We are here to help you achieve your goal! And trust us, it really isn’t as hard as it might seem. Even though nickel is found in many metallic products, we are here to walk you through the easy steps to becoming nickel free for the new year!
Step One is to become a nickel detective! Use Nickel Alert™ to accurately test all your metal items, so you will be able to replace those items, or protect yourself from any nickel that is detected. Nickel Alert will detect even minute amounts of nickel in metal, so this step should be your number one building block to avoiding nickel for life.
Once a metallic item has been identified as containing nickel, there are several choices: discard, replace, or provide a protective barrier between the metal and your skin. For small items, a good solution is to use Nickel Guard™, which has been clinically proven to provide safe and effective protection from nickel. Nickel Guard has been formulated without harsh chemicals including formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate, so it will not cause secondary skin reactions. Nickel Guard can be easily used on items such as eyeglass frames and some jewelry.
If the offending item is a belt buckle, rest assured that NoNickel has a large selection of nickel free belt buckles which can be used to replace those which contain nickel. Looking for an even easier solution? Replace the belt! We are proud to offer the world’s largest collection of Certified Nickel Free™ belts, guaranteed for life to never test positive for nickel! Most of these belts are handcrafted in the USA, with high quality leather straps and nickel free buckles. If you’re looking for a belt that will last a lifetime, why not take a look at the Nickel Free Titanium Wide Pin Black Belt which is a popular style that now comes in handcrafted full grain leather with a titanium wide pin buckle.

We look forward to working with you for years to come and welcome your comments and suggestions!
Most of our belts are sized from the Buckle Fold to the Middle Hole. A 36” belt will have a middle hole at 36” and two holes on either side of the center spaced 1” apart each. A 36” belt can be worn as small as 34” and as big as 38”.
There are several options to determine your ideal belt size.
The ideal way is to measure your waist through your belt loops. This measurement is the size of belt you should purchase (i.e. if you have a 34” measurement, order a 34” belt).
An alternative option is to measure your old belt from the Buckle Fold to the Hole you use. If your belt measures 38” from buckle fold to the hole you use most; then order a 38” belt. This will give you a belt with 2 holes either side of the hole you use most.
