When you go to steal the actual ring just crouch in front of the sliding door and wait until you're hidden (you will be eventually even if only for a second.) After you have the ring go behind the boxes the guy is sitting on and crouch down. Move around until you are hidden and then plant it. If you have a low % chance of planting the ring then make a save right before you plant it and keep reloading until you're successful.
