    Cinch buckle & 1" webbing....

    Finally got my cinch buckles from Onrope1. Any special method for the webbing with these...doubling back, etc.? Also, for those of you using this support system, have you noticed any slippage in the rain? Thanks.

    No special method needed with the webbing. Only time I had any slippage was when it was not lined up correctly. It let me down slow and easy. Always check to be sure buckle/webbing is lined up correctly EVERYTIME you enter/exit the hammock. Better safe than sorry.

    It's essential that if you are using ring buckles that you back it up with a slippery half hitch. But that's not necessary if using the cinch buckles, at least not in my experience...and I have and do use both systems.

    All I can say is with a name like "Splat" I hope you get it right!

    I use cinch buckles and as long as the little bar in the middle is straight and flush against the webbing, I've found them to be 100% reliable. I did have one slip once and discovered the bar wasn't seated properly. (setting up in the dark and in a hurry) I used rings prior to that and found I had to be much more diligent with them. I love the cinch buckles. Keep in mind I use them on a Claytor hammock without a ridgeline. You may experience difficulties if using them on a ridgeline as you need a degree of slack to release them.

    My bad! I just noticed you said "in the rain". Same answer...I've been in several torrential rains....zero slippage. Just get it set correctly....straight with no twists of the webbing within the buckle.

    seems they would be great for setting up a claytor if you did the mods I did on my No Net

    This way you could use a biner or the quick link to attach the buckles...just a thought...
