Leash D-Hooks

I'm looking for something that is more secure than these d-hook quick release leashes.

I have a 3 yr old Min Pin and sometimes when she gets excited, she'll spin in circles and the top rings of the harness will get stuck in a way that they force/push the d-hook release open. I'ts happened a 2-3 times (luckily only in my backyard) but it's one time too many.

All the leashes i've ever seen at Petsmart all have these d-hook quick release style and the only way i can stop it from happening is to hold the lease approx elbow/shoulder height so that the hook is always on top.

Does anyone have something different or can point me in the direction of something safer/reliable??

I just grabbed a clip i use randomly on my leashes, to give you a couple of examples of how you can clip it on.
Just make it work for what you need. Be creative! And a photo of my dog, because he got excited when he saw me grab a leash! ;)
