I have a set I was thinking of selling. PM me if interested.
I say add a use at your own risk warning and put them back up for sale !! There isnt a darn thing wrong with them,, there is allways someone who likes to pick apart other peoples stuff and these buckles are as solid as they can be,, but again, this is just my opion
I had a slip on your cinch buckle. After adjusting one side the webbing wasn't aligned properly and it "jerked" dropping me about one foot. I thought that they are self adjusting, self tightening, self checking and self locking. Please take them of your site as they are clearly dangerous to use.
On the serious note, doing nothing about it would be bad. But totaly withdrawing them is equally bad. Let us know, investigate, rewrite the manual. But don't punish other users...
And one more good point, disclaimer from other vendor:

Please don't add to the madness of health & safety...
When I first started using them, I had them slip. After conferring with another hanger, I realized I had them upside down and didn't have the amsteel on the side with both straps coming up. Once I had them the correct way, I never had any more slipping.
I love my Dutch Buckles and am glad that I got a set before "the incident".
