Tether Tab

The Tether Tab™ was developed with safety and comfort in mind. “We were asked to create a system that could convert a traditionally belted pant into an adjustable waistband,” said Mike Gonzalez, CEO of XTENEX.  This request turned into the Tether Tab™, which is a soft ballistic nylon loop that is attached to a belt loop and then a Xi4.05 lace is attached and adjusted so that the person wearing the belt replacement can keep their pants in place without having a belt.

Safe, secure and worry-free replacement fastening system.

“The belt thing you sent is great!

We really like it because there is no way the patients would be able to tie these together to cause self harm…”
