Belly pinching. Ever notice how belt buckles pinch your precious navel? Or how about that belt that you love except when you've chowed down at your favorite Tapas bar? Gotta let it out another notch. Then you stand up and wait, maybe that was too much, now it's too loose! Embarrassing. Too tight. Too loose. Those one-inch notched belts just don't cut it for the perfect fit.
Grip6 Belts meet our stringent requirements for innovative and creative solutions for daily problems like the all-important keeping your pants on. They're also made in the U.S.A., from American-sourced components, just like Red Oxx Gear. So we took our groovy 'n unique "Radial" airplane engine graphic from one of our shirts and splashed it across the buckle and behold: a belt someone can "give you props" for!
Machined super-thin at only 2.85 mm thick from sturdy T6061 Block Aluminum, the Grip6 buckle won't bend, break, rust, or warp. Nor will it gouge your gut, it's smooth on front, top, bottom, and in back - no bumps, hooks or bulges. A gentle curve and it's low profile make the Grip6 the world's most comfortable belt buckle.
The handsome belt material is made from 1.5-inch wide high-strength nylon fiber weave. They even meted out an extra eight-inches in length "just in case". And no worries about where to stuff those extra inches (unlike the ones on your waist), since it's only 2mm thick, the belt will slip under and tuck into your pant loop and you won't even know the difference.
You'll love the infinitely adjustable feature of this tough, stylish belt. A belt so tough it can hold up to 2000 pounds - suspended.

Radial Aircraft Engines Trivia:
Called "radial" engines due to the placement of the cylinders firing in a radial, or star-like, pattern, most radial engines drive the propeller through the central crankshaft, making power more efficiently than any engine except rotary. Radial engines can also be easily cooled with air, as the propeller would push air past the cylinders. Air cooled engines were preferred during battle situations over water cooled, proving more reliable in the field under fire.
Prior to the First World War, radial engines were first developed by American engineer C. M. Manly in 1901 and appeared in Samual Langley's Aerodrome aircraft. By 1903, Jacob Ellehammer installed an air cooled five cylinder version in his triplane.
During the Great War war, both the Allied and Axis Powers used radial engines in their fighter and bomber airplanes. However the horsepower seemed limited and during the final year of the war inline and V mounted engines exceeded the radial engines perceived power limits.
By 1920 these limits were surpassed and the US Navy decreed they would only accept air cooled radial engines in their military aircraft. The radial engine dominated powering military aircraft on all sides during World War II.
Even tanks, specifically the U.S. Army's Sherman M4, utilized the radial engine's superb horsepower to weight ratio. Today, the radial engine lives on in modern propeller aircraft, including acrobatic planes and even miniature RC control aircraft.
