I make the loop at 1 3/4 inches but if you have a special request like a 2 inch loop that is no problem. The 2 inch loop is mostly for gun belts. The loop is wide enough to for the thick belts. It is approx. 1/4 inch. The mag holder slips over your belt and springs back toward the mag holder to complete the loop and stays put till your ready to remove the magazine holder.
