Sizing Chart
Nickel Smart Belt Sizing Guide - If you have questions, please call us! 704-947-1917
This sizing chart will work on Nickel Zero® belts too.
Most of our belts are sized from the buckle fold to the middle hole. A 34” belt will have a center hole at 34” and two holes on either side of the center spaced 1” apart each. A 34” belt can be worn as small as 32” and as big as 36”.
  • 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 34” from buckle fold to the hole you use most; then order a 34” belt. This will give you a belt with 2 holes either side of the hole you use most.
  • Still unsure of your size? We are here to help! Please feel free to email us at or call 704-947-1917 during normal business hours M-F 9am – 4pm Eastern Standard Time and we can help you.   

Meteorite ID™ accurately detects even trace amounts of nickel. It's sensitive enough to detect the presence of free nickel at a level as low as 10 ppm. About 95% of meteorites contain nickel, so specimens that do not test positive are likely not meteorites.

It's quick and simple - you'll see test results within seconds. A pink-red color indicates nickel and warrants further laboratory testing for positive identification. The squeezable 0.5oz bottle is easy to use and is sufficient for 200 tests.

This is a single bottle of ready-to-use dimethylglyoxime (dmg) spot test for nickel. The nickel test is pre-mixed and pre-measured for both accuracy and convenience. This reduces mess and inaccurate test results. Meteorite ID is safe and easy to use and It will not harm metal items.

Directions: Dab two drops of Meteorite ID on a cotton swab. Rub the specimen firmly for 15-30 seconds with the swab. A pink-red color on the swab indicates nickel. Make sure the surface of the specimen is clear of any dirt or debris. Do not reuse the swab.

To demonstrate a positive test, test a nickel coin. It contains 25% nickel and will turn the swab pink (nickel is detected).

Shipping Notice: Meteorite ID contains a flammable liquid and must be shipped via Surface Mail Only; it requires ORMD labeling to ensure it is not shipped via air. These precautions can add to delivery times.

Disclaimer: This method only tests for the presence of nickel and does not necessarily indicate the sample is, in fact, a meteorite. Further analysis by a professional assay lab is required to positively identify a meteorite. This test helps eliminate objects that lack the presence of nickel, which will most likely NOT be meteorites.
