I love the belt and the design is great! However, I’ve only used it once to deadlift so far and one of the nubs on the lever that is used to hook the belt together broke off because the lever on the belt is made up of some cheap material and not metal. Very annoying but still looks cool.
The levers are made up of steal. Very strong and durable. You just happened to get a bad one. I just shipped out a replacement lever for you.
