My friend Tom gently hit the ground due to slippage on his ring buckle system. The first night in the Olympics, he could not stop it from slipping ( he had not had trouble at home and was surprised). I told him about the half hitch ( I think it was half hitch) addition I read about here. That worked and he was good that first night and the following nights. But during an afternoon nap, he somewhat slowly hit the ground. He had just made some kind of adjustment and apparently did something wrong with his "no slip knot", or something, I'm not sure exactly what. He had no more trouble after that incident.
FWIW, I have had zero slippage with my cinch buckle.
