Dipping belt

Just wondering, I bought a "World Gym" dipping belt from Workout World, I'm wondering exactly how much weight it can handle as I can't find any information myself. Most I've used on it is 35kg but I'm planning to use a good bit more and the last thing I want is for it to break and have my toes broken by a couple of 20kg plates Has anyone got any ideas as to how much it will take?
Cheers.

    You wont break your toes if you bend your knees so that your legs are behind you.

    I would imagine as long as the buckles are quite strong and the leather where they join are strong, you should be fine.

    I got up to 60k on one before but it was probably too heavy for me at the time, I saw a mate get up to 100k on one, the difficult part was dismounting iirc.

    I've actually been meaning to buy a dipping belt.

    Yeah the worst part for me is walking to the dip station with a load of plates swinging about between my legs
