Tool Belts


Proper sizing is one of the most important considerations in the purchase of a lineman's tool belt. An improperly sized belt is uncomfortable and may cause an accident or injury.

Bashlin tools belts are measured by the "D" size, which is the distance between the heels of the D-rings.

All linemen's tool belts must be ordered according to the "D" size.

To Find Your "D" Size

  1. 1. Locate the point where the heel of the "D" ring should rest. As the photo illustrates, this is approximately 4" down from the top of the hip bone.
  2. 2. Begin to measure from this point. Measure around the buttocks to the same point on the opposite side.

When a properly sized tool belt is worn,the D-rings will point nearly straight ahead and the tongue adjustment will be in the center holes as shown inn Photo 3.

To properly size the Padded Rest-A-Back tool belts, add 2" to your standard "D" measurement.
