Glad you found a solution that worked.
Another solution that wouldn't have involved redoing the ridgeline would have been to attach your rings to the continuous loops on the ends of your hammock then girth hitching the ridgeline to the continuous loops instead of the rings.
That's how I've had my ridgeline attached. It makes it easily removable also, if I like - just un-girth hitch the ridgeline off the continuous loops.
Gray Amsteel is the continuous loop and the orange is my Dynaglide ridgeline.
