Pinning Fire Question

I've been going through various Merc talents in the Torhead skill calculator. I was a bit unclear about Pinning Fire:

Pinning Fire
Unload has a [50 / 100]% chance per hit to slow the target's movement by 50% for 2 seconds.

If you put 2 points into that, does that mean each hit from Unload (which I think is 3 hits, 1 per second?) will snare them for 2 seconds? I suppose if it isn't a cumulative, refreshing debuff, it may not actually come out to 6 seconds... but I just want to know if each hit will add to the snare, or if it just a flat 2s snare at the beginning of the channel?

Considering it specifically goes out of the way to say "Chance per Hit", I'm going to guess that it almost certainly has a chance to proc per tic, rather then just on activation.

Yeah I'd guess that each tick has a chance to refresh, but not stack.
