The Original Blue Chip Quick Release SUP Leash Waist Belt

Made by Blue Chip in our Surrey workshop

In 2014, we started our search for a suitable reliable quick release waistbelt that met our requirements for use in rivers, streams, fast flowing and white water. Having found nothing available, we decided to create our own Blue Chip Quick Release Waistbelt. We asked various manufactures for samples and soon realised that the only way to ensure and maintain the quality required was to make them here in our workshop where the quality can be guaranteed. Another great benefit of making them ourselves is that we can make any improvements to our design / materials instantly.

Original Blue Chip Quick Release Waistbelt - £15

  • Webbing:- we use a comfortable 50mm heavy duty Polypropylene webbing

  • VHV “very high visibility” day and night with silver white reflection giving a brightness of over 450cd(lx/㎡) Reflection visible at night from over 500m for increased safety.

  • Leash attachment:- we in build a colour coded leash anchor point on our belt

  • Buckle:- we use the proven and exceptionally strong "Fixlock" Cam Buckle which is both very easy to adjust and has a positive quick release. The design incorporates “high side walls” on the buckle, which guard against accidental release and snagging during the release operation 

  • Quick release toggle:- We use a long secure quick release toggle. Our 120mm release toggle gives you a positive grip so you can still choose to stay with your board if the situation develops and this becomes a safer option.

  • Construction:- we make the Blue Chip Quick Release Waist Belt here in our Surrey sail repair workshop. We use the same heavy-duty yarn that we use on our sail repairs. The “Dabond 2000 UVR polyester thread“ from Heminway & Bartlett is a bonded, twisted continuous filament polyester yarn resistant to UV and the marine environment.

Custom Sizing:- Our standard size range 70cm - 120cm (28” – 47”) and we advise trimming the belt to give approximately 15cm of loose belt after the buckle, too much loose webbing could become a snagging hazard. We offer a Free service to trim the belt to your size if you supply your waist measurement as shown in the image.
