Maybe I’m doing something wrong but I am having trouble latching the belt when I’m putting on each shoe. Maybe my shoes are faulty. It takes me quite a lot of time and effort and I think it should be easier. Any suggestions? Do I need to request replacements?
thank you

Are you holding up the catch on the clip , or the release button when you're trying to do this ? There should be no difficulty whatsoever to put the strap in, leave the buckle alone, simply enter the strap into the buckle and press it in gently. There is NO force required at all.

It doesn’t catch unless I force the strap about as far as it will go. I don’t hold up on the clip or the release button.
thanks for the response. I’ll keep trying and I’ll try to find the correct way to easily get the buckle secure. Is there a video ?

Unless there are no teeth on the strap , or the ratchet part of the buckle has broken off , I'm simply at a loss to understand what the problem is.

After a lot of effort, it catches . Thank you for your suggestions, I’ll work on my technique.

I got new shoes about a month ago and I have a high instep and I have a similar issue where when I enter the strap in to ratchet it does not work and I found that when strap goes over and in to ratchet the part where strap pulls over to other side of shoe catches and it’s not far enough in ratchet i put it down to my high instep and now I just pull strap over further to the ratchet and push it in to ratchet then use ratchet while pushing strap in and seems to work but I think it’s more my issue than a fault

Any answer ? I have to fight to get 1 click on the strap. Once my foot is in the shoe the strap just isn’t long enough to reach over and click in

Unfortunately, I still have a lot of trouble latching.

I bought some on Amazon. So much better. 3 Velcro straps. More comfortable and way easier. I wish I got them instead of the peloton ones from the start. Shimano SH-RC 100….I had to take the cleats off of my peloton shoes and put them on the new ones but it only took 5 minutes.
