I can find my own though. One thing to be sure of is the part you didn't describe, the rope binding the rings together. See for example these rings
. The rings are laid on top of each other, the rope has a few wrappings around the rings and is tight.
Something else you can trip with slippery straps is to push a double-over strap between the rings and out the other side. This doubles the width.
or it could be that theres something fundamental here that you don't see and so can't describe. If the above doesn't help then maybe a picture of what you're doing would shed some light on the problem.
