I'll clarify, the way they did that is fine. If you do it yourself you need to make sure the slot is cut cleanly and just large enough for the link to fit through. If it's a hole, the pin will bend or pull through before the chain link bends. Also, I thought the OEM would put them on leashes so someone can't put undersized fastener in for lost pins.
