    I've been having some stitching coming loose on the front inside portion of the belt. Been burning the loose threads with a lighter.
    Mine is the same. It's like the "pills" we used to get on the polyester shirts. I just burn them off with a lighter. I am going to check my screws for tightness though.

    Replacement screws and Allen wrench arrived over the weekend. The email to warranty@ nexbelt did the trick.

    That's the trade-off with New Technology. Hard to imagine needing replacement parts for a leather gunbelt. but no quarter-inch adjustability.

    Mental comfort of tried & true, or physical comfort tied to internet supply chain. I'll be traveling with a spare belt, I guess.

    Threads started coming loose on mine where the ratchet catches are. So I emailed them photos and got a response about 2 hours later asking for a shipping address. Good service in my eyes. This was yesterday.
    I have come to really like the ratcheting mechanism of the belt. It took a while to get the hang of it but once I did, I like it.

    It's really nice to be able to adjust when sitting down. :party29:

    Probably gonna send you a lighter...
    I have used a lighter on "pills" that form on the end that slides into the buckle but I think sundazes is talking about threads breaking around the ratchet teeth. I just took a look at mine and I have fuzz around the ratchet area (which a lighter cleans up) but no threads coming loose anywhere.

    A lighter is a great idea. The gas stove option that I defaulted to can be overkill.

    Gotta get me one of those.

    Does Nexbelt's warranty cover damage from "Dickey Do Disease"?

    If you're rockin' a Dunlap then maybe you need Nexsuspenders

    Well, anything with Mammary glands or a motor will soon give you problems. Including some things man made.

    Called Monday and receive the replacement belt today. Not too shabby. They are in Cali.
