This is for you to determine as to where you will start punching the first hole on the belt

Tip: As you can see the width of our leather belt hanger is much slimmer than the usual belt we have for our pants and jeans.

2. Punch the first hole.

When you punch the hole, use a napkin beneath your leather to minimize damage.

3. Make 1-inch apart marks for the next holes.

Go ahead and punch them as well, still putting a napkin underneath.

4. Cut out your belt tip.
