The belt is tied using what is basically a reef knot, only formed from tape rather than cord. The essential point is to avoid twisting the strands, thus ensuring that they lie flat:

Begin with the centre of the belt at the small of the back Pass the right side strand over the left side Then under the left strand and out the top
Pass what is now the left strand over the right strand Then under the right strand and out the top Ensuring the strands lie flat and have not become twisted
Tighten the knot firmly Making sure the ends are of equal length And it should look like this!

Points to note:
