These high quality, handmade, Belt Loops are ideal for anyone who wishes to securely fasten small, lightweight, items of equipment to their belt, for fast-unobstructed access when the item is required for immediate use. All of the metal fittings are made from high quality solid brass, which never rusts, are incredibly robust and have a traditional aesthetically pleasing look and feel.
There is a choice of having either a 16mm (5/8-Inch) wide belt loop for lighter weight items such as Compass, Pocket Knife or Fire Flint, or a 25mm (1-Inch) wide belt loop for heavier weight items such as Water Bottle or Possibles Pouch, since the extra weight of these items will be distributed more evenly across the belt.
Picture above shows 16mm option in Black & Chestnut Brown with Sam Browne fastening.

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 high quality Press Studs that are 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.
This sale is for the Belt Loop only. Other items shown in photos are for demonstration purposes only or to show options available.
