I'm a huge fan of the IronMind De Rigeuer dipping belt. It is light, very comfortable, wears well, and will support any load you can. Just make sure you double-pass the strap through the buckle.

I snapped my Maximuscle dipping belt with just 20kg on it last night, although I've used 30kg with it before. I didn't think that was a lot, but the clip itself has sheared.

Perhaps I could replace the clip with a karabiner or something from a climbing shop, but I wondered regardless can anybody recommend a strong one I can get in the UK please?

Length of chain + pool noodle + carbiner + some duct tape. About $20, tops.

I've been using an old style leather dipping belt for the past twenty years and have never had any problems with it. I've had 60 kg on it with no issues but you might want to try something more modern like the Ironmind belt -

Alternatively if money's tight you could get a leather belt from Powerhouse Fitness -

Thanks!

The one I had looked a perfectly decent leather one, but clearly the metal is of a shit grade.

The sensible option would be Shaf's chain idea, but I'm edging towards the delicious ironmind one which should last forever. That is unless an in between one is around that guarantees say 50kg.

I guess the problem is if you're quite snappy with chins or dips or whatever you exert more force despite not having a large 'weight' on it and it eventually weakens.

Pullum-Sports have a leather dipping belt for 20. They don't give any indication of what kind of load it can take but for 20 it might be worth a try -

Personally I think the Ironmind belt is a bit overpriced for what it is so I'd get this.

I think I prefer Spuds, actually.

A friend uses the belt squat thing from IM as a chin dip belt.

Opted for a cheap one for the time being for 15 as I'm skint. I still think the clip is the weakest point so not fussed about the leather, can't see nylon tearing apart. Will get that IM one when I have some spare dough.
