Also check the alignment of the gripping plates, you should have very parallel jaws.
It only seems to slip when 2 strings are in the linear grippers, but the situation where 2 strings are in there only happens (no more than) 2 times in the stringing process. If I hold the strings in there pretty good they seem to be fine, it will prob just take some trial and error and scrap string to get the feeling down. I will look to see if it needs adjusting, but I think if anything, it just needs cleaning. Thanks!
