I may be wrong and can't come up with as detailed an answer as George but I

in the trilogy all refused to take the ring from Frodo or Bilbo.
That makes sense! Kinda strange how that would work but it explains why nobody has ever tried to take it from one who failed to destroy it while he was right at Mount Doom.
