Organized trail runs and most 4x4 clubs do not allow pin type clevis because they separate too easily when pulled on. Screw-in type clevis are stronger, and more secure. Either tighten the cross pin with a long Phillips screwdriver or as suggested use wire or a zip tie to secure them.

Tow straps with steel hooks on them are also not allowed.

I reefed mine on with a pair of 14" pipe wrenches. I have a two others I keep inside to attach if needed. I also keep the pipe wrenches in my tool box just in case I need to remove the bumper mounted ones..you know for that one guy on the trail that has no recovery points at all.

Don't remember where I saw it, but someone places a ring of pipe insulation (the black dense foam stuff) between the ring and the mount on both sides to eliminate the rattling.

This. I just wrapped mine w/ a little teflon tape and tightened it down pretty tight. It hasn't gone anywhere since, so I'm happy with it.

(even though i do love my duct tape)
Its a Clevis. A D ring is something else. tighten them on with a screwdriver and leave it in the jeep to take them off.

That's what I do as well. Never lost one yet.

Everything in my jeep rattles so much that a rattling D-ring is the last thing I notice rattling.

I use a rubber o ring.
Keeps it tight, and is easy to take off when needed.

What about going to a 3 piece shackle ? Where I work, we are not allowed to use the 2 piece units' for the same reason the OP started this thread. With a proper keeper installed it won't come off.
