Here is the brand story of FlyBuckle:

“Flybuckle is an aviation-inspired fashion accessory that encourages self-expression. We strive to minimize the impact on our environment by repurposing and upcycling industrial excess. Each Flybuckle is made of the same material used to produce commercial airplane seat belts. Every detail is authentic from the lift up metal buckle to the nylon webbing and high gauge thread used to create a sustainable experience. Because your belt should never put you on stand-by.

FlyBuckles have been available since 2013, and began when we realized that we shouldn’t have to discard parts and create more byproducts from the manufacturing process. We decided to create something fashionable that showed off our desire to make a positive impact and express our passion for reducing waste.” says company behind FlyBuckle.

FlyBuckle airplane belts are available in 5 amazing colours in Timemachine.fi. FlyBuckle belts has robust buckle and very strong nylon belt to minimize wearing in use.

This time we are showing and introducing the working principle of automatic belt. Automatic belt is very easy and handy to use because of ratchet mechanism. Ratchet mechanism enables to tighten belt easily and belt will be safely secured to your size. Opening of belt is also very easy to do, thanks to quick release lock.

Working principle of automatic belt is shown in following photos. Working principle is easy to understand, but we will still explain it here. The main features of automatic belt is its tooth rack and pawl mechanism. Tooth rack is located in inner side of belt. Pawl mechanism is located in buckle. Pawl is spring operated and its task is lock pawl to tooth rack so belt will not open by itself. Pawl mechanism can be seen in second photo. Pawl mechanism is installed by pin to buckle frame. Third photo shows how pawl is locked to tooth. Pawl is marked by red circle. Tooth shape enables that you can tight belt by pushing belt (tighten direction) through buckle , but pawl will not allow belt open without open locking mechanism. Locking mechanism can be easily open by turning locking lever show in fourth photo. Lever is marked by blue circle.

That´s it. Now you know how automatic belt works! 

Here is quick explanation how you can easily shorten your automatic belt for your size. It would be best when you are using belt that buckle would go approximately in the middle of tooth rack when measuring your waist. First put belt to your waist and check correct cutting place of belt. After this you can remove belt part from buckle by opening lever shown in fifth photo. Then cut belt from measured place and install belt back to buckle.
