I went for a 2” snap shackle as previously posted in this thread by ‘nikalaitzian’
It’s 316 Stainless steel, the 2” one is a similar overall size as the original Ozone clip and is only very slightly heavier.
I went for the fixed one, rather than the swivel as the eye for the thick rope is bigger.
Very easy to fit on this particular leash.
The leash is a shorty now supplied by Ozone;

As stated previously this is a one piece leash. When you hit the release the large rope loop is opened and everything flies away with your bar.
Ensure rope has free unobstructed movement to allow clear release from spreader bar, as per the photos on the item’s web site.
(Do not larks head the rope around your spreader bar!)
This seems to be a good cold weather/cold fingers solution too.
