The Leather Belt Loop with Dee-Ring attachment
This style of Leather Belt Loop comes complete with a super strong, top quality solid brass Dee-Ring that is perfectly suited for use with pieces of kit that already have some kind of spring or trigger latch attachments, such as a small Karabiners or Trigger and Bridle Hooks etc. Other items such as drawstring pouches, compasses, pen knives and ferrocerium sparking flint rods etc that are supplied with string or leather lanyards can be looped through the Dee-Ring and tied off with a ‘Strap or Girth Hitch’ allowing items to be secured to your person whilst being stowed in a pocket etc.
Belt Loop Width
Please bear in mind the type of kit that you will be attaching to your belt. If the kit is lightweight, such as a Compass, Pocket Knife or Fire Flint, you would be advised to use the 16mm (5/8-inch) wide belt loop. However, if the piece of kit is heavier, such as a Water Bottle or Possibles Pouch, then we would recommend that the extra wide, 25mm (1-inch), belt loop be uses, since it will distributing the added extra weight more evenly across the belt.
Due to popular demand, we sometimes have a waiting list of 2-3 weeks for our Hand Made Leather items and over a week for smaller items.
Since this design of belt loop is a ‘Quick Release Belt Loop’ there are two basic approaches to quickly fastening, or removing, the belt loop to, and from, your belt, or rearranging the order of items on your belt, whilst the belt is still being worn: -
The first option is to use a high quality Press Stud that is available in a choice of three colours, Brass, Chrome or Military Spec in Black.

The second option is to attach the Belt Loop to your belt with a Sam Browne fastening stud. The Sam Browne stud, which is a proven, reliable and very simple military fastening technology, was invented in the 19th century by British army officer called Sam Browne, who had the misfortune to lose his left arm whilst serving in India. Naturally, therefore, Sam Browne studs enable you fastening two items together with just one hand and in only a couple of seconds. Using the KISS principle, as a guide, Sam Browne studs really have nothing that can go wrong with them, they simply work by pressed the brass Sam Browne stud through a specially prepared eyelet in another piece of leather. Moreover, this simple, reliable fastening system has been adopted by many of the world's armies and police forces during the 1940s and 50s, being used as part of their uniforms and webbing. When buttoned together with the Sam Browne studs the fastening is very secure, enabling you to relocate the belt loops to any part of your belt without the need to remove your belt to do so. You can, therefore, remove, attach or adjust the loops around your belt, positioning them where they feel most appropriate and comfortable, without the usual fuss that would normally accompany this procedure.
