Seems like the snap shackle would bang around alot more?

Up to me, save your money and tie the halyard on. That's what I do, and it's no big deal. No heavy shackle to fly about and smack you in the head when you let go of it accidentally.

Here's how we tie ours on.. low profile, secure and cheap!!
