    I think you want something like this. This is called a swivel as both rings are free to turn, You attach one end to your rocket and loop the parachute through the other end.

    Those parts can be found in stores where they sell hardware (screws, nuts, bolts). They are made in many sizes and should be available in the strength you need.
