Rings and loops: functionality and differences

26 Mar, 2024 | News

Plasticrings and loops are common elements in clothing accessories, particularly in belts and backpacks.

Their presence, however, is not only aesthetic, but also contributes to the practicality of the objects on which they are placed. For each of these categories, then, there are different functionalities and types, which make them different from each other and suitable for certain uses.



  • Functionality: the rings on a belt play a crucial role in adjusting the length and ensuring that the belt stays securely in place. In addition, they can connect two belts, attach carabiners or braces and can be used in a variety of sectors including military, sports, security and medical
  • Type: they can be rectangular, round, in the form of reducers, D-rings and sewable loops. They are normally produced in nylon and can come in different sizes: 12, 15, 20, 25, 28, 30, 40 and 50 mm
  • Differences: the rings must be capable of bearing certain loads.
