Expert Reply:

You are not the first customer to have issues with the safety chain hooks on the OEM trailer hitch for your 2020 Ford truck as this has been an issue for a few years now. Using a quick link like the Fulton # 49135 that you referenced might be a good option, as long as the gap on the link is large enough to fit around the loops. When opened, the quick link has a gap that measures 9/16 of an inch and the inside length is 3-1/4 inches. I have attached a couple images to clarify these dimensions.
