I have the double. I used to have the single and never had any issues but then started to read about a few mishaps. Mostly human error or failure due to a knock off. As for error people forget to lock the carabiner.

Quick release clamp
 


I put a key ring chain ringy thing just as a backup here. I don't need it to swivel, just slide.

As I just mentioned, the Carryspeed is a BlackRapid-type strap with an Arca-Swiss style plate. Might have worked for you!

I've seen them. Doesn't appeal to me. The strap is too 'webby', I just want something simple, and it has a similar interconnect system. Too complicated, the Kirk is just one piece of metal and a simple strap.
