Over the course of a year a few things in my golf world change. My handicap goes up in the spring and proceeds downward until the winter snow shuts the game down for the year. One thing which seems to follow a similar seasonal change is my waistline. I seem to have about a two inch variance throughout the year. Fortunately I’m staying in an “acceptable” range.

That two inch variance is between a 36 and 38. Yes Camilo Villegas’ waist is a tiny bit smaller than mine… My current lineup of golf belts have two holes in them which are worn at the 38 and 36 marks. Often a 38 is too loose and a 36 too tight. If it is tight, it is uncomfortable and if it is loose, well, I look like a gangsta with the low riders. 37 would be the ticket. Enter Ratchet Belt.

What is Ratchet Belt?

Ratchet Belt is a whole different concept in belts designed by a retired Navy serviceman. First, there are NO holes in the belt. There’s no pin in the belt buckle. This makes the belt look much nicer. No worn holes or waistline historical info.

If the belt has no holes for the belt buckle, how does it tighten and/or fasten?
