That's a good idea, the only thing that concerns me about that is the fact that you then have all the links floating around waiting to get bound up in something...

They shouldnt get tied up....They sit right in the mount and float. Nowhere they can get tied up really

----------

I might just do it to the top ones as well so I can just take the whole link off. The parts were less than $5 anyways

This is true. Is the link bound in there much? Or does it just slide right out?

Slides right out. For mine, a 7/16" one works perfectly with almost no play in it.
