    unable to figure out a simple belt buckle

    any help would be life saving, Thanks in advance.

    I'll see if I can put a couple of pictures up for you tomorrow. It is very simple once you see it.

    This first set of pictures showes how one end of the betl goes through the ladder lock on the buckle.

    Shown front and back,with the webbing loose show you can see the path it takes. Then with all the slack taken up.

    The next two pictures show how the other end of the belt passes through the buckle. Shown with the belt tab open and closed.

    With the tab closed it should be clamping onto two layers of belt webbing
