I've had those suspenders on throwline loops for a while now. Maybe 2 years of occasional use, sitched in place on my old chainsaw pants. That pfanner elastic is surprisingly durable

Sew some buttons on or if you can't sew, then hammer some bachelor buttons in.
Then get a pair of these:

No risk to cut the eye with the edges? It seems a tad too sharp and wide for me (it makes two small radius angles on the rope).

Biggest pain ive had splicing in ages. 3/4 inch Sterling Atlas line straight to my mooring swivel. The core is so fat the burry beat up my hands badly. Couldn't get the last 1/2 inch down, hence the seizing to tighten up the eye. Should be plenty strong still, 22k breaking, and the boat weighs only 2k in a sheltered cove.
