The short version: I think it is safe to use just as you are doing.
I have ordered a pair, well 2 pair, one for both hammocks, and plan on testing as soon as they arrive.
I found a weight quote for a zig zag cleat by another manufacturer. It quoted the weight at 0.08 lb (1.28 oz). So the cleat may be heavier than a pair of rings by about 0.48 oz, but if it is even simpler to use than the rings, then that would be okay too. Let us know what your cleat weight comes to.
