I have tended to hang the BB hammock a bit looser recently, more in line with what I think Brandon was saying in the instruction sheet. So that sometimes when I sit in it, there is some slack in the RL, which tightens up adequately once I lay down, for some reason.
Anyway, with a looser pitch to start with, there is always a little slack that I can pull on from the hammock end(pulling the hammock towards the tree), removing all tension from the triangle rings. Which makes readjustment pretty easy. Sometimes I have to first "push" the webbing back through the rings to get the rings to release their grip.
Same thing with the triglides and cinch buckle- the key to easy readjustment is to remove all tension from the buckle. Of course, I realize this might be more difficult if you are pulling a ridgeline tight to start with. Then you are probably going to have to weight the hammock to loosen things up a bit.
This ( triangle buckle) is my favorite overall suspension set up, though my JRB triglides and my good old cinch buckle modification are very close. Or some times I chuck it all and just do a quick round turn with half hitch. Then even if I don't have some sort of adjustable buckle, it is still pretty darn quick to untie and adjust if needed.
