The Un-Belt - A ~More Comfortable~ Life Hack

in lifehack •  2 months ago

"My belt holds my pants up, but the belt loops hold my belt up. I don't really know what's happening down there. Who is the real hero?"
- Mitch Hedberg -

I hate belts.

Wait a minute. What I mean to say is that I really hate belt buckles.

Belt buckles are the pits.

Having now survived past middle age and into my "sunset years," my middle has developed an ungainly tendency to droop over any belt that I wear. Guess what that means?

If I'm wearing a belt with a buckle, the buckle becomes a veritable spear, stabbing me in my jelly roll.

Not fun!

And so, being the clever inventor that I am, I have devised "The UnBelt" which I shall now share with you, my loyal Steemit readers.

You too can make and benefit from an UnBelt.

How To Make An UnBelt.


  • Large paper clip
  • Rubber band

Pictorial Tutorial:

The UnBelt is so easy to make, anyone can do it. Even me.

That's all there is to it!

Once you know how, you can literally put an UnBelt together and install it on your trousers within a single minute.

The UnBelt

Comfortable. Easy to make. Readily available materials. Inexpensive.

Not only an emergency belt replacement, a more comfortable way to wear your pants. Yet another inventive life-hack, brought to you by @creatr.

You're welcome.

FINE PRINT: You may need to experiment with different sizes of rubber bands and paper clips. You can double any rubber band to both shorten and strengthen it by twisting it in the middle and folding it over. You may need to skip a belt loop on your trousers. Try it out and see!

I put the belt buckle on my right side, just as easy!


Great idea!

Hahaha you're a genius - I love it!!!

I love it! I recommend combining the paper clip and rubber band with some paracord, another universally useful item!

I may have some paracord somewhere, Thanks! ;)

'The Unbelt' - it has a catchy name too

Your mind amazes me. Indeed it is a simple solution and also saves on buying belts. Thanks for sharing my friend @creatr



I hate them so have opted for elastic!!! Shorts and flannels with elastic! Year around coverage lol.


I have some with worn out elastic... :O
