Chuck,What I have done lacking that, is to use the loop to double over on itself and create a knot on the quick link of at least some expected properties.
I believe the knot Tony is referring to is called a "Lark's Head" .
ALL "knots" & "sharp bends" reduce strength . . . ( Including those "bends" your loops take around those quick links )
I did some research before making the above statement.
Please remember that my concerns are only the safety and success of your project, Chuck !
