    I'm still very happy with the ring buckle supports that I've used for a while now, but I'm considering switching over to the cc buckles. I saw a couple sets in use over the weekend at the RRG Hang and they look quite a bit more secure. I very well may have to give them a go. I've got a set here (Thanks again Grizzly Adams!) and just might have to give them a go some time soon.

    I'm in the throes of suspension decision making myself! I need to buy some longer webbing and then play around. There's a ton of ideas floating around, but the rings seem like favorites so far.

    Welcome JohnW.
    Do yourself a favor and get both the rings and cinch buckles. Decide which you like better after using both. I have used both in the field and I like the cinch buckles better. The reason the ring buckles are more popular is because they were recommended for use initially in the famous ring buckles thread that reads like a long book. http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...t=ring+buckles If I remember correctly, Just Jeff said he was switching from the Crazy Creek buckles (no longer available but the same as cinch buckles)
    to the ring buckles because he thought the CC were harder to release under stress than the rings. He later changed his mind on that. He also no longer uses the two separate small pieces of webbing connected to the CC buckles (cinch buckles). The cinch buckles are better IMO cause you are not relying on a knot to be tied. They will slip if you dont tie a knot after the rings. Not so with the cinch buckles. The rings also have the potential of separating much easier than the cinch buckles. Trust me when I
    say that the cinch buckles just feel much safer. They are plenty easy to adjust under pressure. Their too cheap not to try em both out and then decide.

    I finally switched to 3 trek-light carabiners per end. The two that act like ring buckles pull the rope real closely together, unlike the rings, and the go right through the end of the tree-hugger loop. I pull it through with an up-from-the-back and split-the-middles coming down method. Kind of like tightening a moto helmet. I the do 2-3 wraps around the rope pointing towards the hammock, pull it tight up against the carabiners, and do one double-slip through the middle of the carabiner. Stupid easy, never slips and takes around 2-4 seconds to do.

    I'm guessing a picture or few would help?

    FF: I'm sorry that I never got back with you on buying the second set of cinch buckles. I just kept putting it off to the point that I look like a real-deal lamer right now. I'm sure that you got rid of them easy, but that still doesn't make it right. I do seriously apologize.
