    OK, I couldn't quite get a grip on it but maybe with some finer nosed pliers. I'll let you know how it goes!

    Sorry I know this is a really old thread. Is this an option when the belt has rivets rather than screws - a la Ace Western belts? This is still something a shoe repairman should be able to do, correct? @Gus any experience here?

    They will usually cut it to the right length then sew/stitch it rather than use rivets.

    Thanks @Gus ! But opening the rivets isn’t a problem?

    A @NOBD sighting! Do you have the original photos for the opening post of this thread, or are they lost to time?
