dip belt

what the frick how do i use the dip belt?
im so confused, every time i try and fasten it it just falls off ir the chain slackens and the weights rest on the ground.
every video ive seen is acting like its the simplest thing but i have no idea how to get it to work.

    Use a carabiner to shorten the chain. Problem solved.

    Before attaching the plate, pass the end of the chain through the clasp on the other side. So when you attach the plate the two ends will be pulled towards each other.

      The belt part should be put slightly higher in your lower back and the thinner belt part should be above your hips. So when the weight pushes down, it locks in place and doesn't slide.

      If the chain is too long then that's another problem entirely.

        Just make a loop with a fricking carabiner if its too long.

        does this look right? it feels pretty secure, but i feel like it cant be right since ive got the two carabiners touching to even get it tight around my waist, like it says one size fits all on the belt but i feel like it would just fall if i was even slightly slimmer, and i dont want it to accidentally fall when im at the gym doing dips

        just using my bag with some books in it since i dont have any plates at home...

          i'm also moronic and had to figure this out aswell, but you just do this

          Before attaching the plate, pass the end of the chain through the clasp on the other side. So when you attach the plate the two ends will be pulled towards each other.

          when you attach weights to it and (and shorten the chain if necessary), the chains pull the belt tighter, i'm a tiny 62kg manlet and a "one size" belt fit me, unless you got some rare XL sized one or something you'll be fine. infact it gets noticably tight when i use more than 15kg.

          i will draw it out for you on paint if you don't get how to do it

                YOU OPEN 1 CARABINER
                YOU PUT THE CHAIN (MAYBE YOU HAVE TO DETACH THE KARABINER FOR THIS FIRST), THROUGH THE WEIGHT HOLE

                THEN YOU TAKE THE CHAIN, GO *THROUGH* THE RING YOU DETACHED THE CARABINER FROM, THEN GO *THROUGH* THE OPPOSITE RING

                THEN YOU ATTACH THE CARABINER TO THE SIDE YOU FIRST DETACHED IT FROM (WITH THE WEIGHT ATTACHED NOW)

              actually i drew it wrong, but you will get what i mean, it doesnt matter. i think you just dont realize you can pull the carabiner through the rings as much as you want.

      This is it. But I pinched my wiener once when the chain slipped further and caught some skin between

    Take the chain in one hand
    The other side metal loop with the other
    >chain through the belt loop
    >chain through back through the weight
    >clip the chain back on the original side

        for some reason i cant get the chain stretching across my waist.... only way i can get it to sit tight is with the two sides of the belt almost touching like in

        i feel like i must be doing something wrong because im not short and havve a medium build, and yet it only seems to just barely fit me at maximum tightness.

          You're definitely a megafat or you bought a dip belt made for effete little asian men

            no its the opposite, i mean that ive got to tighten it up fully, like youd expect if an anorexic person tried to wear medium sized pants.

              Then get a smaller belt. They make different sized belts and it's likely the belt from your gym is an XL.

                no its a "one size fits all" belt from alphafit and i have a medium build...

                your problem in your pic is you attached 2 carabiners to the same ring, take the right carabiner off the right side, put the weight on the chain, then put the chain (with carabiner through the right ring, then the left ring, then attach it to the right ring.

                does this look right?

                That's not bad. What's your problem? Does it fall when you do dips? If it's secure and it's not too tight on the waist (it will be tight but not blood circulation cut off tight) then you're fine

                Looks ok but you should be able to run the chain back on your left ring a little smoother. Have the carabiner come out from you. Think you'll find it just moves and holds smoother.

        it doesnt form that triangle shape, instead the two sides of the belt are virtually touching around my waist...

    so basically it doesnt matter as long as the weight hangs near my knees and the belt is secure and doesnt fall down?

    wow i actually devoted my whole 1am-5am to fussing about this...
