Choosing a Padded Hip Belt

More Precise Part Numbers for Better Fit

Bodypoint's new padded hip belt part numbers put you in control for a more reliable belt fit. For those used to our old part numbers, here's a chart showing old and new "total padded length."

Or just click here and a wizard will guide you all the way to the right part number!

An HB205, as before, is a 2-point center-pull push button belt. But the three digits after the hyphen, like M46, now show webbing size (S, M or L) and total padded length. Sizing is shown in this chart:

So how do you know what size to choose? Measure in three simple steps:

When fitting a padded belt, first determine the mounting point and angle as shown here. It only takes a minute.

Once you know the mounting point and angle, use a soft tape measure to determine the total padded length you need, the part of the belt that is up against the body in front of the chair, as shown in this video.

Then you can select the belt closest to the padded length the user needs. An HB205-M46 has webbing of 1.5 inches and a total padded length of 46 cm. Here's the conversion to inches for each total padded length.

Cm Inches
32 12.5"
36 14"
38 15"
40 15.75"
46 18"
62 24.5"
82 32"
92 36"

As before, A1 is a Flat-Mount™ + FrameSaver™ clamp, A2 is a Cinch Mount™ + FrameSaver™, B1 is the Flat-Mount™ only, and B2 is the Cinch-Mount™.
