You can get weight bearing metal rings from Home Depot or Lowes for $2. They are in the Hardware section and say "weight bearing to 200 lbs"

My ring sling was made for me. It had padding sewn into the edges for comfort and below the ring was a braid to prevent slipping, with another ring on the end about 1.5ft down from the other rings to get rid of the excess fabric and make for easy adjusting. Ring slings are GREAT
