    What's a good way to get the triangle while preventing a slam?

    Push his hip away and break his posture before you lock.

    Hook either leg but preferably the one that enables you to create the proper angle for the triangle

    if they start to lift you and leave the trapped arm undefended, swing for the belly-down armbar

    So hook the leg behind the crease of the knee? This needs to happen before they begin to lift you?

    Walking your shoulders back never hurts.

    Hooking the leg should be your go to for preventing the pickup. Most of the time hooking the leg will cause your opponent to fall forward, and if you go with their momentum you can get em with the mounted triangle!

    As everyone else said hook the leg. Also, if you are controlling their posture the person should not be able to pick you up unless they are significantly larger than you.

    Just hook the outside arm or leg as Hall shows and he will need to be a roided Karelin to lift you.

    I've never been picked up when I get the 90 degree angle or grab their leg, though I'm large enough that people question if they should try to pick me up.

    if you properly triangled someone, it is really difficult for them to lift you up.
    [Your body should be perpendicular to him, ear parallel to their shoulders, leg right on the back of the neck, (hooking the arm or leg is optional) if you could hook the arm, might as well straight armlock to force him to defend/distract. ]

    Unless the other person is significantly bigger and stronger, in that case, you shouldn't even bother to try to submit him from the guard, sweep and get on top, try to submit the guy from the top instead.

    Hooking the arm leg is not optional, it's a must, at least in slam allow competitions. You don't need to be way stronger bigger to lift a person up who triangling you.. while i do agree that in terms of choking the person, hooking the arm/leg is optional, ts is asking how to avoid being slammed...

    Long limb Guys can triangle most people despite their size.

    Thanks everyone. I didn't know about hooking the arm or the shoulder walk. Anyone have any links to the shoulder walk?

    This thread inspired me to go (and get!) two triangles against a 240 powerlifter in rolling today. Was real careful about controlling posture, shoulderwalking, going for the underhook once, second time it helped not being afraid to adjust the distance by putting one foot on the hip to stretch him out and get a good angle.
