Mission Belt to Appear on ABC's Beyond the Tank

Mission Belt is diving back into the Tank! Most of our fans and customers were introduced to us when we debuted on ABC’s hit television show Shark Tank. The Sharks loved our amazing, no holes belt and as you probably know, we ended up partnering with Daymond John.

Since that time we have had tremendous success thanks to our amazing customers. Due in large part to our success we were selected for a spinoff show called Beyond The Tank.

In this show the Sharks review the companies they’ve invested in and give a real-world glimpse into the challenges a company faces after appearing on the hit show. We’re honored to be part of the premiere season of Beyond The Tank.

Growth Means Opportunity & Challenges

Being on the original show was a tremendous springboard for Mission Belt, but it wasn’t all skittles and rainbows. Our meteoric growth brought with it its own set of challenges. Managing inventory and finding the right people to fill key roles quickly were two major hurdles. Our growing reputation has also brought attention from competitors. Through it all we’ve been fortunate enough to not just survive but thrive in a competitive landscape.

We successfully expanded into licensed sports apparel with our NCAA, NBA, and NHL lines. And we’re not done yet. We’re building even more lines of our famous belt. If you’re on our mailing list, you’ll be among the first to hear about our newest offerings in the works, so be sure to sign up!

Giving Back & Remembering The Mission

Through it all we have been fortunate to not just grow our company, but also grow our ability to help others around the world. In pursuit of our mission to fight world hunger, a dollar from every belt sold is donated to micro-lending organization Kiva.

We recently completed 20,000 loans in over 70 countries. Thanks to our customers, we have been able to give more people a hand up with micro loans then we ever could have imagined.

Mission Belt is making a big difference to more and more people everywhere…and it all started on Shark Tank. So get excited! Grab some popcorn and a drink and watch for Mission Belt on Beyond The Tank. Thanks for being part of the mission!

Comfortable Click Belt - As Seen On TV - READ THIS FIRST

The Mission Belt is also known as a click belt that provides unmatched comfort and style. If you've never experienced the comfort of a click belt we challenge you to try it. Very few people who do try it end up regretting the decision.

What makes our belts so comfortable is the no-holes design ratcheting system that allows for micro-adjustments. That way no matter what the situation you can cinch the belt or loosen it to the exact position you need. That is the kind of unmatched comfort our customers have come to love.

On top of that, we've made our belts stylish and sleek. They are versatile enough to be used in various settings from casual to business. We offer click belts in leather and nylon. We also have licensed sports belts so you can rep your favorite team.

Mission Belt got its start on the hit TV show Shark Tank. We're sometimes referred to as the As Seen On TV belt because of how popular our belts became after the show aired. Since then we've been featured in various re-runs as well as our own appearance in the hit spin-off show called Beyond The Tank.

Why Buy A Click Belt by Mission Belt?

Besides the fact that our belts are the most comfortable and stylish belts on the planet, we also believe very strongly in giving back. We started this company with a mission to help others overcome poverty. That's why $1 from every belt sold goes to fight world hunger through our partner KIVA, a micro-lending charity. We've participated in many thousands of loans in dozens of countries and in so doing helped thousands of people overcome poverty. We love being able to give back through our efforts.

Mission friends,

Meet Santa! She is 34 years old and lives in Calceta, Ecuador with her husband. She has two children that are in school that she and her husband are helping fund. Santa needed a small loan to purchase food and medicine for the pigs that she is raising in order to sell them to neighbors and families around her. Being able to sell the pigs has helped her to fund her children’s education so that she does not have to leave home to work, which means that she and her family can remain close together.

Mission Friends, 

Meet Vasa! Vasa is 46 years old and lives in Vailoa Tai, Samoa with her husband and three children. With a loan from Mission Belt, Vasa was able to purchase supplies for the farm that she raises her pigs on. She sells her pigs to people in the community and is now able to keep her farm running more smoothly with the supplies she purchased. Since pork is a staple food in Samoan culture, Vasa needs to keep her pigs happy and healthy for the many people that will benefit from them.
