    I have a structural ridgeline so I cinch my straps about as tight as I can make them. When it comes time to break camp, I pull on the free end of the webbing with one hand as if to make it even tighter, while releasing the cam of the buckle with the other hand. This method works every time and with little effort, plus it prolly helps in preventing extra wear on the strap.

    Yeah, I've noticed that even with polyester straps, there is enough stretch overnight to be able to loosen my cinch buckles, so I figure it would be the same with these.
