Yeah, that works very well, we make them from rebar and weld a chain link on each end and put a few feet of chain on it. We also use copper single strand as a release (buddy is union electrician) because it's reusable and dumping plastic is illegal. ;)

I use to weld them up out of rebar scraps, two parallel pieces with slide ring between, but my welds sucked so bad usually broke free anyway, lol.

I'd experiment with zip ties - I'm thinking need something touch stronger.

I've recovered a lot of snagged anchors where the chain and / or rode was hung up. Anchor was fine.

I've seen Danforth / fluke anchors rigged to trip - hole drilled in mud pan and shackle used to secure chain. Chain then tied at shank eye - with few links of slack.

I use wire it too instead of zip ties . I just twist the wire ends aound each other a few time i I posted about this before , years ago but the picture explains it better ,
