These 1 inch belt strips measure 43 1/2 inches from the center hole to where you punch the buckle slot. Sometimes the blanks are longer. Therefore when you attach a regular buckle, depending on where you punch the buckle hole, it will fit up to a 44 inch waist or more. The belt blanks are run through a beveller machine to round the four corner edges. This takes 1/16 of an inch off the total width of the belt blank so it will slide easily through a 1 inch buckle opening. The 1 " belt blank measures 6 inches from the middle hole to the pointed tip. The seven belt holes are spaced 3/4" from center to center for lots of adjustment.
