It sounds like he was using *just* amsteel and trying to connect to rings ala a Garda hitch that was slipping?
It sounds like he ordered/has the same suspension I have - 8' of Amsteel from each end of the hammock, and two 6' tree straps with a sewn loop on one end and a triangle ring on the other, although it sounds like he was trying to connect to some pre-existing straps/buckles, rather than using the webbing supplied by WBG, just like you are thinking, AS. The Amsteel is some slippery stuff, especially on polished metal rings.
The hitchcraft will work, it just requires one more "hitch" to keep it from slipping.
