Whether you can do this or not isn't really relevant. It's a bad mounting method without any way to avoid heal-toe on the fasteners. Connecting rods allow you to react the loads on the splitter. Repeated loading like this will eventually lead to the fasteners failing (or pull thru on the composite).
Oh, and those guys look like giant tools.
