    Replacing those troublesome Warbonnet cinch triangles

    I love the webbing that Warbonnet puts on their hammocks. It is light and thin and really the best, but if you try to get rid of the triangles he uses for adjusting the webbing by replacing them with the mechanical cinch buckles the thin webbing won't hold. So I had had enough this week of not being able to loosen the tension on my hammock suspension, I am going back to the old cinch buckles that are really easy to adjust.
    As I tried this webbing and that webbing I really regretted having to use the thicker, heavier stuff, so I came up with a way to make the Warbonnet webbing hold very tightly in the old Rope1 cinch buckles.
    What I did was take a short piece of the thicker webbing and putting it thru the cinch buckle then run the thin Warbonnet through it right on top of the thicker piece. It held really good and actually loosened easier than ever, so I made one for each cinch buckle and sewed them on the buckles.
    Now I just use the buckle with the thin Warbonnet webbing just as if it was thicker and is seems to be very reliable.

    A nice simple solution for a slippage problem. I may copy this for extra
    safety but so far I have been unable to make my Dutchware cinch buckles
    slip when using the Warbonnet webbing.

    You are right. but you cannot use the thin Warbonnet webbing on the Rope1 cinch buckles, and they can be release with very little effort, unlike the original Warbonnet cinch buckles. I didn't know they were made by Dutch.

    This has been my experience with the Dutch cinch buckles and WB webbing as well...no slipping.

    I haven't made myself clear. The Dutch cinch buckles and the Warbonnet webbing work great as far as holding and not slipping in concerned but are a PIA when wanting them to release under any tension. But the buckles you see in the photos are not Dutch's. They are the ones you can get at Rope 1 and work way better. NOW they also work with Warbonnet webbing without slipping since I added the fix.

    I was unaware of rope 1 store until you mentioned it. Another good site to check out.

    I see the cinch buckles you are using. Designed for thicker webbing and so probably easier to use and I am all for easy.
    I think I will get a pair and use your extra strap method.

    I really have a hard time with the standard Warbonnet buckles, this is going to be nice.

    Or...we haven't made ourselves clear. The WB double cinch buckle is not made by Dutch.

    This is a Dutch cinch buckle...

    Good solution you came up with. Have you tried folding the webbing first and then feeding the folded webbing through the cinch buckle?
