I have webbing running through mine, which is tied off in the gap with a bowline knot; the other end of the webbing is long and I use it to hang the rings by. I could be wrong, but it seems like the webbing running through the rings helps a lot with added strength - after all, it's just PVC holding my big 225 lbs up. The webbing seems to distribute the stress over the entire ring, rather than focusing it at one point the way it would be if you did it the way you are proposing.
