Using a Mission Belt is easy. The tip of the belt inserts into the ratchet belt buckle, where a locking mechanism holds the belt in place from the back. You will hear the click, click, click sound of the belt as you find the perfect fit. Did you get it too tight? Don’t worry, just hold down the release lever and let out a notch or two. When you are ready to remove the belt, just press the small metal lever on the bottom of the buckle, and the belt slides right out.
