That 2015 Silverado hitch and its safety chains loops have caused more than a few headaches but I do have a solution that has worked for others. A clevis such as # 6495-401-04 won't work but what I have recommended before is to route some safety cables through each loop and secure the 2 ends together with quick links such as in kit # RM-910648-12. Then you can attach the safety chains from the trailer to the quick links.

Wear would not be an issue since the cables are more or less just hanging there. And the quick links make them easy to remove if you want to take them off when not towing.
