Belts have reliably upheld people’s pants for countless years, acting as a practical finishing touch on an outfit and preventing countless people from having their pants getting pulled down in the name of an immature (but oh-so-hilarious) joke. Indeed, the history of belts goes back to sometime in the Bronze Age. There are signs of early belts throughout many different parts of the world, and though it would take thousands of years before the advent of Klik Belts to hit the market, you could say that we give nothing but respect to pant’s best friend.
An Ode To Our Early Belt Ancestors
In the next installment of our online belt blog, Klik Belts, your one-and-only source for adjustable belt buckles and aluminum buckle belts online, offers a mildly abridged history of belts. Keep reading below, and don’t forget to shop our selection of the world’s strongest and most comfortable belts. Let’s get started!
A (Somewhat) Brief Look At The History Of The Belt
Early Ages Of The Belt
The first leather belts — which, to no surprise, haven’t changed that much over the course of thousands of years — were used in the Bronze Age, sometime around 3000 BC to 1050 BC. These early belts weren’t what you’d traditionally think of as a leather belt, however. Advancements in leatherworking were to come hundreds of years later, and very early belts consisted of softened tree bark and gathered cloth pieces. They were, however, traditionally placed around the waist.
Belts Used For Self-Defense (Circa The Iliad)
During the time of the Trojan War, which occurred during 1200-1100 BC, soldiers at that time wore three different belts (as referenced in The Iliad): the zoster, a leather girdle with decorative stones; the aorter, a weapon that belt held a sword that was thrown over the chest (similar to a sheath); and a telamon, meaning a belt that was worn over the shoulder for any purpose (generally for holding some type of item).
Typically, these types of belts were thick enough to shield the wearer against being impaled by an arrow. At least, that’s what’s mentioned in The Iliad!
While belt buckles and metal hooks were starting to be cast from bronze, and would later have a stronger, reinforced iron core, leatherworking itself also made some advancements. Leather eventually became a commodity that was valuable enough to trade for utilitarian purposes, as they were capable of carrying weaponry and other useful items.
Before leatherworking started to really progress, stiff pieces of hide would rot in the sun. The use of animal fats eventually brought enhanced flexibility to leather, however, and aldehyde, sourced from burned leaves, has used to tan the leather.
Into The 1900s
Hey, we said that this was an abridged history lesson, right? Belts being used as a fashion accessory waxed and waned throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, but made somewhat of a resurgence in the 1800s. Women would wear belts and sashes to complement their dresses, thereby helping to define their waist.
The flapper movement of the 1920s meant that a lot of women choose long dresses over pants with belts, but the decline of suspender popularity in the 1930s once again resulted in more folks wearing belts. Buckles, as well as belt loops, were virtually nonexistent up until the 1930s. Belts used to be sealed together with knots, or even glue in certain instances. We can’t imagine that using glue or tying your belt buckle in a knot would result in a strong belt buckle!
The 1950s And Beyond
Though there was a distinct supply shortage during the era of World War II in the 1940s, belts were once again able to hit the mainstream scene during the relative abundance of the 1950s and 1960s. More styles of belts hit the market, such as the cinch belt, wider women’s belts, metal belts, and belts with a large buckle as the focus.
Going into the 70s and 80s, belts saw some of the most interesting and “creative” designs to date — though it’s no secret that fashion really started to become more “bold” around this time period. The 90s saw the rise of the iconic studded belt, a rebellious look often donned by those in the punk, heavy metal, or grunge subcultures. Studded belts usually came with plastic or metal spikes.
The Innovation Of The Clickable Belt Buckle
While Klik Belts aren’t the only belt with a metal buckle that “clicks” in like a seat belt, we’re the only ones to make the world’s strongest belt. In 2014, Klik Belts was born, utilizing our standard 7075 aluminum alloy COBRA® buckle from our friends over at AustriAlpin. With solid brass release clips and 1 ½” nylon webbing, coupled with sleek, unisex styling, we were able to shake up the belt game in a way that no one else had.
Though the 7075 aluminum found in every single belt buckle we use has actually been in use since the era of World War II, we still use it to this day for one good reason — it’s still one of the single strongest and most lightweight metals available. Why fix what isn’t broken, right?

There’s no telling when you might need to randomly secure something. You could be helping your friend move their furniture by loading some items into the bed of their truck, only to realize that you need some type of bungee cord or ratchet strap to secure the load. In the past, if someone told you, “Use your belt to tighten this sofa down!”, you would think they are crazy. But that was back in the day where you wore a flimsy, uncomfortable and weak belt. Since then, you’ve upgraded to a Klik Belt.
Get The Strongest Belt For Sale Right Here!
Indeed, Klik Belts are strong — really strong. We utilize COBRA® buckle technology pioneered by the folks over at AustriAlpin, consisting of 7075 aluminum. This is one of the strongest metals available used for a variety of commercial applications including fighter jets, passenger planes, and even space travel! Due to the strength of the materials we utilize, Klik Belts can withstand a total force of about 4,050lbs or 18kN (kiloNewtons). Just check out this video to see how strong our belts really are.
The strength of Klik Belts also makes them incredibly versatile. Here are some great ideas for inspiration to utilize your Klik Belt as a makeshift ratchet strap or bungee cord (note: Klik Belts is not responsible for any injuries or damage sustained while using our belts for any purpose, including purposes other than wearing them around your waist).
For Hoisting Up Heavy Items
Manually lifting bulky and/or heavy items is not only strenuous, but can result in serious injuries. Your Klik Belt can be fastened in a way that holds the weight of the item that you’re trying to move up above you.
Woodworking frequently involves the use of clamps to secure a piece of wood to a table saw or another surface. Your Klik Belt can work as a clamp to do just this. Make sure to wear protective eyewear and exercise extreme caution when working with power tools and other woodworking implements!
For Makeshift Repairs
It is not uncommon for people to throw a strap or two on the exterior of their vehicle in order to hold up their bumper, quarter panel, or another piece of bodywork until they can afford to have the shop fix it. While we wouldn’t recommend driving a vehicle with bodywork that’s supported by a strap (especially at highway speeds), your Klik Belt can withstand plenty of force to keep your car’s body panel safely secured.
You might look like a bit of a hippie for establishing a slackline between two trees at your local park, but it is possible to slackline with a Klik Belt. Of course, your slackline will be pretty short, so if you have multiple Klik Belts, combine them for a longer slackline.
For Pulling A Vehicle Out Of The Mud
We’re not saying that a Klik Belt is going to be nearly as effective as a legitimate winch in terms of pulling stuck vehicles out of a ditch, but we’re saying that it could work. If you’re concerned about causing further damage to any vehicle involved in such a situation, get a professional tow truck driver on the scene.
In Place Of Traditional Rope
Rope is useful for many different applications: tying knots, scaling the side of buildings in an urban exploration quest, and tying down your victims onto a railroad track in an old-timey villain fashion (kidding). In all seriousness, your Klik Belt’s COBRA® buckle will have no problem holding your weight or the weight of whatever you’re tying your belt around.
Strapping Down A Tent
Multiple Klik Belts used in place of rope or tent stakes could be an effective way to secure your tent to the ground. Remember, a tent that isn’t tethered to the Earth is as good as gone the moment the wind picks up.
Functional, Stylish, And Ultra-Durable: That’s Klik Belts!
At Klik Belts, we pride ourselves on the superior versatility of the strongest belt that you’ll ever come across. Life is too short to cheat your waist with a flimsy, inferior belt. Get a Klik Belt today to experience the difference that a great belt makes.
Long hours spent wearing the wrong clothing can really make your day feel less than enjoyable. Tight, restrictive clothing made with non-breathable materials leads to excessive sweating and even chafing if you live an active lifestyle, ultimately dampening your mood and ruining an otherwise fine day. A poking and prodding belt can make long hours sitting at a desk practically unbearable. Uncomfortable shoes with virtually zero support? Don’t even get us started on that one.
We Think You Deserve Daily Comfort. Do You?
Fortunately, you don’t have to let the discomfort win. You can comfortably go about each day knowing that your clothing isn’t going to hold you back from doing what you love, what you’re good at doing, or tackling the demands of the day. Your mind should be focused on whatever you want it to be instead of fixating on how uncomfortable you are. That’s a fairly simple idea, but it’s also something that countless Americans (and folks around the world) fail to put into practice.
Our Online Belt Store Cares
Well, Klik Belts is here to remind our readers that your comfort matters. We live out this value of daily comfort and functionality through the belts that we sell, designed to handle excessive wear and tear while looking good doing it. Without your typical belt holes or uncomfortable buckle system that you’re used to, the belts that we sell are easily adjustable and will always hold their position thanks to the patented COBRA® buckle hardware that we use.
So, you’ve got your belt “on lock,” but what about other everyday clothing items designed for optimal comfort and performance? Keep reading below for some comfort-friendly clothing tips from Klik Belts.
Wear Breathable, Synthetic Materials
When you’re enduring the blazing heat of the summer and it’s 80 degrees outside with 50 percent humidity, you’re not doing yourself any favors by wearing a cotton t-shirt. These days, clothing with sweat-wicking materials is actually pretty common, and it’s not difficult to wear performance polos that perfectly combine comfort and a professional look.
These materials were once associated with athletic wear, but they’ve hit mainstream, everyday clothing. Use them to your advantage; your torso and your legs will thank you.
Don’t Underestimate The Importance Of Layering
When it’s not summer and you’re living in an area that gets really cold, you’ll need to layer clothing to stay warm. This is especially important in high elevation areas that often come with rapidly fluctuating temperatures. An insulated, down jacket over thermal base layers topped with a waterproof exterior jacket is an excellent way to stay completely warm and dry when there’s inclement weather afoot.
Layering may not always be the most stylish approach to fashion, but smart layering is guaranteed to keep you feeling comfortable, warm, and dry when the elements throw you some shade.
Upgrade Your Sock Collection
Most people don’t pay enough attention to what’s on their feet. No, we’re not talking about your shoes, either — we mean what’s in between your feet and your shoes. Many socks are incredibly thin and aren’t made with breathable materials, meaning that after a long day of standing, walking, or simply wearing your shoes, your feet sweat and are left with...well, you get the idea. Feet can get pretty gross, and low-quality socks aren’t helping.
Spruce up your sock drawer with high-performance dress socks, thick wool socks, and other pairs of socks designed to breathe and repel moisture.
Embrace The Idea Of Insoles
If you spend a lot of time working on your feet or walking around all day, you’re going to need shoes with a good amount of cushioning on the bottom. Unfortunately, comfortable running shoes just don’t look very good with other casual or business attire, so you’re left with putting gel inserts or other insoles into your better-looking shoes. Fortunately, doing so is very easy and quite accessible.
Even without custom insoles designed to match the contours of your feet, generic insoles will make a world of difference compared to the standard, worn-down insoles that came with your shoes.

A comfortable, functional outfit is simply incomplete without the right belt for the job. Shop the most comfortable belts online here at Klik Belts!
For most dog owners around the world (and especially here in the United States), folks tend to take their furry family member very seriously. Indeed, a dog is exactly that for many people: another member of the family that receives the same respect and treatment as any other human family member. Cute dog gifs and adorable videos are exchanged on the internet in order to brighten people’s days, and many businesses have opened shop just to cater to the canine market.
Express Your Canine Love With Our Durable Dog Collars For Sale!
Our point? People love their dogs, and so do we here at Klik Belts. That’s why we proudly make Klik Collars, a pup-friendly extension of our line of adjustable belts for sale designed just for dogs. We sell incredibly strong collars for service dogs and K-9 unit dogs, and standard collars for simple family dogs. Whatever breed you own or whatever your dog’s style of living is, we’re confident that we have a dog collar for sale that they’ll love.
Products That Help Your Dog Live Their Best Life
Below, we’ll cover a few aspects of Klik Collars that make them so great for your dog, and then we’ll also touch on a few more essential items that any modern-day pup should have. Of course, since your dog probably can’t navigate and place orders on the internet (though it wouldn’t surprise us if your dog was capable of this!), we’ll leave it up to you to get a clickable dog collar.
What Makes Klik Collars The Best?
They Use Tried-And-True COBRA® Belt Technology
If you’ve been a long-time Klik Belts customer or an avid blog reader, then you’ve probably noticed that we frequently highlight our COBRA® belt buckles. Why? That’s because these buckles are integral to the strength and support of our belts. Sure, the belt webbing and materials are important, but it’s the buckle itself that provides the signature click that our belt wearers have come to know and love.
Dogs are dogs: they like to play hard, jump in the water, and roll around in the mud. Whether you’re training a service dog or you’ve adopted a new member of your family, it only makes sense to get them a collar that’s built to handle the roughness of a dog’s life.
We’re no dog fashionistas perse, but we’re of the opinion that our collars for dogs look pretty spiffy. Our “on duty” Klik Collar collection features colors designed for working dogs, and those colors include Black, Wolf Gray, OD Green, Coyote, and Hunter Orange (great for visibility!). For regular, everyday dogs who aren’t working for their owners, Klik Belts offers a nice range of Green, Aqua, Navy Blue, “Fashion Pink,” and Yellow.
From strictly pragmatic to totally fabulous, we think that your pup deserves to look as good as they’ll feel wearing a Klik Collar. After all, it’s not like dogs regularly get any choice with their clothing (or even wear any clothing at all), so their collar may as well look good, right?
People Agree That Klik Collars Are Legit
Our verified buyers think that their dog’s Klik Collar is the best dog collar they’ve ever used. They’ve reported experiences with cheap collars that degraded after only a few month’s worth of use, or being chewed through by their dog. Our strong dog collars hold up extensive wear and tear, they’re easy to put on and take off of your dog, and the collar itself feels soft and comfortable despite how rugged it is.
All things considered, it doesn’t get much better than that for you and your pup!
Now, here are a few more essential items that passionate dog owners should consider buying:
A Pet First Aid Kit
If your dog loves to romp around and run outdoors, there’s no telling what could happen to them. Consider stowing a small pet-oriented first aid kit in your vehicle for those adventures when you’re out and about with your best friend. At the very least, keep a regular first aid kit on you and make sure that it includes items like absorbent gauze pads, adhesive tape, disposable gloves, 3% hydrogen peroxide (fresh), tweezers, etc. You’ll never know when this could come in handy!
A Sturdy Harness
Unfortunately, Klik Belts doesn’t make a harness for dogs (yet!), but having a sturdy dog collar is a good place to start. Attaching a leash to your dog’s collar can cause choking when you go to pull them back, so a harness is a great way to distribute this force throughout their entire body. It’s more secure for you as the owner, and more comfortable for them, so it’s a total win/win.
Deodorizing Bath Wipes/Paw Wipes
Many thick-coated dogs love to play outside no matter the time of year or what the weather is like, which is great, except that they tend to get quite dirty. Keep things clean and avoid the dreaded smell of wet, stinky dog with a simple set of paw wipes for dogs. Make sure to go with a brand that doesn’t use any harmful chemicals.
Klik Belts: Your Source For Dog Collars Online!
Our original customers may see Klik Belts as the best belt provider in the world, and while we’re humbled by that reputation, we want our readers to know that we also carry dog collars! Get your dog something they’ll truly love, and don’t forget to leave us with a review about you and your dog’s experience.
Though it’s strange that it takes a new calendar year for people across the world to make positive changes in their lives, the truth of the matter is that many folks really do see New Year’s as a time to reinvent themselves. Whether you’ve been struggling to walk up that flight of stairs, only read one book in 2018, or still wear the same four t-shirts that you’ve had since college, there’s always something that we can change about how we live our lives, and we’re sure that you’re no exception (unless you’re perfect, of course).
Improving Your Life With Positive Choices This Year
Though we can’t tell you how to live your life, we here at Klik Belts are confident that you’ll be happier, feel better, and likely live a more fulfilling and endearing life when you make some positive adjustments here and there. Here are some great ways to improve your quality of life in 2019.
Cut Down On Screen Time
No, we don’t think that all forms of technology are inherently evil, but staring at the blue light on your smartphone certainly isn’t prompting your body to fall asleep at night. There’s no need to be on your phone every waking moment of the day, and unfortunately, that seems to be how many people treat their devices.
Just cut back on your screen time a little bit; your mind will thank you.
Make Healthier Food Choices
We know, we know; this is generic New Year’s Resolution advice. However, convenient ways to eat healthy such as mail order meal kits weren’t as popular several years ago. A decade ago, they were hardly a blip on the food radar.
Nowadays, eating like a respectable human is easier than ever before. Of course, the hustle and bustle of daily life doesn’t necessarily make that easy in and of itself, but just skip the fast food here and there in favor of a healthy snack or homemade chicken and veggies.
Drink More Water
The simple fact of the matter is that most people don’t drink enough water. Sure, they’re drinking plenty of fluids, but beverages like coffee, energy drinks, soda, and alcohol aren’t helping your body hydrate itself. On the contrary, they’re actually dehydrating you whether you realize it or not.
Fortunately, this positive change is about as simple as it gets: just drink more water! Invest in a refillable water bottle (there are literally thousands of options out there) and take it with you when you run errands, go to work, hang out around your place, or drive anywhere. That way, you have no excuses, and you’ll already be drinking something so you won’t have to buy an unhealthy beverage.
Oh, and did we mention that water is (normally and generally) free? It doesn’t get much better than that.
Keep Booze To A Minimum
Alcohol is enjoyable, and it definitely has its time and place. But you don’t want to drink too much of it too often, simply because it’s just not good for you. There is science to suggest that consuming alcohol can negatively affect your body’s metabolic processes for up to about three days, meaning that your body can’t break down food as efficiently.
Take the weekdays off and moderate your consumption to the weekends. That way, your body has time to properly flush out all of these toxins. Then you can put our previous piece of advice to use!
Move Around More
You don’t necessarily have to hit the gym or subject yourself to jogging just to stay in decent shape. People that live active lifestyles are naturally more fit and slim simply because they’re active and always doing something.
Even if it means using a standing desk at your office job or going on long walks with an audiobook as opposed to reading it at home on the couch, doing whatever it takes to be active is always worth it.
Upgrade To The Most Comfortable Belt
At Klik Belts, we’re proud to carry the most comfortable and durable belt that you’ll ever wear. If you’re still using a prodding and poking belt from 1995, it’s time to make the change this New Year. Shop our main collection of men’s belts online for a belt experience that your pants — and your waist — will thank you for!
There’s a strong correlation between what we’re wearing and how we feel. Should you head out to the grocery store in your pajamas with bunny slippers, words that describe your mood might be “careless,” “a lack of self-awareness,” or “just a little bit dorky.” Conversely, if you dress in your Sunday best and get yourself cleaned up for a big job interview, you’re going to feel pretty good about yourself and how others perceive your appearance.
Look Your Best With Klik Belts This Holiday Season
Is it shallow to care so much about what other people think about your appearance? At Klik Belts, we don’t think so. We think that belt wearers like you should take pride in your appearance, and that’s why we offer a number of the world’s strongest and most comfortable belts in a variety of styles from work-worn to ultra-chic and formal. A belt truly is the finishing touch to your pants, and you shouldn’t have to compromise comfort for style (and vice versa).
There’s nothing quite like feeling confident about your appearance, and you deserve nothing less than looking your best. Klik Belts can help! Check out our fashion and formal Klik Belt collection for yourself, or read on for several suit essentials that we think every suit owner should rock.
A Good Watch
Could you imagine what James Bond would look like without his trustworthy, gadget-filled watch? We’re not saying that your average suit wearer should have a watch that shoots out lasers, per se, but there’s just something about a nice watch that really completes a formal outfit — especially a suit.
There’s also something about wearing a watch that seems to boost your credibility. By wearing a watch, you’re telling people, “I have my life in order because I always know the time.”
Bonus points if you get a watch that perfectly matches your Klik Belt (or, again, vice versa).
While cufflinks may be perceived as a little outdated and even gaudy to the modern man, we think that there’s nothing wrong with reverting back to a classic suit look, especially if you’re a fan of wearing French cuff dress shirts. In a world of boring, standard button-cuff dress shirts, cufflinks that express who you are and what you love are a welcome accessory.
If your job involves formal wear on a Monday-Friday basis, it’s worth investing in a few pairs of cufflinks and French cuff dress shirts to stand out from the formal crowd.
A Nice Scarf (Or Two)
Scarves keep your neck warm, they always look classy, there’s a scarf for every season (hot summers notwithstanding), and they make great holiday gifts, too. Scarves are a time-honored fashion trend having been around for thousands of years. Historically, men’s scarves were used to keep soldiers warm out on the battlefield.
With an incredible array of colors to choose from, you can maintain your gray/black look or add some color to match your tie with a nice green or blue. Stick to a cotton or linen scarf for the warmer parts of the year, and a wool or cashmere scarf for the holidays and accompanying winter season. If you can find a merino wool scarf, your face and neck will thank you.
A Variety Of Fun Socks To Choose From
Can you rock the sock? Wearing a funky pair of multi-colored socks underneath your ordinary slacks is a great way to express the “business in the front, party in the back” mentality. If you feel like you must stick to boring socks to confine with the corporate world, know that many powerful CEOs and other influential business figures actually tend to rock novelty socks more often than you’d think.
Make sure to find comfortable, slightly padded dress socks if you spend a good amount of time on your feet.
Though this men’s formal wear item isn’t necessarily a standard piece, a pocket square is a great way to get that finishing touch on your favorite suit. Buying a colored pocket square to match the theme of a company party, holiday gathering, or any other classy event shows that you’re committed to looking dapper and festive, and you’re sure to get compliments on it.
After all, why dress up in the first place if you’re not going to receive a few compliments on how great you look? Life is too short to look anything less than superb.
Most guys don’t rock tie bars these days, and we’d be willing to wager that many guys don’t even know what a tie bar is. They’re a small metal clip that’s designed to be both fashionable and functional, as it helps keep your tie in place without causing any damage. Tarnishing an expensive tie is a true shame, so you’ll want to go with a nice tie bar by a reputable company — in the same way that you’ll want to get a nice belt from a reputable belt company like Klik Belts.
Due to the fact that tie bars tend to be somewhat of a rarity in the formal world, they can make a great conversation starter at a party. At the very least, they’ll help provide a sense of uniqueness.

There was a time when you used to be there for me. There was only an hour before the wedding vows dropped, and I was shopping at Kohl’s in a pinch to complete my wedding day outfit. I desperately searched for a plain black belt that fit my waist to no avail, rifling through their sub-par selection in frustration. But then, there you were.
I didn’t think much of you at first. Initially, you were merely a means to fit in with the wedding party’s theme while holding up my slacks — and you did a great job doing it! The wedding was a total success, without any stylistic suspicion from the bride or her crazy, everything-needs-to-be-perfect mother.
Truly, everything was going well between us.
In the days following the wedding, I realized that I needed you more than I once thought. As I’m sure you remember quite well, my aging belt purchased from Zumiez back in 2007 had seen better days, and that’s a sore understatement. My pants no longer had a go-to support system, and I was sure that my peers would make fun of me for what could only be described as a “prominent” plumber’s crack.
With no other options than MacGyvering a flimsy, makeshift shoelace strap-belt, I turned to you in my desperate time of need...and there you were. I proudly donned you around my waist, and sure enough, you gave my worn Levis the support that they deserved. Thus began the golden days.
Together, we laughed, we cried, and we did things that I didn’t know non-sentient objects were capable of. At one point, I thought you were just a magical belt that a confused wizard placed on the rack at Kohl’s, but perhaps I was losing my wits at that point.
It was at that point of questionable mental stability that I realized something eerily unsettling: I didn’t know any better.
I desperately began to search my memories to trace back to the moment when I initially donned you. I originally acquired you because I was in a tight situation; I had no intentions of buying a cheap belt (and yes, I’m going to use the word “cheap” because you know that’s an accurate descriptor). Perhaps it’s my fault for having no viable alternative once the wedding was over, or maybe I should have started opting for joggers or pants with a simple elastic waistline.
But I can’t undo the past. The only thing I can do at this point is recall the memories of pain, discomfort, and deterioration — memories I wish to repress, and memories that only my new best friend can help me sort through.
That’s right. I have a new best friend now. His name is Klik, and he treats me and my waist like we deserve to be treated. No longer does my belt poke or prod at my sides. No longer am I forced to choose a certain belt hole where the diameter is either too small or too big. No longer do I have to worry about my belt failing on me when I need it most, which is literally all of the time when I wear 90 percent of my pants.
I’ll admit, it took me an embarrassing amount of time to figure out how you treated me over those years. I really shouldn’t have stuck around with you that long, subjecting my pants to sub-par support at best — and that’s putting it nicely.
So, not that you asked, but I’m doing better now. With Klik by my side and around my waist, I’m able to do the things I love without worrying about my pants falling down. I’m never worried about getting “pantsed” by my immature peers, and I’m never worried about finding the right belt hole because belt holes are so 1990s. It’s time to get with the program, and I’m glad I did. I can’t say the same for you.
Klik uses COBRA® Buckle technology, so I can always rely on my trusty pal to stay secure no matter what I’m doing. While Klik is made with ultra-durable materials, Klik is also surprisingly soft and lightweight, so my pants are never weighed down. My pantalone compadre is even strong enough to support holsters, and that’s more than you’ll ever be able to say. Best of all, thousands of pant wearers like me agree that belts like Klik are the best around.
I don’t want to come across as rude or overly harsh, but it’s important for you to know that I’ve moved on to a better belt experience. Thanks to Klik and Klik’s extended family of belts in a variety of tasteful colors designed for a variety of uses, people like me can finally live the life we’ve always wanted: with total support and waistline freedom. It’s what we deserve.
It’s not too late to change, though. Despite how you treated me and my waist, Klik and I see through those dark times and we forgive you, so long as you’re willing to change for the better. By learning more about Klik Belts and their legendary support and comfort, you too may one day be able to be the belt that every belt deserves to be. That’s all we ask of you.
Thank you for reading, old friend, and I hope to see you on the good side soon.
Your Former Wearer,
We must warn our readers about this blog post: as you read this, your blood pressure will elevate, and your irritability levels will rise. You’ll feel uncomfortable, you might feel like you have to constantly adjust something, and you may even notice an itch start to develop.
Now, why would Klik Belts subject our valued blog readers to such a thing?
That’s because we want our readers to know what it’s like not to wear a Klik Belt, i.e., the most comfortable belt they’ll ever wear. The unfortunate reality of many pant wearers is that they stick with conventional belts that poke and prod, and they don’t know any better when it comes to durable, comfortable, and attractive belt alternatives. They simply visit a department store, get a cheap, fake leather belt, and use it to support their trousers without a second thought as to what else is out there.
Spreading The Word About The Best Belts Online
It’s a true shame that many people still don’t know about our adjustable men’s and women’s belts for sale, but our goal is to change that. For our readers who have made the switch to a better belt, the things that we touch on in today’s blog post may seem pretty familiar to you in terms of the sheer frustration and lack of comfort that a conventional belt brings you.
We’ll let you gauge our extent of exaggeration below, but read on about several things that just tend to irk most people — and why they’re fairly on par with an ill-fitting, low-quality belt. Let’s take a look.
Everyday Things That Frustrate Us As Much As An Inferior Belt
When Your Earbuds Get Caught On Something
Nearly anyone who’s ever worn earbuds (or headphones) has experienced this unfortunate “phenomenon” before. Here you are, minding your own business while jamming out to some music, when you turn the corner or proceed to brush against something that catches the cord of your earbuds. Before you can even realize you’ve caught your cord on something, your earbuds get violently ripped out of your ears, completely killing your musical vibe.
Fortunately, most earbuds and headphones are moving over to wireless technology these days.
Stubbing Your Toe
Need we say any more? Again, you’re minding your own business, walking around the house, when you turn the corner, accidentally miscalculate your step, and end up reflexively spewing a series of colorful expletives because your big toe got jammed on something. We’ve all been there, and we know how little fun it is to stub our toes.
At least with stubbing your toes, the pain subsides after a few minutes. With the wrong belt, you’re dealing with that pain for hours and hours on end.
Many food items and other consumer products have packaging that’s designed to think that there’s more product than there really is. You’ve likely opened something, been excited to use it, and immediately been disappointed (or even flat out ticked off) with the amount of stuff that you actually received. To make matters worse, you can’t rightfully tear into the packaging at the store until you’ve actually checked out with it, so there’s really no way of knowing what you’re getting.
It’s nice to get a good deal on a product, but how much have you really saved when you’re left with less than you originally bargained for?

When People Tip With Things That Aren’t Real Money
Though this isn’t a common practice, it’s not unheard of for some people to tip with a fake dollar bill that looks real from far away, but is actually just a piece of paper with a message on it. Often times, the piece of paper has a religious message on it describing how there are things more valuable than money.
Of course, this is America and anyone is free to engage in their religion; we have no problem with that part. However, servers and other food service employees who rely on these tips to live need...you know, real money to make a living.
When Vending Machines Rip You Off
You paid fair and square for that bag of chips, and as it gets dispensed once you’d made your selection, you watch in idle frustration as the machine drops your bag halfway down the shoot and it just stops. The natural reaction is to start shaking the machine, similar to Kevin Malone’s approach in The Office.
The decision to make, at that point, is to either contact the vending machine company to unlock the machine for you, or to walk away from wasting time over a $1.30 bag of chips. Don’t worry; we’d contact the vending machine company, too.
When You Hammer A Nail And It Immediately Bends
You then proceed to pull out another nail, and for whatever cosmic reason, the replacement nail seems to work just fine. There’s no logical explanation for this, but the only thing you know for certain is that you’ve wasted a nail for reasons beyond your mortal comprehension. Thanks a lot, nail.

The frenzy of the holiday travel season is dawning upon us. There are storms to anticipate, logistics to sort out, family members to contact, clothes to pack, clothes to unpack and then repack, gifts to purchase, and reservations to confirm. Of course, that’s hardly scratching the surface of what a third of America does during this time of year, but it illustrates our point that this time of year is pretty hectic, to say the least.
Let Our Comfortable Belts Help You Travel This December
In light of holiday travel season, the last thing that you want to worry about is what’s holding up your pants. Could you imagine having your trousers fall down as you exit the airport security area? That video would definitely go viral, but with the power of the world’s most comfortable belt around your waist, you won’t have to worry about this happening.
Simply un-click it before the body scanners (privacy rights notwithstanding), and click it back into place when you’re on your way to your gate. That’s as easy as a seatbelt!
Show Your Flight Attendants Some Appreciation
After you’ve dealt with waking up early, getting to the airport, dealing with your vehicle, venturing through the security lines and finally boarding your flight, it’s finally time to doze off in your seat. But wait! Be the hero that flight attendants deserve but don’t necessarily get very often.
It shouldn’t even be said to be a decent passenger who exercises common courtesy, uses their pleases and thank yous, and smiles when interacting with a flight attendant. While you should absolutely adhere to in-flight decency, you can really make a flight attendant’s day by going the extra mile (up in the sky, nonetheless).
Consider bringing in a box of chocolates or another shareable gift for the flight crew just to express your appreciation for their service during the often stressful holiday season. We guarantee they’ll remember your kind gesture, and they may even pay it back with a couple of complementary adult beverages. You never know!
Bring Snacks On Your Person
With delays and overpriced, unhealthy airport food practically imminent for your travel plans, having easy access to a healthy nutrition or protein bar can be a total lifesaver. If the person that you’re flying next to seems a little cranky, a little snack is all that it takes to turn their mood around. Just make sure to offer in a non-condescending manner, like something out of a Snickers commercial.

If you’re one of the millions and millions of people who travel for the holiday season every year, then you’d probably appreciate just about anything that makes the experience less of a hassle. Let’s be honest: flying somewhere can be exciting, but checking in, going through airport security, making it to your gate, and sitting through the actual flight can be a total pain in the rump. It’s about time that traveling wasn’t such an inconvenience for people.
How Klik Belts Can Help
You might be thinking, “This is great, but just how can your adjustable belts help me have a smoother holiday travel experience?” That’s a fair question, and it’s a question that we’ll touch on a little further below in today’s travel tip blog post.

Book The First Flight Out
Now, this travel tip only works if it happens to work with your schedule or travel itinerary, but if you can, take the first flight out that morning. Yes, it’s insanely early. Yes, it’s dark out. Yes, you’ll be a zombie. But guess what? You can sleep during the flight, and you can probably sleep at your family member’s house once you reach your destination.
Why take the first flight of the day out? That’s because delays are more likely to occur with later flights in the day. Even if there isn’t a storm on the horizon (and how could you predict something like this that’s so far out?), it’s a safe bet to buy a ticket for an early bird flight.
Get To The Airport Early
The holiday crowds are going to bottleneck airport security, so make sure to arrive earlier than you normally would. It’s always better to hang out at your gate for a while rather than run toward it with your shoes in hand and a face that screams “I didn’t plan my time very well!”
Again, it may be quite the early morning for you, but take this time to catch a nap before your flight boards, read a book, or even do some work on your laptop. Long security lines are all the more reason to try and get the first flight of the day like we mentioned above.
Remember That You Can’t Always Travel With Gifts
Your homemade jellies and jams will certainly be appreciated by the recipient, but TSA officials sure won’t appreciate them. Keep their travel guidelines and limitations in mind, and don’t wrap any presents until you reach your destination, as an unknown item may have to be unwrapped. That’s no fun.
Use Our Comfort Click Belt For An Easy Airport Security Experience
Klik Belts are great because they’ll instantly click together and click apart for fast and easy removal when you’re headed through the security lines. It doesn’t get much better than that!
