Custom Intamin seat belt belt (+ how to)

First - I think the belt is kinda-nerdy cool. Though the lack of a method to adjust the length as needed (you know, on those days where you're feeling a little fat in that dress) is a drawback. I'd totally get one just to get the eyeroll reaction from my partner and friends if/when I wore it to a park.

Second....

Like other people have said, it's a good idea to ask your self how your post helps the conversation move along.

And that's why I don't post very much. All of my "inside info" comes from here in the first place, so I don't feel the need to add to the mix.

I read lots, but write very little. I've been here nearly 12 years, and I probably have fewer posts than some of you who have been here for 12 weeks. Not braggin'... just sayin'....

The buckle can adjust, it is the same method as on a dog collar or a backpack strap. One end of the webbing feeds through one side of the buckle, folds over, and through the other slot. It also has a sliding steel plate that jams against the webbing providing more friction as the force increases

Or bridal straps?

Sorry Tom, I couldn't resist! And yes, I think your belt is totally awesome. I'm jealous actually. You could probably sell them. I'm sure a few would be snapped up.

If you could attach it to a fanny pack, you'd be a coaster dork god.

I think you all are onto something big here... REALLY big. You could sell the belts with built-in fanny pack online, and at IAAPA and PPP. lol

But not HSN or QVC? As long as we're throwing all those acronyms out there...

Just as long as you report your earnings to the IRS.

I would certainly buy a coaster belt if you sold them through CB or Etsy.

I for one *love* the custom Intamin belt. But more as it was originally intended, as a seatbelt. This would be the perfect addition to my '65 Chevy. A nice custom touch that is a subtle nod to my other hobby (coasters) but not too in your face. Thank you for the link, I will look in to making these sometime in the near future.

I just made a Waist Pack with the Buckle and the Belt material for my 15 year-old son's birthday. It came out really great - so thanks to the original poster for the links and the idea. I used a basic Waist Pack (with the Buckle and Belt material) - and as he suggested, I took all the materials to a shoe repair place, and the guy was very creative and helpful - and got it all together very nicely. We love having a piece of Intamin at home now..

So I know this stale thread has become an example of "lol look at the nerd who's even nerdier than me" but I wanted to give an updated link to somewhere to buy the buckle. The link in the OP has gone stale.

As of right now, you can find the buckle here, among other places: http://www.outfitterscamp.com/stubai-click-fix-buckle-adjustable-st...07987.html

Note that there are two versions: XL and ... not. The XL has longer release tabs. I think the XL version is what's commonly used on rides.
