Unclipping draws happens, it doesn't bear well to think about it too much though.
I had a nut unclip and fall out of a std draw on a long (15m) fall. Who knows whether this is caused by whipping (gate inertia causing opening), direct impact, or something else

I think Bill Forrest simply added the small loops at either end of open slings to capture the biner - Rabbit Runners . . .

But that whole thing about them unclipping is not that big a deal imho - A quick look sorts that out when racking, personally never seen it actually happen myself . . .

Mind you I did recently take a fall, pulling a small wire in the process and it somehow magically detached itself from the draw - draw still on rope but wire missing. Found it on the ground unbroken ???
