Yes thats what I meant.
The other suggestion I mentioned was taking the working end, make a loop and feed it through the first loop and tighten. Doing this will allow you to pull the working end and it will undo both loops with one pull.
I also second Brandon's suggestion of trying the cinch buckles from Arrowhead equipment. They do not require a back up hitch, are very secure and are smaller and lighter than descending rings.
