Add a split ring to the slug, or find a better clip like the Mustad Fast attach which is a lot more versatile in its application.

They look easy, but they're just so fine thin and strong that I've always struggled using those snap style of clips.
You can't get enough pressure to open them without hurting your fingers, let alone fiddely.

I much prefer the mustad fastach clips, I even use them with squid and they're bang so much easier.
