instead of doing this, use a snap shackle, that's what they're for

never used one of these like this( quick release). Should work well but I wouldn't use it with much weight attached for fear of breaking the shackle (weight rating will decrease a lot without screwing shackle together) and damaging the threads with repeated pulling through chain. These aside, lighter duty use should be great.

I thought of it being used for littler stuff.

PS. Quick release shackles are also called snap shackles.
