    Took awhile but I found my early (original ?) version of the Dutch Buckles. They do work.

    Had to take then off the tree huggers to take the picture

I think the solution is to add a back up knot to the instructions. That way if they are used upside down or backwards they will still hold. Admittedly if you set up in the dark, it is hard to tell they are oriented the right way, with the larger slot towards the tree. I liked it that it didn't have a back up knot but it is a good failsafe. I need to determine if that is the correction and then I need to get new instructions made and printed. In the meantime, kick back in your hammock and enjoy living.
    You could put something on the top edge to distinguish it. Like what you see on the spine of some knives. The backup knot is still a good idea, even though I've never had a problem with mine slipping.

    Integrity, craftsmanship, and professionalism. That is precisely why you have and will to continue to have my business.
    Dutch and Keith do it right!

    Nice work Dutch. First class operation you have.

    A simpler buckle in titanium would be a good idea for many people. Faster and less chance they will use it incorrectly. Personally I like the Titanium version of the Dutch Buckle, only minor problem for me is that it is slightly slower to adjust than some other options I have tried.
