You're never late with a V8, sadly I do not own a V8!

that's were you are wrong

4.

Load Bearing Belt
Each members
of the party should be equipped with a
load bearing or belay belt. Not only is the
belt able to support body weight for a
short period of time but it can also be
easily converted into a simple and effective seat harness which is suitable for
climbing ladder pitches and emergency hoists (see section on improvised
harnesses).
5.

A rope must not be tied dirrectly to a load bearing belt. The belt is
designed to have the load spread evenly across the whole width of the webbing.
If the rope is tied dirrectly to the belt it can put all the load onto the thin edge of
the webbing, which could cause it to fail. The prefered method is to have a "D"
ring or a delta/semicircular maillon permanently threaded onto the belt and
either attach the rope directly to the maillon or via a karabiner. It is acceptable
to clip a large karabiner directly to the belt, however care must be taken to
prevent loading the karabiner across its gate.

type in rappel belts, used by emergency services, armed forces, and can be used for emergency absail but
we use them for belaying up or down when climbing ladders needs 7,000 lbs to break it

i don't want to get into debate about load bearing belts or not.

But one thing for 100% certain i'd disagree with it the idea that it is 'acceptable' to use a karabiner directly on a belt as that texts suggests may be done. Its almost guaranteed to cross load in the event of a fall and break the gate.

If anyone's thinking of using a belt for hanging on (i've abseiled a proper free hanging pitch on one once out of 'necessity' (stupidity) when doing the Ogof Draenen round trip and it was actually not too uncomfortable - and that by the way is NOT a recommendation) please use a mailion of some sort - d ring is ideal - or as said - tie in directly.
