Do-It-Yourself: Webbing Suspenders

Share on Facebook Share on Facebook

Here's some reading for those who can't afford ready-made products and have no imagination to help themselves. Umm... That doesn't sound good but anyways, maybe someone will enjoy this.

It is possible, although unlikely, that the selection in the appropriate product category isn't just right for you. Maybe the surplus warehouses were empty, maybe the modern stuff was too expensive... Could be anything, we don't judge.

So let's make something ourselves. The model was made up and winged as we went so it's not really original or complicated. Don't expect us to register it or give it a fancy name. If you have better ideas about the content, feel free to add what you like to the shopping cart. Steal this idea and do whatever you want with it!

DIY webbing suspenders finished.

These are designed to fit the tallest person around but regular people can use the excess webbing length in the back to attach gear to the belt.

X-type without quick release

Cut the webbing into two equally long pieces and melt the ends. Now put the lighter and scissors away: they are no longer needed and someone could get hurt.

Weave both long straps through the 40 mm Tri-Glide and put one 25 mm Tri-Glide to each end. Attach the straps to the back and front of the belt. Attachment points are where you want them.

X-type with quick release

Cut two 30 cm / 12" pieces of webbing and melt the ends. Then cut the remaining webbing into two equally long pieces and melt the ends. Now put the lighter and scissors away: they are no longer needed.

Put one 25 mm Tri-Glide on each 30 cm piece and attach the female SR buckle to the front of the belt. The attachment point is up to you.

To finish, put 25 mm Tri-Glides on each long strap, weave them through the male SR buckle, and back through the Tri-Glide. Whether you want the SR buckle to lock the strap or not is up to you.
