Yes, it will happen

I lost on S-hook off the front tow hook on my car when hitting a prodigious pothole at moderate speed. Luckily I was on surface streets so could pull over immediately and secure it. The S-hook was waving around bouncing off the hood - very annoying. I ditched the S-hooks and went to carabiners as you suggest.
