    cinch buckles: where to get?

    So awhile back I got some cinch buckle suspension straps for a fellow hanger here, skskinner I think? anyway, for my eno they work just great. I now have my blackbird which also has a version of the cinch buckle but the device doesn't fit the straps so they tend to slip if not centered just right. I got to change this!

    I know that what I got works (pictured below), where can I get them?
    Arrowhead equipment as a variation of the cinch buckle
    http://arrowheadequipment.webs.com/a...s/show/1324005
    and if I can't find the exact ones that I'm looking for,
    then I might have to go with them instead?
    I hate to change something that works so well ........
    quick to adjust, doesn't jam, stays secure, no backup knot necessary.

    perfect, thanks dave!
    I no longer see this version of cinch buckle
    being used by the hammock crowd?
    just forgotten, fallen out of favor (flavor), ?

    I guess so...I've tried 'em all, as well as rings, and this buckle is still my choice.

    Many of the folks here like to try new things, and they post the ideas. The cinch buckles are still used by some (me included) we just don't post about them because there is nothing new about them. I suppose if we found a new type, or supplier we might mention it.
