Tell us more about the "O" rings please. I've seen them used before but not applied to anything bearing serious weight. Any problems with slippage or releasing tension? Do you tie an extra knot after the rings as a backup. I'd love to see pictures.

I just switched to a buckle system but find the buckles a bit heavy. They certainly make it simpler to hang and/or adjust. Where can you purchase the "O" rings?

Thanks, Miguel
