    Clearly this is a psychological strain where a ring is forced, at manufacture to form a permanent relationship with an unknown partner at some time in the future.

    Original Smart rear ABS rings are made from iron powder and binder sintered together. Sintered metal can take very little strain before fracturing. That is why they fail when rust forms under them.
    The superior but very cheap J&R rings on eBay are machined out of mild steel hence a lot stronger in tension.
