Klik Belts | Upgrade Your Belt

$73,303

Belts are an accessory worn everyday, yet they haven't been updated since their inception. Until now. Your belt should be a complimentary tool to your wardrobe, and function without question. Our aim is to present you with the world's strongest belt; one without holes, absolutely zero stretching, and a buckle that doesn't slip. With your support, we can give you the last belt you'll ever buy. 

Belts are a part of everyone's life.

We created this belt for individuals with a sense of adventure. Individuals who thrive on challenge and aren’t afraid to lead. Whether you're a mountaineer, executive, electrician, or creative, the fact is you probably wear pants, and you need a belt to hold them up. You put a lot of thought into choosing your shoes, haircut, and everything in-between, so why not pick a belt that looks good and is unquestionably secure.

Made using the strongest materials.

The buckles on Klik Belts are incredible. They are the only side release buckle that will not open under load. Klik Belts buckles are the strongest quick-release buckle in the world.  They were engineered in Austria, and made from aircraft-grade aluminum.  If you care about the technical stuff, the buckles are CNC machined, assembled, inspected, and packed in an ISO 9001 approved facility. Every buckle exceeds Mil Spec guidelines for dust / sand / salt water as well as CE, CSA, ANSI, and NFPA standards. (the engineers wanted us to say that, whatever that means…)

"What’s so striking about this belt is how satisfying it is to klik together.  It’s a visceral experience that feels incredibly secure. There's no way I'm giving this back!" -Product Tester.

Seriously, the buckles are awesome.

These little feats of engineering have been used in outer space, the front lines of battle... and Hollywood movies. The Avengers, GI Joe, Transformers, Prometheus, Blade and Total Recall are just a few. Once you hold a Klik Belt in your hands, you'll understand why we're so in love with them.

We towed a truck with one of our prototypes.

And it worked. Flawlessly. We did multiple tows, using the same belt. (in order to get different camera angles so the video would be awesome) Not only did the belt perform again and again, but we couldn't even see a kink in the fabric indicating that it had just pulled 4,000+ pounds, five times in a row. Klik Belts can tow a truck without slipping, breaking, or even showing wear, so they can probably hold up your pants.

A belt to last a lifetime.

Actually, that's false. Our Klik Belts will not only outlive you, we're pretty sure they'll be handed down to your heirs as well. Could this be the first belt in history to be listed in a will?

Rewards are fun too!

We created Klik Belts to be a functioning tool for everyday use. But, not only do they function as the world's greatest belt, they're also an amazing work of art. Artsy enough, in fact, to be made into a t-shirt. Your pledge helps us further our goal of bringing Klik Belts to life.

Now we need you to help make this project a reality.  We are raising funds and pre-selling our belts through Kickstarter so we can purchase materials at wholesale costs, as well as negotiate lower bulk pricing with our manufacturers. With your support, we can take the world's strongest, best made belt, and weave it through your waiting belt loops. Thank you so much!

Risks and challenges

After our project is finished, our biggest hurdle will be getting the buckles made in a timely manner. The lead time can be up to 8 weeks, but we hope to partner with our manufacturers to expedite that process, starting immediately after our goal is achieved. The belts will be manufactured in Oregon and we are all setup for order fulfillment. We have been fortunate to team up with a wonderful manufacturer that can make and ship individual belts. This will allow us the ability to offer unique custom options in the future. You should also know that our team has brought products to market before so we know what we are doing. We'll keep you updated throughout the manufacturing process!

We’re an industrious and curious group at Klik Belt, so we wanted to offer something fun and unique for this campaign; one of only 5 belts that have ever been to space. We’ll send your belt into near space on a high altitude “Space” balloon, but, we'll wait to do so until we know what color and size you choose. We'll record the whole adventure on a GoPro, and you’ll receive your “Space Belt” along with an 8x10 photo and the video.
