Out Ahead of Time


You’ll want to make sure your dog has plenty of time to do its business before being put into its crate for a long period of time. Dogs hate soiling their dens, or the places that they sleep. If your dog has no choice, they will, but it just adds more stress to your dog. It’s also a good idea to play with your dog ahead of time. Wearing your dog out before the long trip may help them sleep some of the way, which will decrease the stress on your dog.

Minimize the Amount of Time Your Dog is Away From You


Klik Belts, a company that offers TSA-compliant belts, recommends that you do everything possible to minimize the amount of time you are separated from your dog. You’ll want to wait till the last minute to check your dog into the baggage area, and you’ll want to get off the plane as soon as you can upon landing and go and claim your dog. This will help relieve both of your anxieties as you realize your dog is okay, and your dog is back with its owners.


Be Prepared for Quarantine if You are Travelling Overseas


Some countries require live animals to be quarantined for a minimum amount of time before they will release animals into their country. This is to ensure animals are disease-free, and for dogs specifically, that they are rabies-free. However, many countries now have ways for you to avoid quarantine if you meet certain requirements, or do a very minimum number of days. Do your research ahead of time so you can bypass quarantine. However, you still need to be prepared in case your dog is quarantined.


Be Mentally Prepared for What Could Go Wrong


While we all hope nothing goes wrong with your pet during airline travel, things can go wrong. You need to be prepared mentally for the worst. Some of the things that can go wrong are listed below:


  • Your dog could escape its dog crate. If your dog escapes its crate or the crate is damaged to the point your dog does escape, they could be lost forever. Oftentimes, dogs just run when scared, and in an unknown city, your dog may be long gone. Your dog could also become injured running around on the tarmac or in the cargo area of the plane. The best preparation for this Klik Belts notes is to have a well-trained dog who will come to you when called.
  • Your dog could die. A plane’s cargo area can be a scary place for a dog. It can get very hot or very cold in there, depending on the weather outside both where you takeoff and where you land. Let’s face it, a plane’s cargo area was designed to handle luggage, not pets.
  • Your pet could be loaded onto the wrong plane. This is doubly stressful as now your dog has to endure more flight time to be reunited with you. Klik Belts, a proprietor of the best TSA-compliant belts, recommends that you ask to watch your dog be loaded onto the plane to ensure your dog is onboard. There’s almost nothing worse than postponing your vacation in order to retrieve your lost dog.
  • Your dog could be scarred for life. What we mean by this is that some dogs don’t have the temperament for flying. After all, airports are scary places for dogs. They are stuck in crates away from their families. They have to endure extremely loud noises (since dogs hear much better than we do, these are really loud noises) from the airplane. And if they are mishandled, such as their crates thrown around, they could never ever get in a crate again. Although we love our dogs and treat them as our children, the reality is they are still dogs, and they don’t have the mental capacity to understand what is happening to them. When they don’t understand, phobias develop — sometimes for life.

Klik Belts, a maker of the best TSA-compliant belts, loves dogs. We urge you before flying with your dog to properly prepare your animal, or it will be unpleasant for everyone. If you must, perhaps Fido would be happier at home rather than by your side for your vacation. You must weigh the pros and the cons, and do your best to guess what is best for your dog. Remember, you are ultimately responsible for your dog’s safety, health, and well-being. Some caveats Klik Belts has are listed below:


  • Don’t fly with old dogs
  • Don’t fly if your dog has a medical condition or is on medication
  • Don’t fly if your dog is a Brachycephalic (smashed in noses like a bulldog)
  • Don’t fly if the temperature outside is at its extremes

HOW KLIK BELTS CAN HELP


Time is of the essence when traveling with dogs. Klik Belts understands that you need to get through airport security quickly after you check in your dog at the last possible moment. We make the best TSA-compliant belts on the market that are superior in every way to others.

How to Fly with Dogs

How to Fly with Dogs

Flying, in general, is stressful, more so than driving. This is due in part to the fact that you are not in charge. You are putting your life into the hands of someone you don’t know, which subconsciously is scary for most of us. You can’t pull over when you want to. You can’t leave when you want to. You can’t even control which route you take. Flying is all about trusting the plane to get from point A to point B with no problems — something many of us don’t do well. If you decide to travel with your best friend, your dog, your stress level probably went up another notch. 


Klik Belts is all about stress relief. We offer the best TSA-compliant belts on the market, made from the strongest materials that feature the durable polymer belt buckle that is metal-free. You can rest assured that you won’t be setting off any metal detectors with our airport-friendly belts. In this blog post, we’ll go over some tips on how to fly with dogs.

HOW TO FLY WITH DOGS


Will You Have Your Pet With You or Will Your Pet Be in the Cargo Hold?


Pets are safer when they travel with you in the airplane. This is for obvious reasons. You are in charge of their care and well-being and can ensure they are well taken care of. However, many airlines restrict the number of pets allowed on a flight, including on the flight itself. Also, whether your dog gets to travel with you or not is often not up to you. Most airlines have breed restrictions and size restrictions with regards to whether you have to check your dog. Also, there are additional fees as well.


Get a Health Check Before You Fly


Nowadays, most airlines require a health certificate for your pet to fly. Every year, dozens of dogs and cats die flying, and while this is a small percentage according to the airlines who love to take fees for your animals, it’s a risk you have to accept should you choose to fly with your dog or cat. Thus, a health certificate helps with liability for the airline should your pet die of a previous health condition, and it’s just prudent practice for the owner, especially if your dog is extremely young or older.


Know Your Breed and Your Dog


Flying can be equally stressful for your dog, especially if you own a dog breed that gets upset when you leave home. However, you can help your pet by being calm. Dogs especially can read the state of their owners, and they can internalize this themselves. It’s extremely important that you be as little stressed as possible when flying with your dog.


If you have a breed of dog with a short nose, such as a pug, a boxer, Pekingese, and the like (Brachycephalic is the word used for these kinds of dogs), then know that your dog is at an increased risk of dying because of breathing problems at high altitudes. Many airlines will not fly bulldogs at all due to these risks. Klik Belts recommends that you know your dog above all else and how they will react to the stress of a flight before you fly your dog.


One way to lower your stress level is to speed up your time at airport security. Airport security, for a variety of reasons, causes a lot of stress. You may end up waiting in line for a long period of time, or you are late for your boarding time, but airport security is slowing you down. Whatever the reason, you can lower your stress level by investing in a TSA-compliant belt by Klik Belts. Our belts feature the strongest polymer belt buckle that is metal-free and won’t set off any security checks. These airport-friendly belts are not only strong, but they are durable and versatile as well.


Ask About the Conditions in the Cargo Hold


If your dog will be relegated to the cargo hold (usually if your dog is over 20 pounds), you’ll want to check with the airline on the temperatures inside the hold during flight. Otherwise, you will have to time your flight with the temperatures during the day. If you are heading somewhere warm, choose an early morning flight when it’s cooler. If you are heading someplace cold, choose a later afternoon flight. Most airlines won’t fly your dog unless the outside temperature is between 40 degrees and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. If your pet sits on a runway, it can get overheated quickly. Similarly, your pet can freeze as well. Make sure your dog will be given priority for unloading, which is especially important in extreme heat.


Be In-Tune with Your Dog


Your dog trusts you implicitly with its life. When you agree to have a dog, you are responsible for its well-being all around — physical, mental, and emotional. When you put your dog’s life in the hands of others, do the best you can to ensure your dog will be safe. After all, your dog will do whatever you tell them to do, and they can’t tell you if anything is wrong.


Klik Belts, a maker of the best TSA-compliant belts, has a few more tips:


  • Opt for a direct flight if possible
  • Don’t fly your dog during the hot summer months
  • Keep communication open between you and the airline
  • Minimize the amount of time you are separated from your dog
  • Wear your TSA-compliant Klik belt to help speed up airport processes for your dog

Remember that each airline has their own pet policy, so before your book any tickets, give them a call to see their specific pet flight requirements.


THE BEST TSA-COMPLIANT BELTS


Klik Belts are designed to be unisex, but we also offer our designs for our travel belts for both men and women. Our partners over at COBRA® have designed our new metal-free belts to be easy to take on and off, extremely secure, lightweight, and to slip through airport security and other metal detectors unnoticed. When traveling with your dog or cat, it’s important to minimize interruptions as much as possible in order to better care for your dog. Our unique webbing is designed to fit through all pants loops, and our 2-Ply Tactical belts are designed for heavy duty use, especially for law enforcement personnel, firefighters, prison guards, and specialty-trained courtroom employees, as these make great CCW belts.


Whether you want a 1.5" Black/OD Green Poly 2-Ply TSA-Approved Belt for your frequent flight, or you want a 1.5" Black Poly COBRA® Buckle/Brown Nylon 1-Ply TSA-Approved Belt for everyday use that won’t set off any metal detectors, Klik Belts has the color and belt for you. Our airport-friendly polymer COBRA® buckle belt features the best belt buckle that won’t set off any alarms while going through airport security.

How to Fly with Kids, Part 2

How to Fly with Kids, Part 2

In our last blog post, we detailed how flying with children in tow can be stressful — so stressful, in fact, that many parents opt out of flying altogether and instead embark on a road trip. While road trips can be fun, when they are super long, they are also super stressful. 


Klik Belts has made it our mission to help ease the stress of traveling, including for those with children. We have developed the best TSA-compliant belts on the market, making airport security a snap. Instead of having to remove your belt because of its metal belt buckle, we have instead replaced the metal belt buckle with our innovative polymer belt buckles. You will effortlessly breeze through all metal detectors without the hassle of having to take your belt off and then proceed to hold your pants up until you get through airport security. Our non-metal belts are strong and durable. In this blog post, we’ll continue our look at tips in order to lower your stress while traveling. Browse our TSA-compliant belts today!


MORE TIPS TO LOWER STRESS WHILE FLYING WITH CHILDREN


 Give Them a Responsibility


Kids love to be given a responsibility that they can handle. It makes them feel grown up, and it shows that you trust them. It can be as simple as making sure their younger sister or brother have their favorite toy, or giving them a carry-on bag that they need to make sure gets on the flight. You can play this up in importance, too. Telling your child that what’s is the bag is critical for where you are heading can give them an added purpose and a buy-in on your trip. If it’s Grandma’s birthday, say her present is in the bag. Or, if you are travelling to a wedding, tell them they are carrying a crucial item, such as a gift for the bride or an outfit they will wear.

Make Interactions with the Airline Positive


Klik Belts knows that flying with children adds a whole new level of stress. What also is stressful is dealing with the airline when they tell you there are unexpected charges, or you have to check an item you thought you’d get to keep as a carry-on. Make sure you understand all the charges for your baby flying, as well as your children under two. Research the carry-on rules so you know if your stroller is okay to bring on the flight as a carry-on. Expect some flight personnel to speak to you if your child does get unruly. For the most part, there’s not much you can do in a tight compartment where you can barely walk around in. It’s best to interact with the flight personnel as nicely as possible and realize they deal with unruly little kids all the time. Kindness will always yield you better treatment than rudeness.

Be Prepared for All Types of Weather


One of the biggest mistakes that Klik Belts notes that parents make is not bringing enough clothes with them for their children, especially in the summer. Young children’s bodies are less able to regulate themselves, and because they weigh less than us but have the same relative surface area, it’s harder for them to cool down and get warmer. The smaller the child, the faster they lose heat or the longer it takes them to cool down. Hence, air conditioning especially can affect your child and make them extremely cool, and most airplane flights crank the air conditioning due to all the bodies crammed together in such a small place.  Always bring a jacket, and consider bringing a blanket as well, especially for smaller children. It’s always easier to strip off clothes than to not have any in the first place. A cold or hot child will be absolutely miserable, and everyone around them will know it.


Be Prepared for Airport Security


Airport security can one day be a walk in the park and the next day be a parking lot, especially if you are travelling around the holidays. In our last blog post, we emphasized the importance of allowing more time when you travel. One of the reasons you need more time is to get through airport security. There are two things to remember about airport security: First, the line may be long and slow, which is difficult for small children who just want to run and play. Be prepared with activities to keep them close. Secondly, there may be extra security because you have small children. All of your bags will have to be checked, and most likely you will have to help your children with their shoes and other security requests. Plus, if you do have food and water (which are usually allowed for children under three), airport security can be a nightmare.


One way to ease the airport security stress is to invest in a TSA-approved belt by Klik Belts. Our belts are not only aesthetically pleasing, but they are a snap to get on and off. Designed with a polymer buckle that has zero metal in it, your belt won’t set off metal detectors. Hence, you can leave it on, saving you the trouble of taking it on and off. If you have a child who tends to run off at any given opportunity, you can bet while you’re struggling with your belt, your child is off exploring, leaving you to fuss with your belt and scramble to get your child. Eliminate the fuss with our airport friendly belts today!


Let It Go


Like Elsa in the movie Frozen, sometimes you just have to let it go, meaning don’t worry about what other passengers will think and don’t respond if they say something rude. Kids are kids, and there’s only so much you can do. This same advice goes for the whole flying experience. Odds are, something will go wrong. One of your kids will get sick on the flight. Someone will cry and fuss. A favorite toy may have gotten left in the waiting area. However, kids have a right to fly as well, to live life to the fullest, to visit Grandma and Grandpa, and to go and see new things. Don’t feel the need to apologize for your kids’ behavior or cries. After all, your children are doing the best they can under the circumstances as well. 


Klick Belts, a maker of the best TSA-compliant belts, notes that for most people, flying is a pain and unpleasant. But we do fly in order to reach our destination, which can be a beautiful, white sandy beach, a castle in Ireland, or seeing a camel in Africa. Keep the endgame in mind as you are flying, and you will be a lot less stressed.


HOW KLIK BELTS MAKE FLYING EASIER


As a parent, you have enough going on to deal with. While using a TSA-compliant belt by Klik Belts may seem like a small thing and a small time saver, this can be golden for parents who don’t want just one more thing to deal with during the airport security line. Not to mention a lot of us rely on our belts to make sure our pants don’t slip and fall. Imagine having to deal with your pants during airport security and try to contain your three year-old who thinks the metal detectors are cool places to run in and out of. 


Flying can be tough all around. However, Klik Belts has made it our mission to make it a bit easier by making TSA-compliant belts to ease the burden of airport security. We offer both men and women’s TSA-approved belts that contain the strongest plastic polymer on earth. These fully adjustable airport-friendly belts are durable and are a cinch to take on and off. They come in many wonderful colors, so you can order a few and have enough to match every outfit you own. We offer heavy duty belts that are extra wide, as well as leather gun belts to hold your concealed carry weapon when you are not flying. Check out our 2-Ply TSA-compliant belts by Klik Belts that features a very rigid webbing for those who have more gear.


When you are flying with kids, the little things do matter, such as a smile from a fellow passenger or even just someone helping you pick up a toy your toddler dropped. These TSA-complaint belts will take one more thing off your plate, which is what every parent needs. Browse our selection online, and order today!

How to Fly with Kids

How to Fly with Kids

Flying is stressful. From having to arrive at the airport hours ahead of time and find airport parking to having to get through airport security without being suspected as a terrorist and strip-searched, sometimes the only thing that makes flying worth it is the destination at the end.

TOP 5 TIPS FOR FLYING WITH KIDS


Arrive Early to Everything


Kids have no sense of time. It’s not on purpose that they do this; it’s because their brains just aren’t developed enough to have a sense of time. While this does improve with age, it’s something you have to teach them. This is why they constantly ask, “When will we be there?” Hence, when you are flying with kids, expect there to be mishaps, spilled milk, and unforeseen delays like diaper changes. You want to build in extra time so you are not stressed about trying to not miss your flight.

Take an Early Morning or Mid-Afternoon Flight


Flying is not only hard on parents; it’s hard on the kids as well. Having to drag your suitcase around an airport and walk all day can be taxing to your little ones. Try to plan your flight around when they will be sleeping so it will go much smoother for everyone, including the flight attendants and other passengers. An early morning flight or a mid-afternoon flight around nap time is perfect for your little ones.


Bring Snacks Galore


Klik Belts recommends that you bring more snacks for your kids than you think you will need. Airplane food is notoriously devoid of taste, but to your picky child, it’s probably downright disgusting. You can even surreptitiously pack your child’s favorite treat and save it for a breakdown moment. Hungry children are unruly children — something you definitely do not want on a cramped airplane where everyone around you already expects your child to misbehave.


Bring Activities Galore


As most of us know, airports and airplanes are notorious for delays. If you’ve taken our tip above and built in extra time than needed, then you will most likely be waiting for your plane to begin boarding, or you will be delayed or in-between connecting flights. To fill this time, Klik Belts, a maker of the best TSA-compliant belts, recommends that you bring along plenty of activities for your child to do. From bringing a portable game player, such as Nintendo and LeapPad, to bringing coloring books and a deck of cards, the more your kids have to do and are occupied, the less likely it is they will become bored and find trouble to get into.


Be Prepared for Their Ears


Children, especially little children, have a hard time dealing with their ears. Your ear has a tube called the Eustachian tube, which equalizes air pressure in your ears when you rise or lower in elevation. Thus, when your ears pop from yawning or swallowing, that is your ears adjusting. However, kids have smaller Eustachian tubes than adults and can have a harder time adjusting the air pressure inside them. If your child has a cold and their ears are clogged anyways, they may not be able to equalize the pressure. When you are unable to equalize the pressure, pain can occur, which is why babies cry upon landing as the air pressure increases. The pain is just temporary until the air pressure is equalized, but that won’t stop your child from crying in pain.


Klik Belts, who makes the best TSA-compliant belts, recommends that you bring gum along if they are old enough, which can help them equalize the air pressure. Yawning can also work, as well as swallowing. Pacifiers and lollipops are great alternatives.


WHY CHOOSE TSA-COMPLIANT BELTS FROM KLIK BELTS


Klik Belts offers metal-free belts to save you time getting through airport security. When you are traveling with kids, just getting to the airport security line could have been a nightmare. Now, you are standing and waiting, and the last thing you need is to have to do one more thing, such as taking off your belt in the airport security line. 


Klik Belts’ airport-friendly belts are lightweight, easy to take on and off, and are stylish. They are great for security personnel as well who constantly have to go through metal detectors at work, as well as government employees, courthouse workers, and military personnel and families. Klik Belts TSA-compliant belts are versatile, strong, and come in an array of colors and styles to meet your needs. As a busy parent, our TSA-compliant belts could be the life buoy you need at the airport. Browse our amazing selection online today!

Women’s Klik Belts for Concealed Carry

Women’s Klik Belts for Concealed Carry

Women who conceal carry are definitely in the minority, especially those who practice on the person concealed carry, rather than in a purse or bag. First, there just aren’t a lot of women out there who shoot. Of those, there aren’t a lot of who want to carry concealed. While this trend is growing, it is still a small number compared to the number of men who carry concealed.


Klik Belts makes the best belts for concealed carry, including our 1.5” Poly 2-Ply TSA-Approved Belt. We offer leather gun belts and 1.5” Belts 2-Ply Tactical belts. Even though these belts are not specifically designed for women, they are a perfect fit and will hold your concealed carry gun beautifully and smartly. In this blog post, we’ll go over some different positions for you to carry your concealed carry weapon using your Klik Belt. Check our our new TSA-Approved belts that feature the strongest plastic belt buckles for easy airport security clearance. Order yours today!


BEST CONCEALED CARRY POSITIONS FOR WOMEN


Concealed carry positions are numbered according to a clock. Twelve o’clock is your belly button, 3 o’clock is your hip, and 5 o’clock is where your kidneys are located. Let’s take a look below at the best places for women and what they need to consider for concealed carry on Klik belts.


12 O’CLOCK POSITION


The 12 o’clock position is at your belly button. Your concealed carry weapon should align with your zipper. This is great for both IWB (inside the waistband) or OWB (outside the waistband) carry for your Klick gun. Many women prefer this because when you sit down, the barrel of the gun does not jab you. This position works great for petite and skinny women. However, if you are wearing low-rise pants, you’ll have to cover your firearm with your shirt or jacket instead.


2 O’CLOCK POSITION


The 2 o’clock position (also known as the appendix position) is very popular with women. The firearm is easily accessible and easy to hide. You may have to adjust this based on how it feels while you sit because the barrel may hit the top of your thigh. Bending forward may jab you, so squatting may be the better option. Also, if you love to hug people, this concealed carry position may not be the best for you because the gun can jab the other person, especially if the hug is tight.


3 O’CLOCK POSITION


For most people, the 3 o’clock position for carrying your gun, whether concealed or open carry, is the preferred place. Most law enforcement officials carry their gun in this position because it sits right on the hip. The gun is out of the way of your legs and is easy to draw when needed. Your TSA-Approved Klik Belt will be perfect for this type of carry. This carry accommodates both IWB and OWB holsters and carries. The main problem that women have when carrying concealed with the 3 o’clock position is that your gun can make your hips look uneven, which then draws attention to your firearm. However, you are fully free to move and bend over with your firearm in this position.


4:30  O'CLOCK POSITION


Another popular position is the 4:30 concealed carry position, which is just behind your back. This is a great way for women to carry your firearm using your Klick Belt. It’s out of the way, extremely comfortable, and you are able to move freely. You can hide your firearm easily this way, except when you bend forward, which can leave a firearm imprint. The key to this position since your firearm is behind you is to make sure you have the mobility to easily grab your gun and to practice drawing it. However, this carry is great for women who like to wear tighter clothing.


6 O’CLOCK CARRY POSITION


Also known as the Small of Back (SOB) position, this position is not convenient for most women. While it does a great job at fitting in the small of your back, it can be hard to reach for most women. It also can be uncomfortable if you sit a lot, and if you are grabbed from behind by a perpetrator, it will be almost impossible to reach your gun in this position. Belt-wise, Klik Belts do an amazing job at holding your gun in position. Again, bending forward will reveal your gun so squatting will be the answer to avoid this.


THE MISSION OF KLIK BELTS FOR WOMEN


Let’s face it, carrying a concealed weapon can be a burden, especially for women who tend to wear tight clothes. However, if you want to protect yourself and your family from threats, this is the best way to do so. You should always carry your concealed weapon with a holster in order to protect the gun and protect yourself from the gun accidentally firing. You should conceal carry consistently; otherwise, you will leave yourself vulnerable in case something happens. One final tip for women who conceal carry: you need to have your gun chambered. Otherwise, when you pull your gun out to fire, either you have to take the time with your adrenaline pumping to chamber the gun or the perpetrator will already be firing at you. Shooting to kill can be a matter of seconds.


Klik Belts makes the best belts for women for use as a concealed carry belt because we want to make it easier for you to carry concealed. We admire women who take the initiative to protect their families. Like most things in life that are worth doing, it just takes practice. With our TSA-compliant belts designed for concealed carry and open carry gun owners, your practice time will be cut in half with the easy-on, easy-off method. Once you discover the right position for you for carrying your firearm, you soon won’t notice it at all, and wearing your concealed weapon, along with your TSA-compliant Klik belt, will soon become second nature.

What Is the Strongest Metal in the Universe?

What Is the Strongest Metal in the Universe?

If you’ve been following along with our blog lately, chances are that you’ve seen a bit of a focus on superheroes. The reason for this, of course, is that Deadpool 2’s Cable chose to wear one of our heavy duty belts. As CNET so eloquently put it, Cable has one of “the most convoluted backstories in comics,” but one thing is for certain--he’s unstoppable. The truth is that for someone like Cable, a Klik Belt is the only option thanks to its strength and durability.

That got us thinking.

We designed our belts to be the strongest in the world. From the heavy duty nylon webbing to the world’s most durable buckles that are made out of an aluminum alloy, a Klik Belt can withstand quite a bit. With that in mind, we started to wonder about what the strongest metal in the comic book universe might be, so we did a bit of research. What did we learn? Keep reading to find out!

The Strongest Metals in the Galaxy

Adamantium

If there’s one fictional metal that has gained the most attention over the years, it has to be the one that’s covering the skeleton of none other than everyone’s favorite member of the X-Men. We’re talking, of course, about Wolverine.

Portrayed brilliantly on film by Hugh Jackman, Wolverine’s backstory is also a bit confusing thanks to the tendency of comic books to change origin stories and explore alternate universes on a regular basis. Nevertheless, it is generally agreed upon that Wolverine’s birth name is James Howlett. Born in the late 1800s, Howlett is a mutant with regenerative powers as well as the ability to produce his infamous claws, which originally were made of bone and could be broken.

Depending on the version you hear, the story can change from here, but the most popular storyline sees Howlett abandoning his name in favor of the name Logan and serving in both World Wars. (The second war would see Logan fighting alongside Captain America.)

At some point, Logan becomes an experiment of the Weapon X program, under which he is taken captive and experimented on. Part of those experiments? The fusion of adamantium onto his bones, which of course include his now legendary claws. The process also serves to make Logan pretty much indestructible. Between his regenerative powers, his adamantium-covered skeleton, his claws, and his berserker rage, Logan is quite a force to be reckoned with.

After escaping the Weapon X facility, Logan deals with memory loss (or false memories that were implanted during his experimentation, depending on which version you are reading) and eventually joins the X-Men where he became a fan favorite. From there, the story branches out into about a million different directions that are impossible to cover, but one thing remains: Wolverine’s adamantium-covered skeleton that makes him an unstoppable force.

Vibranium

Thanks to the popularity of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there’s another fictional metal that people are aware of. That metal, of course, is vibranium. As with many things in the world of comics, its backstory tends to be rather convoluted. If you’re a fan of the aforementioned Marvel films, there’s no doubt that you’re aware of vibranium’s use in them.

Originally introduced as the main component of Captain America’s iconic shield, vibranium also went on to play an important part in Ultron’s construction in The Avengers: Age of Ultron and perhaps more importantly, in this year’s massive hit Black Panther. In the Cinematic Universe, vibranium is native to Black Panther’s nation Wakanda, allowing them to create technology that makes even the impressive Iron Man suit pale in comparison.

If you’re a fan of the comic books, you know that Cap’s shield was originally made out of an alloy of vibranium and proto-adamantium, which, according to our friends at Wikipedia, has been shown to be pretty tough in the past. They note that in the past, “cosmic and magical or godly opponents have broken the shield, [but] the shield proves strong enough to absorb Hulk's strength, and repel an attack from Thor's mystical hammer Mjölnir without any visible damage.” They also mention that “it is able to absorb all kinetic energy and transfers very little energy from each impact, meaning Captain America does not feel recoil or transferred impact forces from blocking attacks.”

The comics show that vibranium has its origins in space and that it has been found in different forms in Wakanda and Antarctica, but that is has also been replicated in laboratories.

Aside from its use in Captain America’s shield, vibranium is used “in a micro weave mesh in [The Black Panther’s] uniform that robs incoming objects of their momentum.”

Uru

Last, but certainly not least, we come to uru. Possibly the least famous metal on this list, it’s present in at least one weapon that pretty much everyone has heard of. What weapon is that you ask? Thor’s hammer, of course!

Known by the name of Mjolnir, Thor’s hammer is recognized for being an unstoppable force no matter what comes up against it. Bearing the inscription that “Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor,” the hammer has been wielded by others throughout its history, which is no small feat.

Among those who have wielded Mjolnir over the years, perhaps Beta Ray Bill is the favorite. With one of the most incredible backstories in comic book history, Beta Ray Bill was the first to be able to pick up Thor’s hammer thanks to his dedication to undergoing experimentation and volunteering to lead his people to freedom. (As a matter of fact, Thor’s father Odin deemed Beta Ray Bill so worthy of possessing Thor’s hammer that he forged Mjolnir’s equal, a war hammer that was given the name of Stormbreaker. This name will be familiar to those who have seen Marvel’s recent success, The Avengers: Infinity War.)

Others throughout the years who have lifted Thor’s hammer include Captain America (which is no surprise, because if anyone’s worthy, it’s Cap), Rogue, Spider-Man, and Jane Foster, Thor’s longtime girlfriend who would go on to become Thor herself in recent runs of the comic book series. More surprisingly, characters such as Magneto, Red Hulk, The Vision, and even Wonder Woman and Superman in various crossovers have wielded the hammer containing one of the strongest metals in the entire galaxy.

One thing is for certain, however. No matter who is wielding Mjolnir, uru is one of the absolute strongest metals in existence.

Your Favorite Superheroes and Villains Are Wearing Klik Belts, Part 2

Your Favorite Superheroes and Villains Are Wearing Klik Belts, Part 2

If you read part one of our series, you know that at Klik Belts, we pride ourselves on making the world’s greatest heavy duty belts. It’s only fitting then that the world’s mightiest superheroes and villains suit up with the strongest belt in the galaxy.

That’s why Cable, one of the stars of Deadpool 2, wears a Klik Belt. Head on over to our Facebook page to see him in all of his gear. What an honor to have the character that CNET referred to as “a tragic time traveler with a metal arm and a light-up laser eye” sporting a Klik Belt!

And so it’s in part two of this blog series that we turn our attention to a name that’s gotten quite a bit of attention recently. It’s no wonder either, considering the fact that this villain starred in a film that has grossed over $1.3 billion since its release just four months ago. We’re talking, of course, about Eric “Killmonger” Stevens.

One of the Most Interesting Villains of All Time

As fun as it is to watch the good guys win, there’s just something interesting about watching a good villain, and by all accounts, Michael B. Jordan’s portrayal of Killmonger has captivated the attention of everyone who has seen Black Panther. If you’re one of the three people on the planet who hasn’t seen the movie yet, be sure to check it out, because it’s a fun movie even for those who aren’t particularly interested in stories about superheroes.

The Atlantic notes that Killmonger is “a profound, tragic villain,” and we have to agree. Rarely do you get to see a villain whose reason for villainy makes some kind of sense. Of course he’s pitted against the equally compelling King T’Challa (also known as the Black Panther), played expertly by Chadwick Boseman. It is the clash of these two characters (and their ideals) that makes for such a compelling film from beginning to end.

How Does Killmonger Suit Up?

It’s only fitting of such an imposing villain that he’d choose the toughest equipment around and if you head over to our Facebook page, you can see that Killmonger is decked out with a Cobra® buckle. If the name of that buckle sounds familiar, it’s because we use them on Klik Belts!

As a matter of fact, we’re dedicated to using only the highest quality materials from the aforementioned Cobra buckles to solid brass release clips to military spec nylon webbing. At the end of the day, we believe that our heavy duty belts are the strongest on the planet. Hey, if they’re good enough for the mightiest heroes and villains in the galaxy, that works for us!

We offer a wide selection of colors and combinations, ensuring that no matter what you need to get out of a belt, you’ll find it right here. Take a look at all of our products and order yours today knowing that you’re about to be the proud owner of the strongest belt on the planet.
