Generally, no. It will slip in conventional ladderlocs. I think that ITW Nexus developed some that will not slip, but I just stick with nylon webbing.

Edit:
Found it

No problem. I'd suggest using webbing on straps anyway. It is not worth the minimal weight savings if the grosgrain were to fail.

I believe they make the buckles. The minimum order is very, very high. It is not a distributor.
