I'm trying to make something like this http://www.strapworks.com/Side_Release_Straps_Belts_s/51.htm

As you can see, the straps feeds through the buckle and extends on. If pulled on, the strap will continue to feed through.

With what I'm making, I need it to be able to feed through like that, but when in use, I need it to stop sliding even with pulling force is applied.

What can I use to "lock" the strap in place temporarily and easily "unlock" when adjusting the strap? Are there any lock in place buckles? Anti-slip devices? I have no idea. I was hoping one of you guys might know of something.

I know it makes it difficult, but I can't say exactly what I'm making as I hope to perhaps get a patent.

The site you posted sells the buckles under their "plastic hardware" link, "cam buckles and strap adjusters". 
You could also get a cargo tie-down at an auto supply or big box store or cannibalize an old backpack.
