I did. I just got done with the job of converting over to a screw mount system. Good riddance. Even though I thought the solution I had was the best for the slot system, it was still ultimately prone to flaws at either end where the line would cut away at the webbing, leading to the start of a massive rip.

If anyone wants the "how did you do it" run down, I can type it up.
