Belt stretchers


Three Foot Johnson

Recommended Posts

As we age, weight gain plagues many of us, and the comfortable old rig just doesn't fit anymore. Or maybe something you picked up at a yard sale or swap meet is just almost there, but not quite. What have you done to stretch your gun belt(s)? My old B-Western rig is in the same boat now, but I need to come up with something a bit classier than these three. :P

Get a piece of tongue, and some Chicago screws. Take the last three holes of the new piece of tongue and using the Chicago screws screw it into the first three holes of the original belt tongue, and depending on how long you made your new piece of tongue, your belt is now three or four inches longer.

The problem with lengthening the hole strap and/or buckle strap is the belt at the hole strap end is no longer long enough to slip through the loop on the buckle end, AND it has the effect of moving the holsters more to the rear, which is ungood.
