Not being satisfied with the sturdyness of other belt clamp options, here's another.
(Main photo doesn't include the clamp block, but it is in the scad/stl.)
This part assumes that your belt is a 1/4" MXL, and that the teeth face up. Adjust as desired in the source. The scad renders two parts -- called Upright and Top -- which you clamp together to hold the belt. Holes are intentionally tight, but there are constants to let you open them up if you'd like. I've minimally tested it, please send/publish improvements.
2x M5x15 (or longer) cap screw (McM 91290A231)
