They got that name from JustJeff, I believe, because that's where he first saw them, and he actually got his from them I believe. I guess they are used somehow as a part of the Crazy Creek Cribs.
I agree that they should probably be called cinch buckles, and I've used that term here before, but it hasn't 'stuck' yet.
Props go out to JustJeff and BlackBishop for finding/sharing the info originally about the buckles!
They do work really well. I'm starting to lean in favor of the buckles over the rings. I believe they are a safer choice than the rings for two reasons. No knot to tie and you dont have to make sure the rings are in line with your suspension rope or uneven. Probably safer for the masses. That being said, I've never had any problems with my rings.
