How to shortening a belt on your own.

1. Choose the Right Length for You: Start by selecting the belt length that suits you best.

2. Subtract the Buckle Length: From the selected belt length, subtract 4.5 cm (the length of the buckle). For example, if the chosen belt length is 90 cm, subtract 4.5 cm to get 85.5 cm. Then, align a tailor's tape measure to the middle hole of the belt and measure out 85.5 cm. Mark this spot with a pen or something sharp.

 3. Cut the Belt at the Marked Spot: Use large scissors or a utility knife to cut the belt at the marked spot.

4. Unscrew the Buckle: Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the buckle.

 5. Mark a Hole: Align the piece with the hole against the cut end of the belt and mark the spot clearly with a screwdriver.

6. Place something underneath for support and use the screwdriver and a hammer to punch a hole first from one side, then the other. Ensure the hole is adequately sized.

7. Reattach the Buckle: Follow the instructions shown in the picture to reattach the buckle, then screw everything back together securely.

8. Check the Hole Size: Ensure the hole is similar in diameter to the one in the cut-off part. For better results, you might consider heating the screwdriver briefly on a gas stove to make piercing easier. However, this step should be approached with caution to avoid burns or material damage.

9. Verify the Belt Length: In this case, check that the belt length is 90 cm, measured from the middle hole to the end of the buckle, ensuring it's the desired length.
