How to wear a rubber Belt

A rubber belt will be one of the best pieces of equipment you can invest in. When worn correctly you will eliminate what we call "belt shift" belt shift, is when your weight belt slides around on your hips and in some cases slides of your hips. A rubber belt will expand and contract to the water pressure when diving, and will constantly grip onto your wetsuit.

See below for correct fitting of your rubber weight belt.

1 Tighten your belt onto your hips, if you put it around your stomach then it will squash your diaphragm, and restrict your air intake.

2 Gather your excess belt and fold as per picture.

3 Fold excess rubber belt, and slide into the belt which is around your waist.

4 Leave enough belt sticking out so you can safely grab it if you have to release your belt in an emergency.
If you need to put more holes in your belt, you can punch a hole, ensure the hole is round so the belt wont split. You can buy a small hole cutter from most hardware stores.
