Default Looking for a pants belt that will pass security checks....

No matter how small a belt buckle I wear it always sets off the alarms in airport security. I am looking for a pants belt that will pass security checks....

I have tried several travel stores and travel web sites but everything seems to have a metal buckle.

I know I could use a rope but I would like something a little more modern. Elastic waistbands are also a compromise but I would really like a belt so I can hang my cell phone and PDA. Any ideas?

Do a Google search on Airport Security Belt Buckle and you will find a couple of sources that sell them.

Take care,

Why go through all that trouble...just let it beep and they'll know it's your belt once they pass the scanner over it.

my hubby always sets off the alarms--can't really figure out why other than his belt buckle--last time he flew--he ended up taking off the belt--then passed thru fine.--
i'm so thankful for the security tho--it may be a little inconvienent for some but the peace of mind is so worth it (now if we can stop those threatening lasers)

take your buckle and turn it flat when walking thur the detector. this works I've done it.
