Hi I built your belt straightener. One question, how do your tie wrap the ends that are backwards?

The two ends do not have the cogs of the belt facing each other to lock tight.

Great solution, simple.

Hey Steve,
Since the belt tension force is at a right angle to the zip tied end, not a lot of force is required by the zip tie to prevent slippage. You can simply pull a zip tie tight around the belt end and that will be sufficient. If you were really worried, you could loop the belt back on it's own cogs and zip tie it to itself.
