Newcastle, Australia, October 2, 2014 –- A new clothing belt built on snowboard technology will hit the fashion slopes as of October 13. The engineer-designed ClickerBelt incorporates a black binding strap and ratchet similar to those found in snowboard bindings and literally “clicks” in place, hence its name: ClickerBelt.

Snowboarding inspired both the belt’s buckle technology and its material. Like a snowboard binding, it’s very easy to use. Simply feed the ladder strap into the ratchet and crank the lever until the belt is the desired tightness. To release, lift the lever and pull. The belt strap is made from Polyurethane (extremely strong and flexible, waterproof and durable). The ratchet is made of aluminum and steel.
