The d-rings are just melting away, is there some sort of removable type d-ring that is plastic or stainless steel out there that I can replace them with?

Why not make some?

Easy enough with polyethylene, from a discarded kitchen chopping board.

Or cut them off an old backpack .

I think I may have an image of couple I made. Will post if I can find it.
