In the past, many belts would sag and move around while around the waist of an officer while they were engaging in a physical activity. Belt keepers wrap around the duty belt and trouser belt, this ensures that the belt stays in place, even when the officer is taking something from the belt or engaging in an altercation with a suspect. These belt keepers are up to 50% lighter than leather but with the same crisp professional appearance of premium leather. With the combination of light weight nylon and powerful button snaps these keepers give the ultimate in performance and durability. The keepers and the METAL KEY HOOK give a high level of resistance to the daily knocks, scuffs and abrasions of duty use. They are less work to maintain that "inspection day" look! Easily cleaned with only mild soap and water. Washing with disinfectant soap or bleach solution will handle contamination problems easily. This makes them great for correctional institution duty. This set is completely hand washable, fade, scratch and weatherproof resistant.
