I have a pair of these but can't figure out how to open the buckle to release tension on the strap - I just keep making it tighter. What's the trick?
The "wings" on the buckle look like you are supposed to squeeze them. As you probably found out, this does nothing. Press them both in towards the boot and the ratchet will release. Side benefit: If you press one at a time towards the boot, it will loosen by just one notch. Nice if you want a slight adjustment.
