Crossbody strap coming undone?

I have one cross body bag and those pegs that help to adjust the length of the strap keep coming out of the leather hole. The leather hole may be a tad stretched out but it isn't severe.

This issue drives me crazy. I will be walking down the street, the peg will come out of the leather hole and the length of the strap will stretch and hit my knees (I am short). I then have to stop on the street and adjust it and this happens 2-4 times a day.

Maybe it is just my bag? I want to try another cross body style/brand but I am afraid this will happen with every single one. Am I the only person who has had this issue? Has anyone found a fix?

The peg and hole I am speaking about it hard to describe so I have attached a picture from YouTube. IMG_1495538354.699346.jpg

Not all cross body bags use pegs. A lot of them use buckles which probably are more secure. I wonder if the pegs are cheaper as it seems to be the thing to use with newer bags. My mansur gavriel crossbody uses pegs but I haven't had this issue (yet). Maybe it depends on how much stuff is in the bag?
