When the sail is up and I am about to release the bitter end, I push the rope in the cleat with my thumb. This has become a thoughtless automated action, perhaps that is why I didn’t think of mentioning it earlier. Since I made this little push a part of my standard preparation ritual I never had a slipping halyard again.
