All, If you are interested....
I did a quick search at Lowes and found the link to what I believe is the product Pierre used to make those training rings. If I am wrong, please correct me Pierre.
Looks like it can be located in the electrical department of Lowes or Home Depot.

Sorry, can't get it to work for me either. Just have to drive yourself to lowes/homedepot to check it out. Look in the electrical section. I picked two of them up today for a grand total of $1.32 + tax. Some straps and they will be ready to hang.

That's a 2" diameter piece WAY too big!

You need a 1/2" or 3/4" at most because they are measured by ID (inside diameter).

The straps on Eva's are special since they are adjustable at 2 inch increments without buckles. This is my trademarked design... Not to mention its just hard to make!

But you can use truck tie down straps and they work just fine.

Thanks Pierre, the 2" diameter was the only one that would show up on the web site. I think we were assuming when someone went to the hardware store they would grab the diameter that fit them.
Anyway, great idea Pierre and thanks Franklin for the proper link.

Remember you are going to find them in the electrical department. You're looking for electrical conduit!

Angela,
Go to Lowes or Home Depot and move to the electrical section. The piece you are looking for is a 45 degree bend called non-metalic electrical conduit. Get two of the size that fits your hand the best, I would guess that's about 1/2 inch for you. The grand total of your purchase will be around 2 bucks.
Next you need to purchase you some straps to hang them, there are a few options here, I would search the MB, there are many discussions about the best way to do this.
Pierre sewed some webbing together with a box stitch I believe. If you want to go that way I think he may jump in and let you know exactly how he did that, if not there are a few ways to do it just do a search. Good luck
