2 methods for loosening and/or undoing the ring buckle:
1. my favorite: when threading the buckles, I pull a bight of the webbing through the rings instead of the whole loose end. To loosen and/or undo the rings buckle, just pull the free end of the bight. Just like tying a slip knot.
2. pull the free end of the webbing straight up or down so that it is at right angles to the suspension rope. That relieves the pressure of the rings enough that the webbing will slip free.
