What is Try Before You Buy?
Our Try Before You Buy program allows anyone to try our awesome SlideBelts free for a week! This 7-day trial begins once your belt has been delivered to you. During this period, we encourage you to try the belt on for size. Go ahead and wear that bad boy everywhere! If you're not fully satisfied, we will gladly accept returns with no questions asked. You will not be charged for the belt, as long as you initiate a return request within those 7 days.
How to return a Try Before You Buy purchase?
Easy! Just head on over to our Shipping & Returns page. To begin the return process, all you’ll need is your order number and the email address used during your purchase. Start by selecting which item(s) you’d like to return. From there, select “Try Before You Buy” as the return reason. Once completed, you will receive an email confirmation that your return request has been submitted on time. The last step is to mail that return back to us. Feel free to recycle any excess packaging or wrapping. Please note that a return will include a $4.99 restocking fee.
When does the try-on period start?
Your try-on period starts the day your order is delivered. We’ll send you an email reminder 48 hours before the seven days ends. If you have any issues, just send us an email at email@example.com.
How many items can I try at once?
You can try one item per order. Please note that we may limit the number of active Try Before You Buy orders you can have the same time.
Do I have to pay up front?
No. We ask for your credit or debit card information during checkout to make it easy for you to pay for anything that you’d like to keep, but it won’t be charged up front. Your card will automatically be charged 7-days after you’ve received your order.
What happens if I don’t keep anything I have ordered?
No worries at all, simply return the items back to us. Please refer to section “How to return a Try Before You Buy purchase? “.
Can I use a discount code on Try Before You Buy orders?
You sure can. Once you have chosen which item you would like to try, you can input a code to deduct from the final purchase amount.
Why does my bank account show “pending” once I’ve made my purchase?
You will not be charged for your Try Before You Buy purchase until 7-days after delivery. As is typical with standard orders, the bank will conduct a fund check on the account at the time of purchase, but no funds will be taken out immediately. This purchase will remain as pending, and will appear as pending within your open bank statement. Please note that this will not affect your credit score, and your funds will be readily available. If a return is requested before the 7th day, the pending amount will be removed from your account.
What is a SlideBelts brand ratchet belt?
It is a high-quality belt that allows you to freely adjust the waist size without the limitation of holes. Instead of holes, SlideBelts have multiple notches which are intricately sewn onto the inside of the belt. The buckle has an auto-locking lever that catches these notches or “teeth” and secures the belt at the desired length. This gives you over 30 precise sizing options. To release the belt, you simply lift up on the buckle frame and slide the belt off. Measurements are visible on the underside of our belts as a guideline for waistband sizes. Thus, all SlideBelts can be trimmed to your ideal length.
What is the difference between Full Grain Leather and Top Grain Leather?
Full Grain leather is the most durable and strongest of leathers. Full Grain comes from the very top layer of the hide, just below the hair, and contains all of the tightly-packed grain. Therefore, natural marks, scrapes, and scars are occasionally visible in the leather. Also, Full Grain leather will develop a rich patina as it ages. This is more obvious with lighter belt colors. The color will acquire more dimension and beauty as you handle it. In comparison, Top Grain will not develop a patina. Top Grain leather is the second-highest quality leather you can find. It is split from the top layer of the hide and then sanded. Top Grain is more durable and stronger than Genuine, but not quite as durable as Full Grain. Also, Top Grain is slightly softer in comparison to our Full Grain leathers.
What are your buckles made of?
The base metal of our buckles is a Zinc alloy. If you want to get technical, the alloy meets the chemistry requirements of UNS-Z-33520 for a Zinc Alloy 3 (AG40A). If you don't want to look up the material data sheet for that, it's mostly Zinc (~95%), with ~3-4% Aluminum and a whole bunch of other metals making up the remainder.
And, yes! There's nickel in there.
Are your buckles interchangeable?
Our buckles are interchangeable on belt straps of the same width, though we do not recommend changing buckles every single day as this wears the strap down much faster.
Do your buckles contain nickel?
Yes, our buckles have nickel plating.
How wide are your belt straps?
We offer three different belt widths - "wide" at 1-1/2", "standard" at 1-1/4", and "skinny" at 7/8".
What is your sizing guide?
Each belt includes instructions for cutting your belt to the correct length. On the back you will see sizes: 30", 32", 34",etc. Please cut two inches above your waist size. For example. If you are 32" you will cut at 34".
What does 'Up to 48”/44"' mean?
Uncut, our belt straps are made for sizes up to either a 44" or 48” waist size, depending on the belt. All of our belts are meant to be cut to fit your exact size. Cutting directions are included, and the sizing guide is embossed on the back of the leather.
My belt is too long, what do I do?
Each of our leathers is sent out full-length for a size 48" waist, with the exception of our black and mocha brown genuine leather belts. Black and mocha brown genuine leather belts fit up to a 44" waist size. All of our belts are meant to be cut down, so don't worry! A pair of kitchen scissors should be able to do the trick. There are embossed markings on the back to help show you where to make the initial cut. Your belt comes with a sizing guide explaining which marking you should cut at for a given size. If your belt is still a little long after you make your first cut, follow these steps:
Take off the buckle.
Measure 1/2" from the edge where the buckle was attached.
Cut the leather where you measured.
Optional - You can use some sewing scissors to trim any loose threads down.
Put the buckle back on.
Try the belt on.
If the belt is still too long, please repeat 1-6 again.
If you cut too much off, please see "What is your Exchange Policy?" under Orders questions.
I need a size 50”, is there any way to get that?
At this time, our belts will only accommodate a size 48". This is due to limitations of the hides from which our leather belts are made. We are looking into the possibility of offering longer vegan belt straps in the future.
What is the warranty on your belts?
We stand behind our belts and would like every guest to be happy with their SlideBelts experience. In keeping with this goal, we offer a twelve month limited warranty on all belts purchased from authorized retailers. Within this time frame, the warranty covers any defects in materials and workmanship. Warranty replacements will be shipped free of charge within the continental U.S. If you have any problems with your SlideBelts purchase and are not sure if the issue is covered by the warranty, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're happy to assist you in any way we can.
This warranty does not cover, for example: cosmetic damage, normal wear and tear, improper operation, or further size modification. For those types of issues, additional straps and buckles can be purchased separately HERE.
Where are your belts made?
With the exception of the Survival Strap, our belts, buckles, straps, and other product offerings are manufactured in Taiwan or China.
The Survival Strap is made in the USA.
All buckle engravings are done at our HQ in California.
What are Basement Belts?
"Basement Belts" are what we like to call our Factory Seconds. Factory Seconds are items that haven’t met our high-quality inspection standards due to a variety of aesthetic reasons. These aesthetic differences include but are not limited to: color variance, strap scuffs, stitching defect, scratched buckle etc. Because of this, we are listing them separately from their full-price counterparts at a discount to you. These aesthetic defects do not affect the functionality of your SlideBelt. Please refer to our Basement Belt return policy below should you experience issues with functionality.
Why won't my discount code at checkout apply to the Basement Belt in my cart?
Basement Belts are excluded from further coupons, discounts or special offers. If your cart contains both a Basement Belt and a full-priced item, the discount code should still apply to the full-priced item. See promotional-specific fine print for exclusions and further details.
Can I return a Basement Belt?
Please note we will not consider Basement Belts for returns or exchanges due to aesthetic reasons. Basement Belts are only eligible for returns or exchanges if there is a mechanical defect and the belt is not functioning properly. We are happy to assess return eligibility case-by-case within 45 days of original order date. Otherwise, all Basement Belts are sold "as is". Initiate a Basement Belt return HERE.
