I’ve purchased many products over the years including belts, socks, and a set of wallets though the Kickstarter. I’m always impressed with the quality and loved the transparency we experienced through the Kickstarter campaign. While it took longer than hoped to receive the wallets, I found myself excited to see the updates and learn more about the process.
I haven’t had the opportunity to learn as much about the process you went through to develop and produce the socks and belts, and would love a closer look at the talent and hard work that went into these products.

I use the Grip 6 with the leather cover.

It is Superb.

What I’m waiting for is say, a ‘Grip 10’, or even a ‘12’. As everything I have is credit card sized – eg Bank Account Card(s) Health Care Card, License, Transport Card, and on and on, and on, I’d like the ease of just pressing the lever to get all of them, instead of transferring some between the Grip 6 and the leather at times. It seems everything here in OZ is going to the card size, as I’m pretty sure it is elsewhere

This is Not a complaint, just a request for something that would be Even More useful than the current Grip 6

It is, the Grip 6, a Superb Product. As for Belts, well, I’ve got to sort out my ever changing waistline, before I finally get belts from this Great company.

I love the quality, fit, feel, and look of my GRIP6 belts! And I love your commitment to quality and in-house production. Keep up the great work!

For an episode, I’d love to hear how you select the materials to use, how they’re sourced, and the process you go through in selecting vendors and distributors. And any related glory or horror stories would be fun to hear!

Love the products over here in the UK, I even had a special one made of my late fathers signature and fingerprints that turned out amazing as a tribute to him and I wear it with pride. Britni worked amazingly with me and we you delivered a fantastic product, and I even got my brother a matching belt tribute to our father.
Have you ever thought of doing some collaborations with someone like Disney as you could probably manage an amazing 50th anniversary WDW product with their Ear-idescant colours? Also, have you tested out other shapes like circles or ovals etc? looking forward to what other products you announce to match my many belts and wallet! thanks

I own three of your belts and cannot recommend them highly enough. Stellar products, quality build, and deceptively simple design.

The mark of a new companies growth is not how many new products it brings to market, but how many times it says no to a product. I would like to hear about your decision making process for new products, and of course, for changes in existing products.

What a great engagement forum! i received my first, two Grip6 carbon fibre belts sometime in mid Jan. ‘22 which I finally ordered in Nov. ’21. It took me more than three years to finally order one due to the exchange rates, potential shipping delays, and local taxes. The 2021 Christmas’ discount helped quite a bit, so there I went ordering two.

I’m sure a lot of people from the other side of the world know how great the Grip6 belts are, and those very same problems could well be hampering them to place an order. Would there be a plan to have, say regional fulfillment centers, so it’ll be faster (and cheaper) for delivery?

Great to see how your made in USA products come to fruition! So many people now days have little idea the amount of work it takes to create any product, and the skills and tools needed to do so. Can’t wait for more episodes!

Love the belts and the Grip6 name was all it took to back the wallet Kickstarter. The wallet is the best I’ve had and I love it too. I have a pair of the ankle socks but can’t wear them…my feet are too big. Have you thought of doing some kind of buckle storage? I’ve got more buckles than straps. Also, biweekly is the same as fortnightly. Twice a week would be semi-weekly. Semi is twice per and bi is once every two so semi-monthly is twice a month and bimonthly is every two months.

Great Initiative. As another Perth Australia G6 user, I too was a bit put off on my initial purchase due to the freight and exchange rate. Once I did purchase, I haven’t looked back and use the belts everyday.

My Question – In business and life, the biggest lessons are learnt from failures rather than successes. What has been your biggest failure to date, and what did you learn from it/ what can others learn from it.

Almost best belt ever, the reason I can’t wear it thru TSA flying, I have to use a old Velcro belt, Come up with plastic buckle to use on the plane the metal buckle can be swapped at the other end.

I am one of the lucky Americans that work making an American product quartz surfaces. The truck I drive for them has the flag prominently displayed . I love to support others making it in America.

Another idea is to create buckle to slide a medallion into.

Good belt to wear while fighting Dunlap’s disease. I

Great idea! Been a big fan of your belts since 2019 when I happened upon a FaceBook ad and never looked back! As I’m in Perth, Western Australia, the exchange rate can be a real bummer sometimes, but your regular sales and big discounts soften the blow! I can’t wait to see what stuff you feel are failures!

My question to you would be, how do you get the colours on to the buckles and what sort of colours do you feel might be too “out there” for general consumption and would you ever consider doing bespoke colours in the future?

Love my Grip6 belts and have thrown all my old belts away. The socks are the best I have ever worn. I don’t have one of your wallets yet but based on your other products I bet they are top notch. Loved the video and would like to see products being made in future episodes.

Big fan of Grip 6 style, but an even bigger fan of the “Made in the USA” ethos. My question is how that mind set has affected your supply lines in these times? Have you seen greater stability in your supply chain as a result of sourcing materials in the USA? I hope the answer is yes, but am very curious to hear your thoughts on the subject.

Love the products you all have made. I’m surprised at how actually reasonable your prices are for the quality of work. Maybe you could explain how G6 determines pricing for products, considering competition? (Is the reasonably low price just “from the heart” or is there actually a catch to it?). Can’t wait to hear about how this company started off. I believe one very unique angle of this series, which may be explained in an episode, is how involved your families are in the company (spouse, children and/or both). Do they happen to have first dibbs on testing newly designed products for quality control? Keep making spectacular products!

Long time buyer, first time commenter. Are you all looking at creating a multi pack of just buckles? I have enough webbing straps, but would love to expand my buckle collection while attempting to save a little coin. Thank you for making a product right here in the US! I am constantly telling people I come in contact with about the brand.

Love Grip 6 products. Got my first belt about 6 years ago after listening to a Dave Ramsey episode. Great products made we great materials, I have many belts and straps, the wallet etc. The product is so hard not to share with your friends and loved ones. Our golf 4-some has a tradition the American flag buckle for our tourneys. Keep taken care of people, love you guys.

Great vid and initiative. I’m all the way down in Melbourne Australia. The Grip6 belt is my everyday belt and I’ve not had an issue with it and no signs of wear. Wonderful. My only issue is the exchange rate and the additional cost to get the product to Au! Not much you can do about that I suppose. I’d like to know more about the process for developing new products. How are the decisions made to proceed with a concept and ultimately is there a single persona who makes the call to proceed?
Thanks and keep up the good work.

I have purchased several of your belts and buckles as well as about 2 dozen of your socks. They are all GREAT! Many have been given to family and friends. Your belts are the first belts I have to be both functional AND comfortable all day. For the last 40+ years I’ve tried dozens of sock brands and styles. I’m done looking for socks. Grip6 is my choice! They are the best I’ve ever worn…..anytime of year. Yes they are more expensive than many others but I proudly support MADE IN THE USA!

My question is this: Do you have any other products planned? I realize you may not be at a place yet to share specifics if you do have plans so a simple yes, no, or possibly will suffice.

Thanks for all you do.

I told my brother about your belts and he made one out of titanium and showed the process on YouTube! Someone at GRIP6 saw it and reached out to him and sent him some belts. My brother mentioned how challenging it is to work with titanium vs. aluminum. What special considerations or machine modifications did you have to make when switching from aluminum to titanium?

Your initial goofy promo ads are why I am a Grip6 customer. I’ve watched many of your informative online videos. My belt is 3 yrs old, still so durable. It may never wear out! I look forward to your 2022 fortnightly updates. Thank you for such an innovative, entertaining Made in America company.

We appreciate your simple packaging but would like it better if the box was marked with belt length. You ship very quickly and we would love to see your inventory and order filling in the shipping dept. Is this in the works? Keep smiling!

Fun concept guys! It’s going to be cool to see the behind the scenes on my favorite belts.
Would recommend either fewer and smoother transitions, or a fixed camera setup. The fluid nature of the camera work and the frequent, quick transitions can be a little disorienting. Detracts a little bit from what promises to be awesome content!

I have two belts, two buckles, and a wallet, and I bought my best friend and my brother a belt and buckle set.

We love all really like the product. I do think the spring on the wallet needs further development, nonetheless.

It would be great to know when a surplus for your newer designs (buckles) comes out, as they are always sold out.

Hi! I’m from Malaysia and am a proud owner of 3 sets of belts and buckles. They are more expensive than most belts and buckles that I know of in the stores over here but they are worth it! I have not worn any other belts since I bought my first Grip6 belt and buckle set 3 years ago when my wife and I visited our daughter in the US. Now, I have been wearing them with my daily work clothes and weekend casual wear. Many of my friends and colleagues have noticed and I am always happy to tell them about Grip6 belts and buckles! Looking forward to viewing all your videos fortnightly!

Gidday all the way from Auckland, New Zealand.

I remember seeing my first Grip6 add on YouTube such a long time a go and thinking I really want one of those buckles, but the cost of getting it shipped to NZ was quite expensive at the time so it put me off for a while. I did bite the bullet and shell out to get a 3 buckle set and they have been awesome and well worth the extra cost I paid back then to get them all the way down to NZ.

So my question to you is are you working to expand your brand outside the US as I know a lot of people in NZ that I’ve told about your products that would love to see them being sold locally as well. Also keen to see an episode on how your distribution works as well.

Keep churning out the great products.

My Grip 6 belt that I use for daily work wear has developed a spot that the buckle always likes to go to when I wear it, Kind of a groove. If I want to snug it up a little it just returns to the same spot. How can I restore the web to a smooth condition and get rid of the little groove from the spot the buckle lays in?

I have only purchased the socks so far. I loved them, soft, well made, but only one drawback.. I should have ordered a size larger. One email and I have replacement socks one size larger headed my way with a return postage slip enclosed.. with most companies, I’d be stuck with socks a size too small.. and I got the email within 24 hrs.. love the product, love the customer service.. it’s a safe bet I’ll be a returning customer! ❤️

Has Grip 6 ever thought about having a Create Your Own or Design your own Buckle or product station or I guess a better would be customization center like Oakley has online? Just thinking that take all the designs you have currently and products and give your customer a creative freedom and make it.
I have a Grip 6 wallet and leather wrap and a couple of screws on the thumb hole stock are coming loose and have come out a couple of times. Where can one go to find the tool used to fix it or what is the next step to having this fixed?

Belt, wallet, and sock owner here. Can you explain how government overregulation makes your business more difficult? For example, I saw a video about a cookie company that had to send a sample of EVERY batch of cookies to the state lab for testing. For big companies it isn’t a big deal since they make massive batches, but the small baker couldn’t do that so had to spend time and money doing more. I think most people don’t fully comprehend what makes domestic manufacturing so difficult and expensive.

As part of your wallet Kickstarter, I saw the production process from start to finish. What impressed me most was how you took the “failure” of version 1.0 and the accompanying financial hit, admitted the shortcomings of the product, then went about fixing them. It was nice to see your transparency throughout the process; we saw your struggles as well as successes. My question, why does some of your advertising contain profanity if you are a family-oriented business (“guarand_mntee”)?

I love your products, I’m interested in simplicity that effectively works. And a sucker for innovation. I still remember watching your old ads and it got me sold with a solid build for a belt that works and even last a lifetime. I loved that concept so much so I didn’t mind having it shipped all the way to our country. Then came your wallet series, I just had to get it and even bought another one as a gift. The concept of bringing back “American made” resonates pride and good old days of quality products. Thanks for the sticker by the way! I proudly wear the product badge on my truck!

My ask for this upcoming video is, with the product lineup of belts, wallets and then socks, what’s up next in your secret lab for us to look forward to and try?

Grip6 saved the day for me when seeking to find a secure belt that would lay flat against me. I love its unique buckle design. Although I don’t usually wear this belt for show, it is attractive enough to do so should I decide to. I appreciate the quality of Grip6 and am looking forward to more of your videos. I was wondering if your company would ever consider using your belt closure method on other types of products. Thank you.

I bought my son a belt from you, and I think he really likes it (once he delved into wearing it). At first I was like, no more emails… but watched the video and am intrigued… so will watch all “fortnightly.” However, as a former editor, biweekly does not mean 2x a week OR every other week. Biweekly means every other week; semiweekly means twice a week!

What is your biggest flop? The one that seemingly had the most potential, that you were most excited about, that you spent the most prototype money and time on… that just fizzled. And why do you think it fizzled?

I have been in to your storefront at your factory location, and I was impressed with the quality of service I was given, as well as the quality of your products. I have a belt (black strap, River buckle – my daily driver), and I’ve bought one for my wife and each of my 4 kids, as well as some I’ve given as gifts to extended family. I also have a wallet (blue with black jacket, no loop) that I enjoy very much as my daily driver. I like to geek out over your products when I see someone else rocking a Grip6 belt, or when they ask about mine. I also love your commitment to keeping your labor force happy and domestic. I’d like to see more products in my favorite color (Royal Blue), like the River buckle, and I’d be excited to see more clothing, like jackets/coats, t-shirts, pants with lots of pockets, and even shoes. I imagine a pair of Grip6 shoes or boots being the last pair I ever need to buy.

Enjoyed the intro! Noticed that some employees at the beginning of the video were wearing their masks, but later, the remainder were not masked, and I wondered why.
I would like to see what you do for the quality control for your products and also what your challenges were as you ramped up your production lines for greater volumes.
Keep up the good work – I have been a Grip 6 belt wearer since you first started up and the same when you introduced the wallet. Love them both! Guess I need to try the socks, too!!
Peace,

I have bought a belt, 2 wallets and 12 pairs of socks. I would like to see how the socks are made. I live in Canada and like your products very much. Best wool socks I have ever owned.

You never stated where to specifically leave those questions. Are we supposed to do it here on the youtube video comments or on the website comments for these “In the Works” videos? Either way I’m doing both. Now that you have dabbled in the realm of clothing, are there any plans to expand to something else other than socks? Like maybe a high quality long sleeve shirt? Thanks.

Thanks for the peak behind the curtain, look forward to more. It will be very informative to see the challenges of USA manufacturing in the global marketplace. I bought one belt in November. Love the simplicity, look and lightweight buckle. Will be buying more.

Great Idea! I own three buckles and use them all the time. All of mine are my own design and I would very muck like to see a page on your web site displaying custom buckles (with approval of the designer of course). This would encourage others to come up with their own designs. Maybe make them available for purchase (with approval of the designer) and put the proceeds towards a special project or charity. I have said it before. Selling your products could be a great small business for vets (from home or a kiosk in a mall). One idea for everyone out there who buys your buckles. Take a cut out buckle and put a solid colour buckle behind it. Doesn’t increase the thickness by much and gives the wearer a whole new look. Imagine the Chrome 6 buckle with a red or black or whatever colour behind it.
I ordered a bunch of socks my son and his family (they are living off the grid) and I’m sure they will love them.

So this is an interesting concept and cant wait for the next. How about some hats and gloves, any time frame on adding those to the GRIP6 arsenal?

Great video and awesome concept, especially not shying away from the things that didn’t work so well. It’s refreshing to see a small business focusing on building talent, skill and equipment to keep manufacturing domestic. So, what’s the biggest hurdle that you’ve had to overcome in getting through your first 6 years?

My family loves all Grip6 products! I would love to learn how you guys build prototypes, and what machines you use the most.

I’m like everything about the belts especially the adjustablity since I am a growing muffin-man. Unfortunately, my belly gets a bit raw if my shirt comes untucked and there is direct contact between my muffin top and the belt. In the meantime, I’m trying to grow some callouses on my midriff.

I’m delightfully pleased you using the best of British words “fortnightly” Jolly spiffy ole boy, tally-ho. I do love your wool socks, most impressive. In the future are you planning to modify this product with a thicker upper ankle section, this would be great for hiking during the winter months for us blokes who wear shorts? A video on the making of socks would be most appealing, kind sir!! Cheers;-))

Products that are branded “Made in the USA” don’t always fully support the moniker, as the raw material used in the producr(s) creation are imported. Do you use USA made raw materials, or do you use raw materials sourced from outside the USA?

I am currently the owner of a Slide-Belt and really like it. I recently bought a Grip 6 for my Grandson and he loves it so much that he put his Slide-Belt in retirement. I am looking forward to your Grip Six, In the Works Series,maybe I to will become a convert.

Just received my first set of GRIP6 ankle socks this week….and I LOVE them…!! Very cool company…I can’t wait to find out more about yall. So grateful that you are committed to “MADE in the USA.” I don’t even know if the wool sock lends itself to the “no-show” style or not, but if they do, are you planning on making them in the near future? Thanks for what yall are doing. Keep it up…!!
