Bad idea

Somewhere in my basement is a Kong swivel that has cracked its "forks" that hold the pin, where the pin goes through. The forks are both bent outward due to side loading.

I recommend you attach with a bow shackle that allows it to pivot to avoid side stress on the swivel. It's not designed for maximum side loads. Or eliminate the swivel, I have.
