After the campaign visit us at www.ZipBelt.com
1) A ratchet style belt that adjusts every ¼ inch with 32 different sizing options. This means no holes and a perfect fit every single time. Adjust the belt throughout the day or week as your weight fluctuates.
2) Built to last a decade. The belt is made from 100% Italian Genuine Leather and the buckle is constructed from Zinc Alloy. The durability and quality far surpasses other adjustable belts. See the side by side comparison below for details
3) More affordable than other adjustable belts. A perfect fitting belt shouldn't cost twice as much as a regular holes belt. Our prices are guaranteed to be at least $20 cheaper than other adjustable belts.
4) Customization and personalization. A belt may be a wardrobe accessory but it still should reflect your personality and interests. Add your favorite college/sports logo, artwork, flag, or anything else to personalize the buckle and belt.
5) Interchangeable buckles. All ZipBelt buckles use the same ratchet system. Easily swap out a buckle for another while keeping the same colored leather belt. ZipBelt is taking accessorizing to a new level.
ZIPBELT IN THE PRESS AND BLOGS
ZIPBELT WILL BE SOLD IN THE MISSIONARY MALL STORES!
The ZipBelt buckle locks firmly into place on each of the 1/4 inch grooves on the inside of the belt for a perfect fit when feeding the belt through. It works just like a zip tie, hence the name ZipBelt, except it can be loosened when pressing on the lever to release the lock and pulling the belt away from you to your right. See the ZipBelt in action in the photos below or the video above.
The ZipBelt is now available with 3 different belt buckles and 3 different colored leather belt straps depicted in the images below. More buckle styles and belt colors will be added when we meet our IndieGoGo goal and expand the ZipBelt product line.
Traditional belts never have enough size options with only 5 holes or 5 sizes. The ZipBelt adjusts every ¼ inch with 32 different sizing options. In actual waist sizes we can currently offer US Men's sizes 28 - 55 inches. When we showed the ZipBelt to several of our friends, we had the same resounding reaction about sizes - "It's exactly what I needed - a belt that fluctuates as my weight fluctuates for a perfect fit every time."
In the near future, we will have smaller and larger sizes as we continually expand the ZipBelt product line.
The ZipBelt allows customers to customize belt buckles and leather belts through personalized images, logos, and text. We currently are the ONLY adjustable belt company that offers customization. We've already secured a partnership and agreement with the NCAA, NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, MLS, and more to add your favorite sports team logos on the ZipBelt buckles.
Also we're partnering with Universities across the USA to allow mascots to be placed on the face of the buckle. Create any high resolution artwork, send us a vector file of the artwork, and we'll engrave it on the buckle or leather belt strap. It's that simple and it's what sets us apart from the competition! *(See Disclaimer at the bottom of this page)
If you order a customized ZipBelt, we will send you a survey at the end of the Indiegogo to get your info and image and get your customization started.

We've already had a couple test runs of the ZipBelt manufactured and shipped to us and have had an overwhelming response from the community to produce more. Your support will help us to secure the minimum order quantity set by the factory as well as to have the items shipped to us within 1 week of manufacturing completion. We want to make sure that these belts are in all of our Indiegogo supporters' hands before Christmas (in the USA only). As already noted, the product has been designed, developed, manufactured, and fully tested. Packaging has also been completed as well and shipping has been secured through FedEx. Customs has also been ironed out as we've received a couple shipments of the ZipBelt.
Our factory can produce up to 10,000 belts per month, so we believe that we will be more than ready to fulfill all orders on IndieGoGo . The factory will manufacture all of the belts, package them, and label them according to size. They will then ship it to us by FedEx express shipping to Los Angeles, which will then clear customs and be shipped to our headquarters in Utah. As all ZipBelts will be packaged in an individual gift box and labeled by size and color, we will then ship it directly to YOU, our loyal Indiegogo backer.
- The belts and buckles are designed. Prototypes were made and tested. Now the belts are ready for the first production run.
- A partnership with a reliable manufacturer has been formed. Shipping times and costs have been tested.
- The "engraving" customization has been tested and perfected.
- The ZipBelt website has been setup to take additional direct orders once the Indiegogo is complete.
- Negotiations with local and online distributors have begun and will hopefully be solidified during the Indiegogo.
This is where you come in and how you can help. Your pledges will directly go toward expanding the available ZipBelt buckle designs and belt colors, help design and manufacture a ZipBelt for women, and pay for the the machine that will print customized designs on the face of the buckle and on the leather belt.
After the Indiegogo campaign, the various styles of ZipBelt will likely retail for $15-25 more than the Indiegogo price. We believe in rewarding loyal supporters by giving them a superior product and saving them money.
Thank You SO much for the support! We're positive you will love your
