I think the problem with the ones I had was they were polished stainless steel. THey are very shiny, and the polished edges just didn't grip. Plus I don't know if the curve in the buckles hurts the grip. The rapelling harness I have has a buckle on it that is flat. These are curved, and I think that might have some effect.
