    Can someone tell me what the Dutch cinch buckles are made out of? And how much they rated to hold?

    The cinch buckles are steel and I believe are rated at 4000 lbs breaking strength which is far in excess of what the webbing will take.

    This will give you some idea on strength, from LostinSpace.....

    Well....I had a cinch buckle fail me once. I had no back-up knot. See at 1:25.
    But it was not the cinch buckle that you are getting.

    I just bought a set of the Dutch Buckles tied with the loops to test them out. Was getting tired of messing with the slings when there's weight in the hammock. Will be leaving them on my go to rig. Also got them for the younger grand kids - so simple that they don't need help. Just remember to lock them in with a slippery hitch to keep them from slipping.

    Do you think it would be the same ratings for this one I'm getting from Dutch since they are different buckels?

    Dutch will have to confirm on an overall safe working load for the system, but they both use the same buckle. Dutch's version will have an amsteel loop instead of webbing on one side and the webbing for the strap may be different, but I'm betting the weak link is still the webbing which should make the ratings very close.
