The use of 1 and 3-space splice clips are recommended for installing Flat-Flex® XT belts. Consult the chart below for the recommended number and combinations of one- and three-space clips to use for the number of spaces across the width of various Flat-Flex® XT belts. These numbers may be different than for classic Flat-Flex.
