Hitch safety chain hoops

Anyone else find it very difficult to hook the safety chain clips up to the hoops/rings on the receiver? Wondering if you can open those holes up a bit or what?

I added 1/2" chain quick link to the hitch and just hook the chains to those. Like these here.

Only problem I'd think with those is they'd be rusted after one winter

Now those are strong enough to do their job if the trailer were to ever become detached?

Just hook mine up backwards from bottom to top. Makes it much easier taking them off.
