Best Burly Binding Ratchets/Buckles & Straps

I use snowboard buckles and straps on my monoski/sitski for a seatbelt...need to replace them and want the best/burliest I can get...biggest issue is starting the ladder strap into the buckle with the ol belly in the way...also slippage happens...any suggestions? The old ones I had worked great but were chipped up etc so weren't grabbing/holding well...the replacement buckles have the release on top which I think is also not good for this application...is there a side release or non top release ultra burly ratcheting buckle?

thx..

Why wouldn't you use a seat belt just out of curiousity? Anyways almost all buckles are going to have that top release lever or a push down release option. It almost sounds like you might be better suited to use the Ride Barrell Roll Ratchet as its pressure released, while crappy for a snowboard binding practicality, for what you're doing it might work perfectly.

regular seat belts slip and are bulky...velcro (factory fastening system) gets filled with snow..the ratchet is nice because you get the leverage to crank it down...I googled the Ride Barrel Roll Ratchet and didn't find it in a big picture online...I'll try the local ski shop though I'm betting they are still selling pools, hot tubs and patio furniture...

You could contact Ride directly too and see if they'd just hook you up with a pair. I think the fact that it requires an outward pressure to release might work for what you're looking to do.

Looks like maybe their PowerUL might be an option too...except for the top release lever...

A push down button might be better too since it would maybe take more direct pressure to release instead of a lever sticking up and getting caught on clothing etc...
